Rolando McClain anyone?

Just saw that he was going to be released by the Raiders. Maybe a change of scenery would do him good. Definitely would provide good depth.

Really? He's playing we'll for them...

I'm not sure we really have a place for him as he is exclusively a MLB and can struggle in pass coverage.

I could be wrong but didn't we just draft a linebacker #9 overall?

He's trash with a bunch of off the field woes.

The most recent example was in a 34-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, when McClain failed to fill his gap and seemed to willingly engage with an offensive lineman as running back BenJarvis Green-Ellis raced past him and ran 48 yards to the 1-yard line.

just compiling tackles doesn't mean you're doing a good job as a linebacker.

That, and we don't need ANOTHER MLB. As far as I remember from the pre-Draft stuff that year, he was pretty limited to MLB.
