Default Rolando McClain can't finish workout with Ravens

On one hand, the 24-year-old linebacker's comeback attempt likely won't be saddled by the Ravens' holding onto his rights. On the other, it's unlikely anyone will sign him.

Former Raiders first round draft pick Rolando McClain signed last year with the Baltimore Ravens, and promptly retired from the league after finding himself in legal hot water.

He made his first steps in a comeback effort today, all starting with a workout with the team for whom he has yet to play.

It seems like those are the only steps of a football variety McClain has taken recently.

NFL.com reported McClain "bombed his workout," failing to finish the conditioning tests and not even taking part in position drills. He even showed up late, according to the report.

Perhaps it was one of those workouts he meant to cancel, like Kelvin Benjamin allegedly did. In McClain's case, that would almost assuredly seal his release if the team was on the hook to pay him anything this year. He's on the team's reserve-retired list, meaning any entry back into the league would have to be with the Ravens, or after the Ravens would release him.

Based on this report, everyone in Pittsburgh is pulling for the Ravens to give him the starting job.

Yeah, but how did he do in the knife wielding and woman uppercutting drills? The Ravens love their "special skill-set" players.

You also forgot about car-dragging and bleach-pouring:

Terrell Sugss' Girlfriend Claims He Punched Her In Neck

Quote:
We now have more details about the domestic case that prompted Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs to surrender his gun collection to authorities. It's not pretty.

According to the domestic complaint obtained Friday by The Baltimore Sun, Suggs' longtime girlfriend, Candace Williams, claimed the All-Pro punched her in the neck and dragged her alongside a speeding car with their two children in the vehicle. The woman said she suffered "severe road rash" as a result of the incident.

As is standard protocol in the wake of a complaint of this nature, Suggs was ordered to turn over any firearms in his possession. The Sun reported he turned over seven guns. WBAL-TV reported Suggs surrendered nine.

Suggs does not face criminal charges stemming from the September incident. The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year issued a statement Friday addressing the issue.

"My fiance and I have two beautiful children together whom we both love and care for tremendously," the statement read. "The personal issues that the two of us have faced recently have been addressed in a responsible and adult manner and have been resolved. I am certain that we will get through this matter and move forward as a happy family."

In December 2009, Williams alleged Suggs held her down on the floor, poured bleach on her and their son and kicked her in the face, breaking her nose, according to The Sun. Williams also claimed physical abuse dating to the start of their relationship in 2007.

Williams was granted a protective order as a result of those 2009 claims, The Sun reported. It later was rescinded after the couple reconciled and Williams dropped a $70 million lawsuit against Suggs.

@JonM229

I guess the DUI obstacle course and security guard wrestling drills should be included as well.

It's really hard to keep track of all of the criminals on your team.

They just need to start marketing orange jumpsuit home alternative uniforms for them already. I'm just not sure how easily visible their new numbers will be on them from the guard towers.... er... press box.

The first reported domestic assault is when a Raven is taking the relationship to the next level - wedding bells presumably will soon be ringing for Ms. Williams and Suggs

Suggs must be stalling. That story is from a couple years ago I believe. He's probably just stringing her along waiting for the statute of limitations to expire.

Yikes. It's always tough to see a kid fall that far from grace. One of the best Inside Linebacker prospects of the last decade gone completely to shit because of bad decision after bad decision.
