The Baltimore Ravens signed free agent middle linebacker Rolando McClain this offseason in hopes the former All-American out of Alabama could help replace Ray Lewis after the future hall-of-famer retired this offseason. But an offseason arrest left many wondering if the Ravens were on the verge of cutting the troubled linebacker. Now, they won’t have to worry about that, as McClain announced today that he is retiring from the NFL.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome:
Rolando let me know that he plans to retire from the NFL. We have placed him on the reserved/retired list.
