McClain issues statement on assault incident

Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain, who was sentenced to 180 days in jail over an assault incident in Alabama, issued an apology of sorts on Tuesday with a prepared statement that lasted 35 seconds, according to Comcast Bay Area.

The statement text read as follows: "I'm aware of the bad publicity that I've given the Raiders. After talking to Coach (Dennis) Allen, I have the support of the Raiders, my teammates, as well as the coaching staff. I apologize for the bad publicity that's been put out there. But it is a legal process and I can't talk much about it, but I think in due time the Raiders and the Raiders fans that are out there will see it all come to an end. It is what it is; I can't really talk much about it but it will be resolved in the near future."

McClain did not answer any questions following the statement he read.
