To little surprise, Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain has cleared waivers. No team would have been willing to claim the his top-10 pre-rookie wage scale contract.
But now that McClain is a free agent, teams are interested. (Technically, he a free agent and not an unrestricted free agents; the term “unrestricted” implies that his contract has expired.)
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, multiple franchises have expressed interest in McClain. However, teams will have trepidation about a guy who has underperformed on the field and overperformed, in the wrong way, off the field.
