Raiders released him ... Him and Timmons would sure up our ILB for years ... and would take a semi need off the draft board ..


buttttttttt he is a knuckle head and comes with Baggage .... I would sign him though, in a heart beat... let him play special teams and learn how a real team operates ... then bring him back next year if shows he's hungry

Very Low Risk , Very High Reward to me

Either he's really bad and couldn't even play for Oakland or he had disciplinary issues and they let him go. He's already bashing Oakland on his way out (looking forward to playing for an actual team). If I was interviewing someone that had that attitude that he'd bashed his previous company on the way out, I'd be inclined to pass.

Either way, I'd tread carefully.

Idk a whole lot about him but it seems a little risky too me. The last thing we need is a guy with a ton of baggage....regardless of his talent level.

Yeah that's the thing ... he has a lot of baggage / attitude ... but not saying he'd play day 1 ... let him play this year out on ST (not like we couldn't use ST help)... and monitor him and show him what being a professional means with our veterans ... then bring him back next year if he's solid ...

and if he messes up ... you just Cut him ... clean hands ...

yeah that's right the steelers suck lol

even though some fans think it fills a need the team will not sign him because i sense that the coaching staff and ownership don't think we are thin at linebacker

I don't know yea i know we don't go after guys with probs and all that, but i think if we interview him. Tell him get your act together and tell him if he says one dumb thing or messes up he's gone, But id sign him.

Sign him to a small deal, I think a change of scenary and a real defensive cord would do him wonders. We put up with Farrior for a couple years to long, why not givr the kid a shot? I mean seriously.

He's doing that because he's on the Raiders. Just like Corey Dillon did what he was doing because he was with the Bengals. How did Dillion do with the Patriots?

Losing organizations breed contempt. We should kick his tires and see what he's got. Can't hurt.

He is to be released today. I'd be all for signing him to a small deal laced with incentives. You keep your head on straight, do your job, and you get paid.

No problem. He isn't going to jail because of his assault charges. They were dropped. Cheap pick up too.

Nevermind...raiders suspended him 2 games

@AdamSchefter: Raiders HC Dennis Allen announced that he has suspended linebacker Rolando McClain two games for conduct detrimental to the team.
