NFL free agency is under way. Follow all of the latest rumors and signings in our free-agent tracker. More...'s Ian Rapoport reported Monday on "NFL Total Access" that McClain already has received three offers from interested teams, according to a source close to the player. Two additional teams are said to have interest.

Rapoport said the pursuit is expected to end fairly quickly. The free-agent process was fast-tracked because Pat Dye, McClain's agent, was allowed to talk to interested teams when the Oakland Raiders were attempting to trade the linebacker.

McClain was a massive headache for the Raiders, who can thank McClain for $11 million in dead money on their salary cap this season. Still, McClain is a former eighth overall draft pick who's just 23 years old. He flashed ability with the Raiders when he wasn't getting in his own way.

It won't be a surprise if the offers McClain has in hand all are cost-effective, one-year contracts with incentives. McClain has lost the benefit of the doubt, but he's going to get a second shot.
