The terms of the Ravens' July trade of middle linebacker Rolando McClain to the Dallas Cowboys have been finalized now that the regular season is over.

Because McClain played more than half of the Cowboys' defensive snaps, the Ravens will receive Dallas' sixth-round draft pick in the 2015 NFL draft. The Cowboys get the Ravens' seventh-round draft pick.

McClain played 606 of the Cowboys' 978 defensive snaps, 61.9 percent of the playing time.

A former consensus All-American and Butkus Award winner from Alabama, McClain never played or practiced for the Ravens after being signed in 2013 and then retiring after he was arrested for disorderly conduct. He worked out for the Ravens last year and was activated from the reserve-retired list before retiring again and then being traded to the Cowboys.

This season, McClain finished second on the Cowboys with 81 tackles as he also recorded one sack, one forced fumble and two interceptions.
