The Baltimore Ravens gave linebacker Rolando McClain a second chance when the Oakland Raiders cut him last year and they decided to pick him up. But McClain didn’t last long in Baltimore before retiring to focus on getting healthy mentally and cleaning up his act off the field.
Now that McClain has seemingly done that, he’s ready to return to the NFL and is meeting with the Baltimore Ravens in the coming days to discuses his future.
He has yet to make any formal announcement regarding his plans to play this season. “Nothing is set in stone,” he says. But he expects to meet with Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome Friday to discuss a possible future with Baltimore while Newsome is in Alabama.
We knew that McClain was going to attempt a comeback and try to play football in 2014, but he’ll need to formally reinstate himself and that means paperwork. At the moment, McClain has been all talk and no paperwork which means he’s not yet reinstated.
But he’s still starting to test the waters to see what a comeback might look like and if he’s in a healthy place off the field than more power to him in truing to come back on it.
