Ravens, Rolando McClain Near Deal (http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/9155072/baltimore-ravens-deal-rolando-mcclain-source)

Former Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain is nearing a deal with the Baltimore Ravens, according to a league source.

The two sides are scheduled to talk again Wednesday to see if they can iron out unresolved issues to complete a deal.

McClain, Oakland's former first-round pick, starred at Alabama, the alma mater of Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome.

McClain would become the second player cut by the Raiders this offseason to sign with the Super Bowl champion Ravens. Safety Michael Huff signed with Baltimore last month.

McClain last week became the third player drafted in the top 10 by late owner Al Davis to be let go so far this offseason by second-year Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie. Huff (seventh pick in 2006) and receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (seventh pick in '09) were cut last month.

McClain had a rough final campaign in Oakland, serving a two-game suspension last season for conduct detrimental to the team. He also was demoted from the starting lineup a month into the season because of his struggles in pass coverage and because Raiders coaches believed he tired too much playing every down.

Dream Team!
