The only thing that makes sense would be that money gets McClain in trouble. He's high profile in the little town of Decatur where he's from. Highly doubt it, but maybe he realizes that the only way to get his act together is to keep a low profile.

You know what they say. Mo money, Mo problems.

I'd prefer to have him, but this isn't a big loss since anything he gives us would've been unexpected.  I was excited about his potential, but no big loss of course.

I was fine taking a chance on him given his upside... but that he's in a state of mind where he just up and retires at 23, definitely proves we're dodging a big bullet here, IMHO.

The young man is really lost.   The Ravens will be fine without him.  IMO he needed a solid team like the Ravens to help him get on the right track.

I think signing McClain was a low cost, possible high reward move. It was a nice gamble by Ozzie that didn't work out. With or without McClain, I'm still excited to see the defense next season!!
