The Cowboys made a bit of a surprising move at the beginning of this month, trading for Ravens linebacker Rolando McClain, the former first-round pick for the Raiders who has had a tough time lately deciding whether he wants to play or retire.

Now, it sounds like McClain won't get to immediately join his new teammates.

That's because a judge in Decatur, Alabama on Tuesday declined the motion from McClain's attorneys to delay his trial on charges of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Training camp for Dallas starts on Thursday, and McClain's trial is set for Friday.
