As expected, and long awaited, the Raiders have parted ways with middle linebacker Rolando McClain, who turned out to be as much a bust on the field as he was trouble off the field.
The Raiders cut former first-round draft pick and middle linebacker Rolando McClain Friday, the team announced on Twitter:
The Raiders will face Dallas, New Orleans, Chicago and Seattle in the preseason this year, the NFL announced Thursday, though the exact dates and times of the games are not yet known.
Talk about turnover.
Widely regarded as the biggest draft bust in NFL history, former Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell might get a chance to re-write that legacy.
