Rolando McClain is going to be released by the Raiders. It says he has had issues with the coaching staff. I liked McClain coming out in the draft that year, he could be the answer opposite of Washington. Thoughts........

The conservative fans will say no but we should definitely kick the tires.

um lets see here. he is a young stud of a linebacker who has shown he can be dominate at the nfl level.

dont care about any of the other crap. im sure he will be fine character wise and his health hasnt really been a facttor. Claim him and pair him next to d-wash. in my opinion you do it and do not hesitate.

8th Pick Overall

Think he has some talent, might be a tool, alot of people under 25 are, some even grow out of it.

Him and DW in the middle, that solves many a problem.

I would not mind bringing him in to see what he can do, but from all I have heard from Raider fans is that he is terrible in coverage and undisciplined in the running game, often plays the wrong gap and gets exposed for big gains.

Where has he ever shown he can be anything close to dominant at the NFL level?

I take a shot and bring him in. We seem to have good LB coach and he might be able to help Rolando McClain reach is potential.

Next to D-Wash instead of Lenon, huh? Can he call the D?

washington is going to be a captain and argubally the leader of this defense for the next decade. he needs to learn and be calling the plays.

I wonder if the staff has already tried getting him ready and if so, how much success they were having.

Way I see it is he should be an upgrade over Bradley and Walker, should be Lenon as well

Whoa what? Nevermind the off field stuff, in what world is this statement true?

I don't how of a single "young stud" that only plays 2 downs.

He is not the player he was suppose to be. If you read his college scouting report, you see things like "team leader" and "high football IQ"...which has not been the case so far. the exact opposite is true actually.

we do need a thumper, and Rolondo McClain might be able to help us there. But we would not be signing a top ten pick. We would be adding a two down LBer, who has some durability concerns, and some major major personality concerns.

I would not be against signing him by any means because I was such a fan of this guy at Alabama. But I don't exactly have high expectations for the guy.

I agree with every word of this post, 100%.

I would rather see Reggie Walker play more before trying to add someone.
