  • Rolando McClain says he's retiring at age 23

    Ravens placed ILB Rolando McClain on the reserve/retired list.
    "Rolando let me know that he plans to retire from the NFL," GM Ozzie Newsome said in a statement. "We have placed him on the Reserve/Retired list." It's a bizarre ending to a tumultuous career, but likely a false one. McClain doesn't turn 24 until July, and is only 37 months removed from being the No. 8 pick of the 2010 draft. He has numerous unresolved legal issues, however, and was facing release had he not "retired." If McClain can't get his life and career on track, he'll finish with just 244 tackles, seven sacks and one forced fumble across 41 games. The Ravens are moving forward with second-rounder Arthur Brown, Jameel McClain, Albert McClellan, and Josh Bynes at inside linebacker.
