08:04 AM ET 03.07 | Raiders fans are now inside a week before possibly finding some closure in the case of Rolando McClain. March 12 is the first date of the new fiscal year in the NFL, and all indications are that's when Raiders fans will finally get the answer to the most-asked question the last four months: "When is Oakland finally going to cut [McClain]?" The middle linebacker was suspended by the Raiders for two games last November for conduct detrimental to the team, and then didn't play in the last three games. ... McClain, the team's first-round pick in 2010, wasn't cut then only due to salary cap reasons, general manager Reggie McKenzie said in January. But now it makes sense.

Oakland just can't win. McClain was considered to be a great pick, and a lot of other teams wanted him, too. It will be interesting to see who takes a chance on him now.

Yes it will be interesting to see if his behavior is an aberration or if this guy is permanently damaged goods?

Oakland only has 5 draft choices, very little cap room and they have plenty of holes to fill both offensively and defensively. That is why I see Oakland trading down in the draft from their #3 pick so they can pick up draft choices and start rebuilding. For them it is quantity of draft picks and not quality of draft picks which is important to them. That is why I see the 49er moving up from #31 to the #3 position with Oakland so they can get a quality NT, CB, FS, or WR unless the 49ers feel that they can get another DT of the same quality at the #31 pick?

He should not be in the NFL, he should be in prison.
