Rolando McClain wants to return to the NFL, but considering his background and the Ravens' recent string of arrests, it would be best for his return to be with a different team, Jamison Hensley writes. Story
McClain, the No. 8 overall pick in the 2010 draft by the Oakland Raiders, has been working out and spreading the word that he plans to play in the NFL next season, according to a report by the Carroll County Times.
The Raiders released McClain on April 5, 2013, after a series of off-field issues, including a shooting incident in December, 2011 that led to four misdemeanor charges. The charges were later dropped after McClain and the victim reached a financial settlement.
McClain signed with the Baltimore Ravens five days after being released by Oakland, but retired nearly a month later, stating he wanted "to focus on getting my personal life together."
The Ravens still retain the rights for the 24-year-old former Alabama standout. In 41 games over three seasons with Oakland, McClain tallied 246 tackles and 6.5 sacks.
