TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Former Oakland Raiders first-round pick Rolando McClain is pondering a return to the NFL.

The 24-year-old McClain retired last year after signing a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens. McClain enrolled in Alabama and said Wednesday he's been working out and spending time with his two young sons.

He says he's "not going to wait for the door to be closed. Right now, I think it's still open. I've still got some things to get in order before we make that decision."

McClain says agent Pat Dye Jr. has spoken with the Ravens.

He had off-the-field issues during his three-year NFL stint, including an arrest in his Alabama hometown 10 days after signing with the Ravens.

McClain had 274 tackles, 6-1/2 sacks and an interception in 41 games with Oakland.
