The often troubled linebacker reportedly worked out for the Ravens in an attempt to start his comeback from a self imposed hiatus from football in order to get his life together.

It has been reported that the workout went terribly with McClain unable to finish a conditioning test or do individual drills.

McClain, the former 8th pick of the Oakland Raiders in the 2010 draft, has faced numerous issues since coming into the league and was cut by the Raiders after a run in with the law and work ethic issues got too big of a distraction. It has been clear throughout his career that McClain has maturity issues that seem to be killing his chance at a meaningful career even though he definitely has the talent to be a top linebacker in the NFL.

If the reports are true that he was both late and physically unprepared, you'd have to think that this would completely end his chances of staging a meaningful comeback or even being able to make the roster of an NFL team. McClain unlike most other players has been given more than a handful of chances which can be solely attributed to the talent that he possesses. Hopefully the troubled linebacker can move on with his life and will be able to turn it around.

He probably should have used Uber today to get to his work out. The few bucks would have been worth it I think.
