As it turns out, the  Ravens  didn't make out as well as what was originally thought in the deal that sent inactive middle linebacker Rolando McClain to the  Dallas Cowboys . It was widely reported after the deal that the Ravens would send McClain, who was on the reserved/retired list, plus a 2015 seventh-round pick to the Cowboys for a 2015 sixth-round pick. However, that's the best-case scenario. The Cowboys announced the terms of the deal today and that 2015 draft pick exchange will only take place if McClain plays 50 percent of the defensive snaps for Dallas during the 2014 season.

Middle linebacker Rolando McClain has decided that he wants to play football again but it won't be with the Ravens. After watching McClain retire twice in a year's span without playing a game for the team, the Ravens traded the rights to the mercurial linebacker, plus a 2015 seventh-round pick, to the Dallas Cowboys for a 2015 sixth-rounder. The Cowboys, who were looking for linebacker help after standout Sean Lee suffered a season-ending knee injury in an offseason workout, activated McClain from the reserve-retired list, and placed Lee on injured reserve.

Retired middle linebacker Rolando McClain had a shaky workout in front of Ravens' officials today, leaving his future with the team in doubt. McClain was unable to pass the team's conditioning test and showed considerable rust during drills, according to team sources. However, his struggles didn't come as a huge surprise to Ravens' officials since McClain hasn't played in an NFL game since late in the 2012 season. It's unclear if the Ravens will revisit the situation and give McClain another workout at a later date, allowing him more of an opportunity to get in football shape, or if they are officially ready to move on from the oft-troubled linebacker.

Middle linebacker  Rolando McClain  has said on his Twitter page that he plans on coming back and playing in the 2014 season. The  Ravens  still hold his contractual rights, but it doesn't sound like they are sweating McClain's decision. John Harbaugh said Tuesday that he hasn't spoken to the former University of Alabama standout, who retired nearly a month after he signed with the Ravens last April, and the Ravens coach is unsure whether the 24-year-old plans to play or not.   “I have not had discussions with Rolando personally.

Rolando McClain's professional football career just ended with a thud ("Rolando McClain will retire from NFL," May 16). At the young age of 23 years, he has chosen to retire from the NFL before he even appeared in a Ravens jersey. To be blunt, he's a jerk with skewed priorities. He was recently arrested for the third time since he turned pro. Instead of manning up to confront his demons, he chose the low road and decided to retire. His decision smacks of hypocrisy and cowardice. This proves to me that even the stellar Ravens' brass makes occasional mistakes (see Sergio Kindle)

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome was having a great offseason as far as acquisitions and building the team, but the Ravens are embarrassed by linebacker Rolando McClain's announced retirement. The old mantra about "In Ozzie We Trust" should be changed to "In Ozzie We Trust, Most Of The Time. " The Ravens blew it on this one. They went out and signed a knucklehead who remained a knucklehead. At this point, we don't know why McClain retired at age 23, and to be honest, I'm afraid to ask. I really don't want to know, and I'm just glad he is out of here.

Troubled inside linebacker Rolando McClain informed Ravens officials Wednesday that he will retire from the NFL, a decision he reached before participating in one practice with his new team. McClain signed with the Ravens on April 12, was arrested just nine days later and then made the surprising decision Wednesday to call it quits on his playing career at the age of 23. Taken eighth overall by the Oakland Raiders in the 2010 draft, McClain played just three seasons, his career marred by on-field inconsistency and off-the-field legal issues.

The Ravens repopulated their defense during the first four rounds of the NFL draft and found several high-quality players to help fill the biggest holes remaining on a defensive unit that lost six key contributors during the team's post-Super Bowl roster shuffle. That group included safety Matt Elam, whose rise from a harrowing childhood has made him one of the inspirational stories of the draft, and high-character players Arthur Brown, Brandon Williams and John Simon. The player personnel types call those guys “red star” players, which is the pre-draft equivalent of the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.
