ESPN is reporting that Baltimore Ravens linebacker Rolando McClain has decided to retire, for a second time...
quote:

On the day the linebacker was due to report to the Baltimore Ravens for the first day of the team's offseason workout program, he sent a text to ESPN.com saying, "I gotta follow my heart. It ain't football. If football made me complete I would play. But whenever I think of it my heart pulls me away from whatever reason. ... This means I'm done."

Last week the Ravens activated McClain, 24, off the reserve-retired list. Last year, after McClain had been released by the Oakland Raiders following a string of arrests, the Ravens signed him to a one-year contract worth the veteran minimum of $700,000.
McClain, a former defensive standout at Alabama, was drafted No. 8 overall in 2010 draft by the Raiders.

During 3 season in Oakland he recorded 246 tackles and 6.5 sacks. His off the field issues out-weighed his NFL performance as he was arrested three times in an 11-month span while with the Raiders.
