    Rolando McClain

    I saw a report yesterday that the Oakland Raiders have given McClain permission to seek a trade, and if he can't attract one, that he will be released.

    Now I know McClain is a head case, but as I recall he was a very talented prospect out of Alabama. I am guessing this guy could be had for a 7th round pick. The Raiders don't want him. Might be worth a shot to have him play behind Foote and see if he has the common sense to keep his head straight.

    Thoughts?

    This was discussed in an earlier thread, but I say give him a sit down and physical at least. No harm in that.

    Rolando McClain

    He's worth a shot. And if we could get him for a 7th round that wouldn't be bad. Worse case scenario he screws up we cut him and we only lost a 7th round pick.

    Raiders are dumping due to horrible cap management and massive over payments to players over the last 6 years....not that van dyke was particularly good but we gave him a shot. Mcclain, Huff, and DHB are all decent players that would fit well with us and all start over guys like sanders/cotchery, foote, and whoever is backing up troy when hes put on IR...that and hes significantly better than ryan clark, how do people not get that? lol

    The offense has gaping holes at RB, WR, TE but the defense has a gaping hole at OLB and just about every single (except timmons) other position on defense could use a slight to significant upgrade or get younger. The defensive unit holds it together pretty well, but if one or two players could be permanently upgraded they may go back to being really good and not just good on the stat sheet. Seems like its the same guys year after year and when draft picks like lewis move on and other guys that were drafted cant step up, maybe its time to go get some young guys that werent good fits on other teams like mcclain, who would be much better in a 34.


    The thought of mcclain over foote, is a big upgrade even if its just a little upgrade


    Another guy, not as high profile would be Alex Carrington, hes a horrible fit for buffalo at DE and he cant get time at DT with dareus and kyle williams there.
