Rolando McClain was once a Top 10 pick. He has terrific ability, but off field issues slowed his career and then he abruptly retired. He talked to the Ravens about coming back so they had him workout for them. Things didn’t go so well.
Rolando McClain got his workout w the Ravens and I'm hearing it was NOT a roaring success. Didn't finish conditioning test, didn't do drills

I mention him because I’ve always thought the Eagles might consider him as a low cost redemption project. He is the kind of raw talent they like. Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like McClain has the drive or work ethic to succeed in the NFL. That’s a shame. He was fun to watch at Bama and showed tremendous talent.
