Default Re: Rolando McClain anybody???

Rolando McClain wants off Oakland Raiders' roster

Linebacker Rolando McClain is lodged in the middle of an Oakland Raiders defense that ranks near the bottom of the NFL in most every major category. He sounds like a man who'd rather be anywhere else.

"Officially no longer an Oakland Raider!!" McClain wrote on his Facebook page Wednesday.

That flaming arrow sat in space for a few seconds before McClain clarified: "Well technically I am," he wrote. "But I'm mentally done. Just waiting on my papers."

Then: "It's out of my hands right now."

Then: "I'm gonna weigh my options. Looking forward to playing for an actual 'team.'"

Then: "I'd like to be anywhere besides here."

Ouch.

NFL Network's exhaustive Ian Rapoport first alerted us to McClain's riff before reporting that the Raiders said McClain is still on the team. The linebacker's representatives say they have not been notified. "McClain, apparently, disagrees," Rap Sheet tweeted.

Not a glowing endorsement of this year's Oakland Raiders, but it goes both ways. If he gets his wish, what team comes running after an average linebacker who airs his dirty laundry inside the walls of Mark Zuckerberg's kingdom?

Yeah, it seemed like he wanted to get out of there quite a bit. Who can blame him, though?
