McClain signed as a free agent with the Dallas Cowboys on March 12, 2014. Although he looked strong and was taking advantage of the added work as Henry Melton recovered from knee surgery during off-season workouts, a high-ankle sprain he suffered in training camp affected his momentum. He played 13 games in a reserve role and finished with 20 tackles (3 for loss), 7 quarterback pressures, one sack and a forced fumble. His best game came against the Washington Redskins, notching 4 tackles, one sack and a forced fumble.
In 2015, he missed time during training camp with a bone bruise and hamstring injuries. He registered 4 tackles in the first two regular-season games, before being placed on the injured reserve list with a toe injury on September 22.
