Maurice Jones-Drew wants to compete for starting job
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

New Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew told the media on Tuesday that he knows he'll have to compete to start with Darren McFadden. He says he's motivated to prove he can still run the ball effectively and will work hard to earn the starting role. 

One reason why he thinks he'll get that role? Because his foot feels "phenomenal." 

"I am getting my strength back and my body has really responded," he told the San Francisco Chronicle. "My goal last year was to show people I was healthy again and finish the season strong. My goal this year is to be explosive again."

Jones-Drew also said he's down to 215 pounds with a goal of getting to 208 by training camp.

Rolando McClain: I'm done
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Linebacker Rolando McClain is retiring from football again, telling ESPN in a text that football isn't for him

"I gotta follow my heart. It ain't football," McClain wrote. "If football made me complete I would play. But whenever I think of it my heart pulls me away from whatever reason. ... This means I'm done."

McClain reportedly failed a conditioning test in Baltimore when he considered making a comeback. He was reinstated last week but it might have been so he could retire. He never played for the Ravens

McClain finishes his three-year NFL career with 246 total tackles over 41 games with 6.5 sacks, an interception and a forced fumble. McClain was originally an eighth-overall selection by the Raiders in 2010, taken just ahead of C.J. Spiller.
