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.

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.

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

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.

Cue, yet again, the "the Texans need to sign this guy who couldn't cut it on a much worse defense" comments.

Default Re: OAK LB Rolando McClain to be waived

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...

Wow.

I remember congratulating some Raider friends of mine when they drafted him. I expected him to be a really good player for a really long time.

Default Rolando McClain?

Cheap tryout for the rest of the year. Maybe with our leaders he could turn it around.

McClain has dealt with injuries and an assault arrest in 2011. He was sentenced to jail time initially, but the charges were subsequently dropped. Those transgressions would have been ignored if he performed on the field, but McClain has struggled in pass coverage and too often giving up big plays as a run defender because he guesses wrong. His playing time was reduced halfway through this season. Still, he's shown flashes of being a solid playmaker against the run at times in his career.
Drop DeMeco Ryans to pick up McClain... It's all going as planned.

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.
