Will the Ravens retain Rolando McClain after latest arrest?


08:18 PM ET 04.22 | Rolando McClain is back at it again, folks. The former Raiders linebacker was arrested for the third time in two years in his hometown of Decatur, Ala. Police tell WHNT, the local news station, that McClain was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after an incident at Pines Park. According to eyewitnesses, McClain and a group of people were ordered by police to leave the park, but he refused to do so and started cursing at the officers. That's when he was taken into custody and released on bond a short time later. In January of this year, McClain was arrested for a window-tint violation and providing a false name to police. After being waived by the Raiders this offseason, McClain signed a one-year deal worth $700,000 with the Baltimore Ravens but that might not be a deal that lasts much longer after McClain's latest legal run-in.

Sometimes you just shouldn't go home...even if you can.

Good luck with that, Ravens.

This guy is an idiot.

I didn't know this idiot got in trouble with guns a few times in the past too.... He'll fit right in Baltimore.

Guess they don't like their native son in Decatur. Wouldn't leave a park, window tint violation? These sound like very serious crimes to me. Wonder if he stuffed the arresting officer a few times when they were both playing high school ball? Time to move.

Why is he hanging out in a park?

Only if he fires them

I said it last week when the Ravens signed him -- the best thing they could do for Rolando is to make sure he stays away from Decatur. Every time he goes back there, he gets into trouble (or trouble manages to find him; either way it's bad news).

What an ****!

If he can't go more than two weeks after being signed to get arrested again, how many times will he be arrested before training camp starts???

I put the over/under at 5.

This guy is an idiot.

Yes, but it sounds like he's a good fit for the gang at Murderers & Thugs Stadium ...

April 23, 2013  09:41 AM ET

What an ****!

And a **** to boot ...

To quote the esteemed Texas philosopher Ron "Tater" White....You can't fix stupid".

April 23, 2013  02:45 PM ET

Being an Ala fan I was hoping he would turn his career around. I guess you just can't fix stupid

Question: if you wanted to be a thug and punk, why would you cause trouble in your _hometown_ of all places?
