Rolando McClain has not lived up to his billing on the field for the Oakland Raiders, and he has had a couple of run-ins with the law off it.

Now, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, McClain has been given permission by the Raiders to seek a trade if he can find a club that wants him.

McClain, a former first-round pick out of the University of Alabama, certainly has talent, but has had more than his share of problems. The Raiders may find a team willing to gamble a low-round pick. Otherwise, McClain might end up getting released.
