    The Baltimore Ravens and linebacker Rolando McClain are close to deal, sources told NFL.com's Albert Breer on Wednesday.

    McClain was the No. 8 overall pick in 2010, but was recently cut by the Oakland Raiders . He had 99 tackles and five sacks in 2011, but never quite fit with the Raiders . McClain's strength has always been against the run, but off-the-field issues certainly played a role in his release .

    McClain still has a ton of potential at 23 years old and the Ravens don't have a penciled in replacement for Ray Lewis. Defensive coordinator Dean Pees recently talked about moving Courtney Upshaw inside .

    This could be the chance for McClain to get his career back on track.
    F*cking knew it. Watch him turn in to a stud these next few years.

    So let me get this right, we were 8-8 with a full staff of starters last season. Now without some keys starters and no replacements in place we're expected to be better then an 8-8 team? Overreaction, NO, reality YES!

    Let's see what the second wave of free agency brings after the draft. THEN...we can make our predictions. But I'm right in line with you as of now Latrobe.

    "Full staff of starters? " Did you bother to watch any of last season at all? We were down to starting our 4th and 5th corners at one point, for Christ's sake.

    And that's who's fault? They draft duds and put even bigger duds on the PS.

    Wow tomlin really didnt like him anymore...

    Rolando McClain didn't live up to expectations with the Oakland Raiders. Now, he'll try to replace a legend in Baltimore.

    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the Ravens have agreed to a contract with linebacker Rolando McClain. The one-year contract is worth $700,000 with incentives. McClain would be line to step into Ray Lewis' former role.

    McClain will be in Baltimore on Friday to take a physical and meet with coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome, who will speak to McClain about the expectations they have for the former first-round draft pick who flamed out with the Raiders.

    Don't worry Colbert is getting his dart board out and ready for the draft. Word is he has been practicing darts on his son's Nintendo WII all off season. Sources around Colbert say he expects this draft to be even more special.
