New York Giants Should Not Consider Signing Rolando McClain
It was certainly surprising to some that the Oakland Raiders didn’t release LB Rolando McClain as soon as possible. Since being drafted in the first round by the Raiders in 2010, McClain has been nothing but a headache to the organization. He was suspended and put on the inactive list late last season for conduct detrimental to the team.
McClain has had run-ins with the law also, which will now make it difficult for him to land a job with another team. The New York Giants are a team looking for quality players at the linebacker position. The Giants released LB Michael Boley and let LB Chase Blackburn go via free agency. They were not good at all as a unit last season and need improvement.
McClain was good against the run when he was a star at Alabama and at times with the Raiders. However, he has clearly shown to be a divisive force in a locker room. The Giants have many veterans who can potentially keep him on the straight and narrow. However, some attitudes and behavior are near impossible to correct overnight.
In all likelihood, McClain would only receive a one-year deal with the Giants, or with any other team for that matter. In other words, he isn’t worth causing headaches to teammates for one year. The Giants are a team with championship aspirations, and are just a season removed from one.
If McClain isn’t acquired by anyone this off-season, look for New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick to possibly take a chance on him. Belichick wouldn’t hesitate to cut him if he isn’t on his best behavior.
