    Rolando McClain and Raiders Coach Dennis Allen had a heated exchange early in practice I'm told. Ended with McClain booted from field...

    which explains his Tweets and the fallout. Allen has said he is not sure if McClain will be allowed to practice Thurs. no further comment
    Interesting.

    Yeah I'd take him. Would've taken Babin too but he didn't even make it down to us. Doubt McLain will either.

    This I'd love to get McClain but I don't see it being possible.

    You wouldnt have wanted Babin. Hes a 4-3 DE, only succeeds in the 9-technique. Hes a one trick pony and sucks against the run and the pass.

    Would be an upgrade over our McClain, so yes absolutely interested. Will it happen? No, unfortunately. He's only 23 too

    Seriously, anytime anyone is ever cut, released, or available I know dollars to donuts there will be a thread on it here no matter HOW improbable the signing.

    Babin was a stretch and a horrible idea for us at that.

    Rolando McClain, maybe... hes a great idea however with all of these teams needing linebacking help - not so sure if he'll pass waivers... his contract is hefty though.

    I still cannot for the life of me figure out why EJ Henderson is not on anyones radar or a team for that matter.

    He had over 100 tackles last season, 2 sacks and 3 FF. Hes only 32... W T F?

    Would you rather pay ~6 million next year for Ray or 10 million for Rolando?

    I could see it possibly working out... we pay 10 million and have him the rest of this year and next. He had 5 sacks, ~100 tackles, 14 PDef last season. We cut our current McClain, give his contract to Dannell Ellerbe(something like a 2 year 7 million). Thatd be a pretty solid LB core.

    Rolando's only 23 as well.

    The only way Ray isn't on the roster next year is if he retires. Personally speaking, I'd rather have neither scenarios. Both players are not worth that much. I'd argue that no ILB is worth 6-10 million dollars in todays league unless their name is Patrick Willis, Brian Cushing, or Novoro Bowman.

    However, a young Ray Lewis is probably worth as much as a top flight QB, he was that good.

    EJ Henderson is a 2 down linebacker. He isnt fast enough to cover anymore and he has a pretty large list of injuries.

    I had hope the Ravens would have considered him back in August, but I understand why they didnt. Erin Henderson was available as well.

    I would take him if given the chance. The kid can play and I think if you surround him with veteran leadership in the locker room and have a stable organization around him he will flourish.

    Sounds more like Rolando McClain wants to part ways with the Raiders. I'm not so sure they are going to do anything in season

    No way anyone signs a "headcase" with that contract. Though the Raiders would LOVE it if someone claimed him
