We will look back on this move and say. RM and DA really ******* this team up when Ro is an all pro with that Pats
Or will we say RM and DA cleaned house and turned us into SB contenders!
Either way a gutsy move!
Time will tell !!
one more down.... keep the chopping block out - i dont know what we are waiting on, clearly more cuts need to be made it would be better sooner than later.
Well It will not be for Babin he signed with the Jags. I still agree with the release though it would be nice to maybe use him as traif bait for the draft.
I was a big Ro supporter and I have his jersey. But now, I want him off this team!
Good deal for DA. Maybe this will send a message to all who think they're the most important part of the team.
I think there's going to be more coming.....stay tuned!
Just recently, McClain supposedly put this on his Facebook page.
“Officially no longer an Oakland Raider!!”
“Well technically I am. But I’m mentally done. Just waiting on my papers”
And: “I’d like to be anywhere besides here.”
McClain is earning $970,000 this season in base salary. He is slated to make $4,005,000 in 2013, $4,805,000 in 2014 and $2,665,000 in 2015.
The Punk Isn't gone Yet... But I do want him gone for being a Cry Baby.. F#$K the Loser http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...raiders-roster
He is still listed on the Raiders Rooster for 11/28/2012
I am hoping maybe he is still on cause maybe then plan on trading him... If the Raiders get nothing for him its a Total BUST
Love It ... " Well technically I am. But I’m mentally done " .. A Mental Retard ... Roflmao

no one is gonna trade for his contract
ALAMEDA -- Raiders starting middle linebacker Rolando McClain said Wednesday that he no longer is with the team. The Raiders countered by saying McClain still is on their 53-man roster.
Then again, this might be just a matter of semantics, given the deadline to waive McClain came and went without a move being made.
"Officially no longer an Oakland Raider!!" McClain posted on his Facebook page.
He then added, "Well technically I am. But I'm mentally done. Just waiting on my papers" and "I'd like to be anywhere besides here."
What we know for certain is that McClain did not practice Wednesday because of what coach Dennis Allen called "team-related issues."
When asked if he cared to share more
details, Allen said: "No more details, no more comments. Just team-related issues."
The Raiders have until 1 p.m. Thursday to submit McClain to the waiver wire for the transaction to kick in that day. A team spokesman said he doesn't know whether that's going to take place.
He should have went a long time ago.
we should package him along with dmac to get a 2nd,3rd or 4th round pick.
Reading between the lines... he quit on the team.
You get paid an unbelievable amount of money to play football, and you quit on the team?
Good riddance. He'll be back in 'Bama, shooting up more of his friends before too long.
Damned shame. I really thought McClain was going to be a good player - I readily admit, I was wrong.
