Could be released by the Raiders?

If so I'd strongly hope the Steelers try to claim him off of waivers. He'd be a amazing replacement for Foote.

There are certain players you just have to give a chance. The Raiders are a train wreck right now. Can't really make a solid judgement on anybody being released or cut from the Raiders right now. Plus I remember Tomlin going to Alabama's pro day. I mean there was a lot of pundits saying the Steelers were there for Cody, but McClain had to intrigue the Steelers.

I doubt the Steelers pick him up, but I wish they would.

If the steelers are that desperate, they will.

Not many experienced 3-4 inside linebackers available those day.

Worse scenario, he remain the same guy.

Best scenario, he turns into earl holmes 2.0.

My friend and I were just having this discussion. I know he's had run ins with the law but so had Ta'Amu, Ben, most recently Plax, ect.....He'd be great to bring in as a back up now a let him compete next year with Foote. Its be a great competition between the two and McClain is still young so there's still potential there. Low risk, High Reward. Id put in a claim for him. Couldnt hurt.

Honestly couldn't hurt. I wouldn't mind seeing what he has to offer. Maybe a different surrounding is what he needs.

Love this guy, but I can't see him making it down to where we have a shot at him sadly.

I think once he clears waivers he's pick up just like any other veteran and the Steelers I don't think would be responsible for the remainder of his contract.

Pretty much a 2 down thumper but I think he would compliment Timmons well.

Doubt he makes it to us through waivers...

But another top 10 pick wasted by Oakland.

Good news is we're higher on the waiver priority list than usual. Mad

Let's be honest; we need young, future LB's. This is Oakland we're talking about. They are 10 years into a "depression" stage of the franchise and only going backwards at this point.

I question his character quite a bit, but if things truly aren't what they reportedly were; I'd definitely want to grab him while he's available.

Id definitely check him out.

Was a fan of his coming out. From what Ive seen of him, I dont think he will ever be as good as I thought he would be coming out, but I still think he could be decent....at least at Larry Foote's level.....with the right coaching.

I'd say he's absolutely worth taking a chance on. Someone else is going to get him long before us, though.
