Rolando McClain Has Been 'Exceptional' At Raiders Training Camp

Oakland Radiers head coach Dennis Allen took some time on Friday to join 'The Wheelhouse' on 95.7 The Game in San Francisco to discuss how training camp has been going thus far, having some exemplary things to say about linebacker Rolando McClain.

When asked whom he's been impressed with the most in camp, Allen was quick to mention McClain and the hard work he's been putting in:

A guy I think that has been exceptional has been Rolando McClain. He's been a guy that has done everything we have asked him to do. He's smart. He understands the defense and the concepts we are trying to run and if he continues to improve the way he has been improving and continues to fit within the scheme the way he has done so far I would expect him to have a good year.

McClain is still dealing with some off the field issues, but has seemingly figured it out on the field so far in camp. He recorded 99 tackles and five sacks for Oakland last season.
