Rolando McClain talking about a comeback

Last October, agent Pat Dye Jr. said he thought a comeback was possible for his client Rolando McClain.

McClain retired abruptly last May after another arrest was added to his lengthy police blotter, leaving the former eighth overall pick out of football entirely at the age of 24. According to Matt Zenitz of the Carroll County Times, McClain would like to make Dye look prescient.

Zenitz reports that McClain has been telling people that he plans to play in 2014. Per the report, McClain has been working out regularly and is in a better mental state than he was when he walked away from the game.

The Ravens own McClain’s rights after signing him following his release from the Raiders and there’s no word on their interest in a return from a player who never actually suited up for them. As Zenitz notes, it’s already been a long offseason for the Ravens on the legal trouble front and they could opt to let another team roll the dice on a McClain comeback bid.
