Rolando McClain still might be cut by Baltimore Ravens


As it turns out, trouble-prone linebacker Rolando McClain might not be long for the Baltimore Ravens' roster after all.

Although Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta said Monday night that McClain deserves a "second chance,"'s Ian Rapoport has been told those comments referred more to the original signing as opposed to the linebacker's most recent arrest.

Per Rapoport, the Ravens have not made a decision on McClain, and there's still a "real chance" the team ends up moving on before the linebacker ever plays a snap for Baltimore.

McClain's one-year, $700,000 contract contains no guarantees, so the Ravens can cut ties with the linebacker at any point.

If the Ravens are waiting for the legal process to play out, the next key date is July 9, when McClain is scheduled to go to court to face disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges. Until then, the team is sending a message that McClain can't rest easily nor take his roster spot for granted.
