McClain reaches settlement in lawsuit


Raiders middle linebacker Rolando McClain reportedly reached a settlement in a lawsuit that stems from a 2008 incident in which a student accused McClain of hitting him with a vehichle and physical assault.
Next up for McClain is a trial May 17 on charges from a November incident in Decatur, Ala., in which McClain is allegedly punched a man and threatened to kill him. He also is alleged to have fired a gun near the man’s head.

  • Well, the Raiders had a losing record over the last 20 years. That’s all I know.

  • YoungAmerican

    I’d be VERY surprised and SUPER happy if Mike Martin dropped to #95.

    DT Martin
    DE Bequette
    LB Burris
    LB Brown
    DE Alexander

    Sounds like a potential disaster/scandal…someone hacked their IPAD during the game and ….

    Despite ReggieMck saying he doesn’t like to trade-away future picks, it wouldn’t be a shock to me to see him do just that if he sees a chance to get one of “his guys.”

    You know he’s done his homework, and packaging this year’s (trade-able) 5th-rounder with next year’s 3rd-rounder could get us into the late 3rd, early 4th this year.

    I believe in taking the “best player available,” just like Reggie does…but I also know GM’s move when they see a Player they don’t want to get away. No reason to think ReggieMck won’t be the same way…and he can do it without reaching too far for value now.

    The Raiders’ highest draft priorities: LB, DT, C, and QB…in close to that order, but interchangeable, depending on who’s left on the draft board…

    Best Value: ILB Mychal Kendricks, Cal…OLB Lavonte David, Neb
    Raiders best bets: ILB James-Michael Johnson, Nevada…ILB Tank Carder, TCU… OLB/DE Bruce Irvin, WV…OLB/DE Kyle Wilber, Wake

    Best Value: Josh Chapman, AL
    Raiders best bets: Alameda Ta’amu, WU…Hebron Fangupo, BYU… Derek Wolfe, Cincy

    Best Value: Brandon Weeden, Okla St (he’ll be long gone, unfortunately)
    Raiders best bets: Nick Foles, AZ…Russell Wilson, WI…Brock Osweiler, ASU. (Either could be #2 this year. Yikes!)

    Best Value: Mike Brewster, Ohio St
    Raiders best bets: Mike Brewster, Ohio St…Grant Garner, Okla St…Quentin Saulsberry, Mississippi

    If ReggieMck can get one Player from each of those categories, he’ll hit a home run (on paper, anyway). Get Players from 3-of-the-4 categories I listed above, and we’ll be better for it.

    Lots of talent out there, even if the “names” don’t overwhelm this year!

  • HayesDaze37

    OK, JerryMcD and Cork —

    We’ve been patiently awaiting your amazing pre-draft coverage…waiting for you to tell us everything the Raiders need to get in the draft, and when they need to get it.

    Time for all that behind-the-scenes work you’ve been doing to make its appearance. We know you’ve got it.

    Is Martin the guy who tested positive for marijuana at the Combine?

    When that happens AT THE COMBINE it tells me the dudes not smart enough to prep for a time and date he has known is going to happen since he started high school football.

    LOTS of NFL players smoke. Detroits got a couple of players busted by cops in the same week.

    Martin’s a good player but he’s not smart. Better pot than violence but still…All in all though I’d take him at 95…

    Waiting for the party line from Reggie

  • HayesDaze37

    Quentin Saulsberry goes to Miss St, not Ole Miss

  • RaiderWeaponX http://www.raidernationstation.com/raider_nation_station

    Wonder what hes gonna tell us this time?

    “We’re here to win Championships.”

    “We’re gonna focus on fixing penalties and get the best players possible.”

    Translation: “I like milk.”

  • HayesDaze37

    Just like Al…when he spills milk, he likes it better if it runs fast.

    Ohio State’s Mike Adams maybe?

    I say quit picking on KoolKell. I have had my differences with him, no doubt. Take him on the substance of his comments. I am worried that he is not well. If we are a nation, then we should show some compassion.
