Rolando McClain to Ravens
 
I like the moves they made. They lost guys but quietly replenished

Rolando McClain, rumored to #Ravens, is only 23 years old. 2009 Butkus Award winner. Was @PFF's No. 7 run-defending ILB in football last yr.

Makes sense: Rolando McClain, Oakland's former first-round pick, starred at Alabama, the alma mater of Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome.

Pro Football Focus also charted Rolando McClain with just 3 missed tackles in 2012, 3rd fewest among ILBs with 500+ snaps. 2-down thumper.

I was about to post this. This could be a good move for McClain if he can put his demons behind him. McClain has talent and if he can harness it in Baltimore and keeps his nose clean I think he'll be a good fit and allow the Ravens to keep Courtney Upshaw on the outside where I think he's a better fit.

Would have been a perfect fit here next to Cushing.

We'll see how it works out...

Ray Lewis will personally get involved in saving this young man's career by mentoring him and doing that dance of his as often as it takes to motivate him. This will of course mean that Lewis will need to be on the Ravens staff in some capacity and keep him on the sidelines for to foreseeable future.

Lets face it. He's never going to go away and to make matters worse Rolando McCain who is a turd in every possible way you could describe one (probably got a peanut sticking out the side of his head) will finally live up to his potential and become an All Pro for the Ravens.

Schaub says McClain is not Texans worthy.

I would really love for that to happen but I've read a few places that Lewis is going into broadcasting. I'm not sure for who though. I'd much rather see him stick with the Ravens in some capacity than to wind up on the NFLN. That would be close to the proverbial straw for me to have Ray Lewis and Michale Irvin on the same set at the same time. Both talk too much just to hear themselves talk.

Both great players in their time but on a personal level I can't stand either one of 'em. I can't get to the mute or FF buttons quickly enough.

*(Looked like corn to me)* :truck:

I think Ray Lewis has already signed a contract to be on ESPN.

There is a reason he is called SloRo. Kind of hard to miss a tackle when you're trailing the play. With that said, word is he told the Raiders not to draft him, so I suspect he felt he didn't need to try with them. You may see a different Rolando in Baltimore . . . then again, maybe not.

That is why I like it. They won't pay him a ton and overall they seem to get the best out these guys. Even with a 2 down guy if he is making tackles, that fills some of the void. It was like Ray Ray was all over the place at the end.

I guess Ozzie Newsome, a Bama alum, thinks he knows something about McClain that everyone else doesn't. Good luck with that. He's been bad news since he entered the league.

Given Ozzie Newsome's track record, I'd give him the benefit of the doubt.

The Ravens manage their cap/team as well as any team in the NFL. Giants/Seattle etc.... They do it with a mixture of bringing in FA's and hitting on about 60/75% of the draft picks. Newsome knows he can find SEC sleepers late in the draft due to his Alabama roots. Dont be suprised to see guys like LaVar Edwards,Rico Johnson etc.... become Ravens in the 4-6th rd.
