Stewart Bradley is supposedly really strong against the run as a 2-down LB, and he NEVER sees the field.

No chance we bring him in.

This would be an awful signing. Other than the Cards, I watch the Raiders the next most and this kid is awful. No way should we sign him. The kid's stupid

Greg Cosell on Rolando McClain:

"Awful...arguably the worst starting 4-3 middle linebacker in the NFL. He can't move".

Aaron Curry and McClain were both well rounded, leaders, had great size, and were very safe prospects.


Kinda makes you think twice about selecting Te'o really high...

Didnt curry play 4-3 at Wake or Georgia Tech, whatever one it was?

McClain looked good cause those DL in front of him, kept blockers off him all day.

Dont know how McClain would fair in 3-4 NFL defense though, Bama ran a hybrid in those days, they are pure 3-4 now.

Curry had lots of knee problems too, dont forget that.

"Curry had lots of knee problems too, dont forget that."

At the end of this past season with the Oakland Raiders, an aching Rolando McClain gave an assignment to his agent: Find out more about stem cell therapies for injuries, like other athletes are trying.

“I’ve been having two seasons of nagging pain in my knee,” the former University of Alabama standout said.

Not long afterward, McClain was on his way to Gulf Shores. There, radiologist Jason R. Williams performed liposuction on McClain and then injected stem cells from the linebacker’s own fat cells into his knee and into the area of a high ankle sprain.

He's also missed games due to toe and ankle injuries, plus a concussion.

He's not being released, only suspended.

It's starting to look like McClain really has played his last down as a Raider. Jay Glazer said:

"Players there, they're telling me this has been an ongoing problem with Rolando McClain," Glazer reported Sunday. "The tipping point was last week. Somebody asked him, 'Do you even care?' He said, 'I've got four million reasons not to care.'"

I don't want to touch that with a 10 foot pole.

Plain and simple
