Well, that didn’t take long.
Rolando McClain’s return to the Ravens, which was supposed to begin today with offseason conditioning, apparently was a short one.
McClain told Seth Wickersham of ESPN.com that he was walking away from football, this time for good, saying “I’m done.”
“If football made me complete I would play,” McClain said. “But whenever I think of it my heart pulls me away from whatever reason.”
Every expectation was that the Ravens were going to give the former eighth-overall pick a chance to continue a comeback, even after a sorry performance in their conditioning drill.
But with fellow Alabama man Ozzie Newsome willing to offer him an opportunity, and McClain not grasping it, you have to wonder if we’ve (finally) heard the last of him as it relates to football.
