Former Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain is looking forward to starting over with a new NFL team soon. Right now it looks like that team will be the Ravens.
McClain recently moved to a different town in Alabama to get away from the influences that have been around him since he’s was a child.
“As a kid and young adult you make mistakes and I have made some,” he said. “I have tried to do good, but sometimes the devil wins.”
McClain admit she had to change his surroundings.
“When you come into some money, some people think you owe them and they want some of your money, but I tried to always stay true to who I am,” McClain said. “My wife has completely changed me. She’s made me mellow, softer. . . .
“I am who I am. I’ll have to change my surroundings. I love my friends and my city and I won’t turn my back on them. I just need to make better decisions in my life. I won’t be making as many visits to Decatur.”
