Rolando McClain is close to getting a degree and hopefully rejoining the Baltimore Ravens.
The former No. 8 overall pick told Matt Zenitz of the Carroll County (Md.) Times. that he would like to resume his career with Baltimore if he receives the OK from G.M. Ozzie Newsome.
“I’m excited about the game again. I’m excited to play,” McClain told the Times in a story published Thursday.
Ravens brass has made it clear from the beginning that McClain’s return to Baltimore was strictly up to Newsome. The GM and McClain reportedly met in Alabama on Thursday.
A focused and healthy Rolando McClain would add tremendous depth to the Ravens linebacker core.
