- Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain has been issued a 10-game ban and free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel a four-game suspension by the NFL for violations of the league's substance abuse policy. McClain will miss the first 10 games of the upcoming season for Dallas after missing the first four games of the 2015 campaign for violating the same policy. The Cowboys re-signed him for 2016 for $5 million. Dallas has other defenders facing bans as well. Manziel was released by the Cleveland Browns in March after going 2-6 in his eight NFL starts and the four-game ban would be served when he returns to the league, if ever.
