Raiders Looking For Ways To Punish LB Rolando McClain, Won't Cut Him
The Oakland Raiders aren't saying what they are going to do with linebacker Rolando McClain, the No. 8 overall pick in the 2010 draft but it's pretty clear based on coach Dennis Allen's words Thursday that they aren't going to cut McClain, despite an ESPN report to the contrary.
One day after McClain posted (and subsequently deleted) on his Facebook page that he was "officially" done in Oakland, McClain remains on the roster. He just isn't going to be allowed to practice.
"We asked (McClain) not to come to practice," Allen said, citing "consequences" to McClain's actions.
CSNBayArea.com reported that McClain got into a "heated argument" with Allen on Wednesday before getting kicked out of practice. The website smartly speculates that the Raiders are looking for a way to suspend McClain without pay from the team without letting him go.
