Rolando McClain About to Get His Walking Papers. Should We Claim Him?
 
Before someone posts about this in yet another thread let's go ahead and start a fresh thread about this

Other lesser teams have priority, say the Cowboys put a claim due to no Lee or Carter and the skins beating them. They get him, right? He'll be a hot commodity if he's cut.

Yes. Upside is high. Deal is probably friendly and we could cut him after the season with no hit if he tanks. He was really very good as a 3-4 ilb in college. He should get one more shot in NOT Oakland.

I say yes. He is young and it sounds like he will be thrilled to play somewhere else - looking to prove something. Everyone deserves a second chance and ilb is an area of need. Cant believe some other teams wont be looking to give him the same second chance though.

You'd have to know why a top first round pick was being cut in the middle of the season 2 years after he was drafted. From what I've been reading, his play has been reduced due to poor play and bad conditioning.

I'm sure many teams will put in a claim for him on waivers. Hell, even Babin had 10 teams put in a claim.

In this case I'd say yes. He's young, very talented, and the Raiders usually don't know what they're doing. Maybe being around Fletch could be the best thing that's ever happened to him.

Two really good points.

I didn't know Yolanda Mcdale so here:

Big kid!! I think if we're staying in the 3-4 bring him in, because Fletcher will mentor him like he mentored Riley and they'll be our starters (the three will rotate next two years and then McClain and Riley will go full time when London retires at 39!!). I don't see Zoe or Robinson ever getting to that level.

Big difference between college and pro. Some guys can make the adjustment and some can't. McClain has never been able to make that adjustment. No thanks.

From what everyone is saying, it seems like he would be a great add. At the same time, if that is true, I slipping past the teams ahead of us on the waiver wire.

Unless his attitude totally sucks he'd be a great addition. But yeah, our chances of actually getting him are pretty slim.

I would actually offer the Raiders a 7th round pick for the guy since he will not get to us in waivers. Only 23 years old and miscast in 43 defense. Could be worth the risk.

It would be a major miracle if we get a chance to claim him, there will be a waiting list for Rolando.
