Linebacker Rolando McClain has told the Baltimore Ravens that he is retiring from the NFL.

McClain, who is only 23-years-old, played three seasons with the Oakland Raiders before signing a one-year deal with the Ravens on April 12.

The 6’4, 259-pound Alabama native is a graduate of the University of Alabama.

He was drafted into the NFL in 2010 by the Raiders, first round, eighth pick overall.

His NFL totals: 244 tackles, 6.5 quarterback sacks and 1 interception.

The NFL is giving the sons of Chris Carter and Joe Montana a shot to become stars in the league where their dads starred.

Duron Carter, an undrafted 6-foot-5, 205-pound wide receiver and son of 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Chris Carter, has signed a contract with the Minnesota Vikings.

Chris Carter played 15 years in the NFL as a possession receiver.

Joe Montana’s son, Nate Montana, also a quarterback, has been invited to the San Francisco 49ers upcoming rookie camp. The 23-year-old had a good showing earlier in April at the team’s local pro day.

Joe Montana played 17 years in the NFL.

Ted Ginn Jr. has left the Super Bowl runner-up San Francisco 49ers to play for the Carolina Panthers.

The former Ohio State Buckeyes star signed a one-year contract.

Ginn is with his third NFL team in six years. The wide receiver, kick returner and punt return specialist has played with Miami and now, Carolina.

In 75 NFL games, Ginn has 159 receptions for 2,047 yards and 6 touchdowns, 3 kickoff returns for TD’s and 3 punt returns for a TD.

 

Ravens, Orioles can’t work out conflict; Super Bowl champions begin season on road

The NFL has no choice but to have a rarity occur with its Super Bowl champion.

The Baltimore Ravens, who defeated the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl back in February, will be celebrating their title with a road game to start the 2013 season.

The NFL had sought the help of the Baltimore Orioles and Major League Baseball to move a game from the evening to the daytime, but to no avail.

The Ravens play at M&T Bank Stadium and the Orioles play at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The two stadiums sit next door to each other and they share the same parking lots, so the teams try to avoid playing at the same time due to traffic problems.

The NFL traditionally has its reigning champion open at home and had the Ravens playing at home on Thursday, September 5. But the Orioles already had scheduled to play the Chicago White Sox that evening.

The NFL is looking to set up a celebration in Baltimore to honor the Ravens with a pre-game concert even with the team playing on the road.

Commissioner Goodell says NFL playoffs won’t expand in 2013

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said on Monday that the league will not be adding any teams to the playoffs for the 2013 season.

There had been talk and speculation that the NFL would expand past the current 12-team format.

The other topic at the owners meetings in Phoenix yesterday was that there is a scheduling conflict with the Baltimore Ravens opening at home due to the Baltimore Orioles game on the same date.

The Ravens play at M&T Bank Stadium and the Orioles at Camden Yards, just across the streek and the two stadiums share the same parking lots.

Traditionally, the NFL season opens with the Super Bowl winners playing host on the Thursday night after Labor Day.

The Ravens will not have that opportunity unless the Orioles move their night game on September 5 to the afternoon.

The NFL will not have the option of using September 4 because it is the first night of the Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah.

Goodell says he has twice talked to MLB commissioner Bud Selig to help get a resolution with the Orioles, but has not heard anything back.

The NFL has moved opening nights before. Last year, the opener was moved to Wednesday avoiding a conflict with President Barack Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.
