Rolando McClain RETIRES FROM NFL

By Jeff Zrebiec, The Baltimore Sun

1:27 PM EDT, May 15, 2013

A little more than a month after signing with the Ravens, troubled inside linebacker Rolando McClain has informed the team that he will retire from the NFL.

“Rolando let me know that he plans to retire from the NFL,” Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome announced today. “We have placed him on the reserved/retired list.”

McClain, who was taken eighth overall by the Oakland Raiders in the 2010 draft, is just 23 years old but off-the-field issues have marred his NFL career. Released by the Raiders earlier this offseason, McClain was arrested April 21 in Decatur, Ala., just 10 days after he signed with the Ravens, a team willing to give him another shot.

His third arrest in a little over 16 months, McClain was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He allegedly yelled an expletive at police officers after they responded to a disturbance at Pines Park.

McClain was released from jail after posting a $1,000 bond.

Newsome had been noncommittal about McClain’s status on the team, saying only that the decision was a process that the front office was working its way through. The Ravens did trade up in the second round and select Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown, which some took as an indication that the Ravens were ready to move on from McClain.

However, the linebacker’s retirement takes the decision out of the team’s hands. McClain officially signed a one-year, $700,000 deal on April 12 after he met with Newsome and Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. The deal included incentives but no signing bonus, so McClain’s retirement doesn’t cost the Ravens anything.

For McClain, a former standout at Alabama, he retires with 274 career tackles, 6 sacks, one interception and one forced fumble in 41 career games with the Raiders.

With the retirement of Ray Lewis, the free-agent departure of Dannell Ellerbe and the release of Brendon Ayanbadejo, the Ravens are relatively thin at middle linebacker. Jameel McClain, the most experienced holdover at the position, is also still rehabbing a serious spinal cord injury.

It's probably in his best interest to do this. With fame and money comes the leeches and problems. His situation in Decatur when he goes home all because he is an NFL player is keeping him from being able to live his life.

Damn shame that it's come to this.
