Raiders Will Cut 2010 8th Overall Pick Rolando McClain
 
Quote:

Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain has been informed by the team that he will be released on Thursday, according to a source.

McClain, the eighth overall pick in the 2010 draft, was held out of practice Wednesday because of an undisclosed team-related issue.

Coach Dennis Allen would give no more information about why he held McClain out. Allen said he did not know if McClain would practice Thursday.

McClain reportedly wrote on his Facebook page he no longer was a Raider, then deleted the post.

McClain has struggled under Oakland's new coaching staff, and has had his playing time sharply reduced in recent weeks. McClain's best year with the Raiders came in 2011, when he registered 99 tackles and five sacks.

Information from senior NFL writer John Clayton and The Associated Press was used in this report.

Pretty surprising. I'm sure lots of teams will want him.

McFadden even starting to look like a bust, he will neber play a whole year.


Raiders just can't get a draft pick to work out for them.

Or this new regime/coaching staff seems incompetent (I don't think Dennis Allen is cut out for the job, but I guess we need more time to see). This team had more promise & talent under Hue Jackson.

Marcel Reece has had a couple decent games, but this team is one dimensional.

I agree it was a big mistake firing Hue just to put your (new gm) stamp on the team from the head on down, but Rolando is flat out not worth the 4 mil plus he'd be getting next year and the millions more he would be due. Out of shape, mentally not in it and just not as good as the scrubs behind him. Maybe a change of scenery will restart his motor.

For where he was drafted he def has been so far...he hasn't played a full season yet.

Hell he wasn't even that great this year when healthy...

If he keeps getting injured every year then sure....but the guy is 25. He still has 5 prime years left.

Busts dont go for 1750 rushing yards on a 5.25 average...and 650 more recieveing yards in the 20 games he played in through 2010 and 2011. He was a beast when he played.

His talent is off the charts.

If he keeps getting injured?...IT'S BEEN 5 YEARS NOW!

you had to combine 2 different years and 20 games to get that :oldlol:

What you just listed is what Peterson will do this year alone, on an offense that is just as bad if not worse.

And he should be putting up Peterson numbers, he was drafted #4 overall

McFadden has yet to make a single probowl

he has had ONE year where he rushed 1,000+

in 5 years he has yet to play over 13 games...his typical year is starting around 7-8 games

Woa.
Was the 'can't miss' LB of that draft, such a monster on that '09 'Bama defense.
Almost makes you think twice about Te'o, however I do believe he's a much better character and won't have
the off the field issue(s).

I think nobody who was involved in drafting him is still left on that Raiders team and his contract is pretty loaded for the next 2 years with 4mil and almost 6mil.
Haven't watched almost any Raiders football, so I couldn't tell if he has produced enough or not, but apparently to the team, it's a definitive nope.
