Rolando McClain pleads not guilty to latest charges

Rolando McClain AP

Former first-round pick Rolando McClain’s trying to get his life back together at college, and he’s trying to clear his name at the same time.

McClain, who was placed on the reserve-retired list by the Ravens after his most recent arrest, pleaded not guilty to disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges Tuesday, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun.

McClain filed the pleas through his attorney, and was assigned a Dec. 12 court date. He was arrested in April after a disturbance in his hometown of Decatur, Ala.

The Ravens took a low risk trying to give the former Raiders bust a second chance, though it remains to be seen if they will again.

    If he gets his life together, he can become an excellent Inside Linebacker. But that may be a big “If.”

    While I’m sure McClain is a d-bag, the latest set of charges sound an awful lot like he was charged with being black in Alabama.

    If he gets his life back together, Ozzie will show him the way. Ozzie knows best. That’s why the Ravens are World Champions and the Steelers are a little irrelevant 8-8 has-been group of rugby clowns.

    LOL he must have the same lawyers giving him advise that Hernandez has.

    And the Ravens thought they were so smart. Told you so. The kid has no desire for football anymore now that he is a multi millionaire. I hope he is on food stamps in a couple of years. Scum

    Because the best way to turn your life around and get back in the NFL is to admit your past mistakes and plead not guilty…. oh wait.

    @fooldrool: as if that ever kept you from commenting in a similar nature before. Pot, kettle, black.

    Not a good move by Ozzie, hopefully the Ravens front office, can be as half as good, as the Steelers front office, some day.

    “…hopefully the Ravens front office, can be as half as good, as the Steelers front office, some day.”

    Oh yes. I’m sure the Ravens long for the day when they can lose half their games and go two years without winning a single playoff. And maybe they can draft a QB who’ll drag the team into the biggest sex scandal in the history of the NFL! But these are merely dreams. Sigh.

    He’d look good in a Patriot uni…
