Ravens linebacker Rolando McClain has been placed on the reserve/retired list, according to the NFL’s Tuesday transaction log.
McClain told ESPN on Monday that he was ending his comeback attempt after a season away from football.
The Ravens signed the 24-year-old McClain last April, but the former Alabama star retired a little more than a month later. The Raiders’ first-round pick in 2010, McClain started 38 games in three seasons with Oakland, but off-field issues and a dispute with coach Dennis Allen marred his tenure.
For the time being, the Ravens retain McClain’s rights should he decide to return again to football.
