|McClain's Mugshot from 2011 Arrest|
This is certainly a unique way to part ways with a team after getting in trouble.
Rolando McClain- 23-years old, 3 seasons and 2 arrests into his NFL career has decided to hang up his cleats and retire from the Baltimore Ravens.
McClain never played for the Ravens, who picked him up after being cut by the Oakland Raiders. He did have some success in Oakland, but a string of arrests in his hometown, Decatur, Alabama bought him a one-way ticket out of town.

The Ravens gave him a chance to rehabilitate his image, but another arrest last month in Decatur, Alabama put his career in jeopardy.
McClain, a graduate of the University of Alabama, was a 1st round pick by the Raiders and at times did flash some talent, but teams already have grown weary of his act. The Ravens appear to have given him an easy way out and moved him to the "Reserve/Retired" list with the league.
