McClain on the other hand is playing like hot garbage. Yes he is more talented then our guys but his level of play isn't so there is no upside. I do trust JDR and Fox and would support them if they felt they could salvage his career. I just won't hold my breath though.
We play a different system from last year to this year, and I think this year's system is better suited for someone like McClain. Same thing could be effecting McClain, it's not like he didn't play well at all.

I mean the guy is 23 years old... came into the league at 21 into an organization like the Raiders... not very great things can happen when you're surrounded in that type of environment.

Elway puts a high grade on character and attitude so you're right, probably should hold my breath but I do think Elway will look deeply into this.

And this cut won't happen until next week so there's time to make some phone calls.

and even if Broncos do put in a claim, there's no guarantee he's falling to us.

I wouldn't claim him with that contract but I'd think hard about signing him if he clears.

If he clears wavers thus his contract is voided this is one time I'd say, "bring him in for a look".

We have a roster spot (cut the security blanket full back) and that is our position of greatest need. Besides it would be great to get a good MLB at the expense of Oakland.

If JDR and Fox want him, then bring him in. I absolutely trust them when it comes to our defense.

I don't think anyone claims him off waivers with that contract. So we will probably have an opportunity to pick him up if we want.

Wonder if there's an attitude issue?
he is a ****ing moron. that's the issue and the Raiders are actually trying to fix their public image.

The Raiders were terrible in the last Raiders Broncos game, hell they've been terrible for 10 years.

I'm all for bringing him in and hoping they do. Or he'll end up on the Patriots, which I dont want to see happen. The guy is very talented, and with coaches like JDR and Fox who specialize in defense, and are group of players, I'm sure he'll turn his young career around.
Hell, the Peyton Manning effect alone might do it.

Think about it, if it pays off. We sure up the MLB position which could pay huge dividends in the playoffs this year, and we can address other positions of need in the draft. Bring him in

Raiders MLB Rolando McClain had his misdemeanor assault charges in Alabama dropped.McClain was sentenced to six months in jail after the May incident, but now he faces no jail time and is in no danger of being suspended by the NFL. McClain has been solid in run defense this season but has lost snaps to WLB Miles Burris in passing situations. Nov 18 - 11:04 AM

I was leaning towards Thomas or Bryant at WR, Gronkowski if they went TE, Haden if they went CB, and Eric Berry or Earl Thomas if they went S, if memory serves me right....but honestly don't ever recall mentioning McClain as being someone I wanted the Broncos to draft in 1st round.

I wouldn't be happy about picking through raider trash but if the staff sees something in him they can work with and he isn't an IHOP type cap hit then I wouldn't be pissed if they took a flyer and signed him.

I don't know that we would get a chance, there are plenty other desperate teams out there Hell look how quick the jags picked up Babbin.

He's trouble cos he went to the Raiders. Don't blame him for wanting no part of that cascade of ****. Not only that but no team is as immersed in Gangland BS culture as the Fade. Guarantee if he lands on a real team the difference is night and day. Think he pulls this crap on Belicheat?

New Orleans bound. They've no problems with bad boys with talent, they'd be the first good team he'd get to and he'd behave. And by behave, i mean willingly aim for a players knees for a 10,000 dollar pay out.

Many people thought he was great fit for the 3-4 we were running. We don't run a 3-4 anymore.

I think we would only be liable for his base this year, pro-rated.

http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/oakland-r...lando-mcclain/

If so its something less than 300K for this year. That alone is worth it for the Raider game insight. If he doesnt work out, cut him at the end of the year. If he does, make him rework his contract next year (6.675).

His major roster bonus of $12M has already been paid.
