NFL Free Agency: Former Raiders LB Rolando McClain Has 3 Offers, Multiple Teams Interested

Rolando McClain may not be out of a job for long.

The former Raiders linebacker has three offers on the table, and two other teams interested, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. 

ProFootballTalk reports that “multiple teams” are interested in McClain, who was cut by the Raiders and officially became a free agent on Monday after being uncclaimed.

The eighth pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, McClain was once touted as the future centerpiece of the Raiders’ defense. To say the least, he has failed to reach up to those expectations. His career stats are rather unimpressive: 173 tackles, 6.5 sacks, and one interception in three full seasons.

“I’d like to thank the Raiders for giving me an opportunity to play in the NFL,” McClain said in a statement. “I’m disappointed that it hasn’t worked out better, but I’m very excited and thankful for the Raiders allowing me to get a fresh start. I will miss my teammates and wish them and the Raiders organization good luck going forward.”

Off the field, McClain has been involved in several incidents. He was arrested last November for allegedly threatening to kill a man and firing a gun beside the man’s ear in Alabama. Last January, a car that McClain was driving was shot at, but nobody was hurt.

Bottom line, nobody will disappointed that he has left Raiders for good.
