    I know my college had what they called a "May Term" where the class was every day for about 3 weeks. Perhaps this could be a similar situation. Probably keeps him out of OTA's etc, but back in time for TC.

    I have a problem with this. If he's serious about resuming his career with the Ravens, then I wouldn't be going to school in the Summer. I'd be concentrating on my physical self and shaking off the rust of football inactivity. There could be million$ at stake for him here, and IMO he can get his college degree AFTER his NFL "degree." ... Bc

    McClain doesn't have the mentality to play for a winner like John Harbaugh. He'd never get out of the doghouse

    It is very possible and the odds are very long against him making it all the way back.
    But there was a time when he was seen as something special.
    Maybe that is still there and can be brought out again.

    I hope so, for him, for his family, and all those around him.

    most would say that the biggest issue they have with him is that he "quit". So by seeing this through because thats what he set out to do, id think that would be a sign of going in the right direction. From everything ive read about him hes been working out with the Tide and on his own. So there may be some game day rust but i dont expect physical condition to really hamper his return. He is only 24.

    First of all, you're not going to get anything for his rights, IMO. Maybe a bag of "k" balls.

    Second, I think Harbs is playing it just right. If McClain is serious and driven to get back to being the best football player he can be, and he's willing to work his tail off, then they'll entertain the notion. Otherwise, he can stay retired.

    People think he couldn't go to classes and also train for football?? It should easily be possible for a minimally dedicated athlete to take 2 hours of classes in the morning and still get in a full workout.

    Your most important phrase = "minimally dedicated athlete."
    RMC is the definition of that... Bc

    It would be ideal if he turned his life around and then turned into the product that Ozzie and Oakland thought he was when he was selected 8th overall. But he is frustrating me with his back and forth stuff and he frustrated a lot of people last year when he did what he did. He also wasn't even good enough for OAKLAND to keep him. Just saying, I think it's doubtful. Very doubtful but would it be nice? YES.

    I don't think so.

    Re: Is Rolando McClain Coming Back or Not?

    If he does come back then he will have to work twice as hard because Harbs is going to be all over him.

    Knowing what we know about McClain...does that sound like something he'd be down for? Probably not.

    Harbs is a players coach in that aspect, he takes time to realize whats going on in guys lives and is compassionate to a degree (something stupid, drugs, alcohol not among them). IF hes dogging it at all, id expect him to be all over him as he would any player, but if hes actually trying and working hard I think hed treat him like any other player. I think it all depends on how McClain approaches them and the OTAs. If he does just come to camp with little to no communication before hand, than yeah i could see Harbs riding him more quickly. If hes able to attend some OTAs or is communication with Oz and Harbs before TC trying to get up to speed than I see no issue.

    Re: Is Rolando McClain Coming Back or Not?

    Just read on Twitter from one of the sun reporters that Ozzie will be in Alabama tomorrow and plans to meet with McClain. McClain has been preparing as if he will be playing and if the ravens still want him plans to attend the April 21 meetings. Is currently weighing 253, which I think they said was lower than his college weight of 260. Said to be in best shape since college.

    He sounds like he's made up his mind
