Rolando McClain appears to be on his way out with the Oakland Raiders, and he reportedly isn’t hiding his disdain for the organization. The third-year linebacker did not practice with the team on Wednesday for what coach Dennis Allen described as “team-related issues.” The former No. 8 overall draft pick then apparently ripped the team over social media. According to Kyle Burger of WVTM-TV in Birmingham, McClain wrote “I’m gonna weigh my options. Looking forward to playing for an actual ‘team.’” Burger also says McClain wrote on his Facebook page “Officially no longer an Oakland Raider!!” and “I’d like to be anywhere besides here” before later wiping out those posts. Though I was unable to see those posts (you likely have to be friends with him on Facebook to see them), this is his Facebook profile and it looks authentic. The Raiders are saying that McClain is still on the roster, though it’s possible they have told him he will be waived. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Allen said, “I don’t know that,” when asked if McClain would be back at practice on Thursday. McClain had two pretty good seasons with the Raiders prior to this year. He was replaced in the team’s nickel defense package and has seen his playing time cut. He was recently cleared by a judge after initially being sentenced to 180 days in jail for allegedly threatening to kill a man and then firing a gun by his head. We’re eager to see which team picks up this gem of a man when he becomes available. H/T Ian Rapoport
