Well this might be one of the most surprising news out of the NFL since the draft just a few weeks ago. Ravens LB Rolando McClain has called it a career at just the age of 23 today. McClain who some may was supposed to replace the retiring Ray Lewis at LB this upcoming season. McClain who signed a one year deal by the Ravens coming over from the Raiders.

You may remember that McClain was arrested on April 22 for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. This may not be much a surprise since it was his third arrest in a span of eleven months. He was previously charged in a 2011 shooting, and police arrested him in January on charges of having his car windows tinted too darkly and trying to lie about his identity. McClain was sentenced to jail on an assault charge after the shooting, but prosecutors later dismissed the case.

There were some speculation that he could lose his starting job at LB for the Ravens this season after drafting Arthur Brown in the second round. The eighth overall pick of the 2010 draft, McClain finished his NFL career with 274 tackles (195 solo), 6.5 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble and 23 passes defended in 41 career games with Oakland. Now who wonders what the Ravens will do next after having a tough offseason losing a lot of free agents especially on defense.
