Can't imagine him doing anything of note there, just like here. Forget attitude, age, off field issues - the guy just was not a good football player. He could transform into Mother Theresa, but he still won't be able to find and tackle the runner. Raven fans will learn to see what we saw.
Im glad he is gone, but Im not gonna say that he doesn't have a chance to be better with the Ravens than he did with us.


+1 He had only a few good games for us, but going to the Ravens 3-4 D behind their D-Line should help him out a lot.

If I am the Ravens I draft Alec Ogletree to pair with him if he makes it that far.

Help him do what though? He is still going to meet blockers, and their dline wont help him guess better or wrap better.

Guy didn't make a single impact play in his time here. It's an instinctual trait that won't change. He may become solid, he may become a contributor, but he will never on any team be an impact player worthy of his draft slot. So whatever, guys described as solid contributors can be signed freely in every free agency period.

It would be hilarious if the Ravens took Te'o after signing McClain. Laughing

Knew he was gonna sign with Baltimore. The ILB draft class sucks this year and they don't want Te'o.

Everybody on here was saying Harbaugh would want no part of his off the field issues.

I called him going there before Ray announced he was gonna retire.

Laughing Dude don't bruise yourself from patting yourself on the back too hard. Everyone had him pegged to Baltimore.

Ravens signed ILB Rolando McClain, formerly of the Raiders, to a one-year, $700,000 contract.

Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the deal also includes playing-time incentives. It's a minimum commitment from the Ravens, but one that could pay off nicely if McClain emerges as a starter in training camp. There's a decent chance he will, but McClain is strictly a two-down 'backer. He's been poor in coverage since being the No. 8 pick of the 2010 draft. The Ravens should remain on the prowl for help at inside linebacker after losing Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe. Although he won't turn 24 until July, this could be McClain's last chance after he proved to be a massive headache in Oakland.


He won't get past preseason good luck in the CFL Wink
