According to multiple sources, if McClain, who was acquired Tuesday, does not make the team or is not on the Cowboys' 53-man roster for five games or 46-man game-day roster for three games in 2014, then the Ravens will not receive any compensation.


Or the Ravens and Cowboys could simply swap 7th rounders....

As it stands right now, the trade calls for the Cowboys to give up their seventh-rounder in 2016 if McClain is on the 53-man roster for five games or 46-man roster for three games only if their pick is better than the Ravens' pick in the round. If it is, then the teams will swap selections.


Or if McClain plays in 50% of the Cowboys defensive snaps, then Baltimore would receive Dallas' 6th and we get Baltimore's 7th.

But...yeah. This is same ol' Jerry stupidity Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes


So either way we aren't losing anything, and we gain possibly a 6th or 7th rounder? Okay, I'm still cool with it!

Except that if we get a draft pick, that means McClain turned it around and was somewhat productive (ie, we gain the 6th because he played 50% of their defensive snaps).

If he's productive enough to make their roster, we don't gain a pick, we potentially swap 7ths which, while it's nice for us because we don't need him, is a small price to pay for the Cowboys to get a guy who made the 53/46 man cut.
