Default OAK LB Rolando McClain to be waived

Height: 6-4 Weight: 259 Age: 23
Born: 7/14/1989 Athens , AL
College: Alabama
Experience: 3rd season

Christopher Hansen ‏@ChrisHansenNFL
Sounding like Rolando McClain was indeed cut.

Christopher Hansen ‏@ChrisHansenNFL
Still waiting on confirmation on McClain, but I'd expect that to be forthcoming.

Steve Corkran ‏@CorkOnTheNFL
#Raiders have not waived MLB Rolando McClain. Yet. Waiver deadline for today passed, and he was not on the list.

Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet
Then, Rolando McClain posted this: "Well technically I am. But I'm mentally done. Just waiting on my papers"

Kyle Burger ‏@kyle_burger
McClain on Facebook: "Officially no longer an Oakland Raider!!" and "I'd like to be anywhere besides here"

Christopher Hansen ‏@ChrisHansenNFL
Sounds like McClain will officially be on roster for one more day...just one.

Wow, that's really surprising. He was not a crazy pick at #8 overall in 2010. I wonder what went wrong.

As a Raider fan all I can say is good riddance. I think both McClain and Jamarcus Russell were cut from the same cloth.

Apparently off the field issues coupled with poor on the field performance.

If I'm the texans I'd take a chance on him considering we are think and could use talent in the middle of the field.

Plus, he would probably be a better fit in our 34 as opposed to a 43.

Would love to see him next to Cushing next year.

Rolando obviously is the reason he didn't work out, but Jamarcus russel?

Thats a pretty harsh comparison if accurate.

His contract is too ridiculous for the Texans to pick up right now, he'll probably have to go through waivers and I am willing to bet some other team scoops him up.

Wow, I just read that he recently got pulled in their subpackage where they only use two LBs.
I check the snap counts at FB Outsiders and Phillip Wheeler, an Ex-Colt who has never been great, got the most playing time.
McClain trailed the rookie Miles Burris by some 60 plays.
And to think Burris was one of the dark horses a few of us clamored for around draft time...

Correct - about $285K

He's also under contract for '13 (right at $4 Million) and '14 (Right at $5.8 Million), but after this season, he could be waived without any cap consequences, or we could attempt to renegotiate.

That's the idea, cheap midseason rental player. If he sucks cut him, if he's great then renegotiate his contract or cut him. I doubt he clears waivers all the way down to us and doubt the Texans would be willing to bring in this type of team cancer to the locker room. It's sad, I really thought this guy was going to have a great career, got Aaron Curry wrong as well.

If I were you guys I'd be hoping and praying the Texans DON'T go after McClain. You guys have a great defense in Houston, this waste of a pick will do nothing but harm to your team.

Default Re: OAK LB Rolando McClain to be waived

https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...mlb-moving-on/

Some of above:
Against the run, while the numbers are solid, they don’t tell the whole story. He’s currently seventh in the league in Run Stop Percentage at 11.4 percent and tied for 11th with 27 stops. There’s nothing wrong with those figures, but when we look at the film, a lot of his plays are made as the unblocked defender. He does a nice job of sifting through traffic and finding the ball, but he’s struggled when offensive linemen get their hands on him. When the scheme puts him in position to make a play, he can get there, but he hasn’t made many plays while working off blocks since his strong Week 1 game against the San Diego Chargers.

Another positive for McClain is his tackling as he ranks ninth among inside linebackers this year with a Tackling Efficiency of 21.0. He’s only missed one tackle in the running game, so as to the previous point, when he’s put in position to make a play.

was arrested last December and originally sentenced to spend 180 days in jail after an alleged shooting incident, but those charges were later dropped.


Can any one post link to his behavior other than the gun incident with charges dropped? I can't find anything but "other incidents."
