Now that former Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain has retired we can look back and look at two big mistakes that Oakland made.
According to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times, the Raiders wasted $60 million in three years between McClain and JaMarcus Russell.
Difficult to comprehend, but the #Raiders paid MLB Rolando McClain and QB JaMarcus Russell almost $60 million. Both washed out in 3 years.

Those kind of mistakes are exactly why the Raiders have been so bad for the past several years.
