Rolando McClain eyes return to NFL

James Mirone-USA Today sorts

Former Alabama linebacker, Rolando McClain, is attempting to make an NFL comeback, according to AL.Com’s Matt Zenitz.

McClain told Zenits, he feels recovered and rested.

“Not only do I feel good,” McClain said. “I’m recovered and rested. I feel better now because I know i’ll be playing with two legs.”

McClain suited up for the Tide from 2007 to 2009. The Decatur-native won the Dick Butkus award as a junior and helped Alabama win the 2010 BCS National Championship. The Oakland Raiders selected McClain in the 2010 NFL Draft with the eighth overall pick.

The Oakland Raiders had McClain on their roster from 2010-2012. McClain suited up for the Dallas Cowboys in 2014 and 2015. He has 412 total tackles in his NFL career.

The NFL indefinitely suspended McClain in 2016 due to some legal issues.

The ball looks to be in the hands of the NFL at this point as McClain wants to take advantage of an NFL opportunity.
