Rolando McClain was so angry before walking away from the game that he was concerned that he would do something he would regret, and pay per head services were just happy to know that he didn’t lose it.
“I felt like Aaron Hernandez, like I just wanted to kill somebody,” McClain told ESPN The Magazine.
McClain was released in April by the Oakland Raiders after several problems off the field, and he signed with the Baltimore Ravens. Then he decided to retire at 23.
Pay per head services found out that the player eventually went back to Tuscaloosa, Ala., where he was a star at Alabama, so he could get his life together, and finishing his degree was one of the goals that he set for himself.
The peaceful college life stands in direct contrast to the trouble and pressures he experienced in his life with the NFL, and price per head services believe that making a life change could seriously help the player.
The interview reported that from the moment he signed a contract with Oakland for $23 million, he was targeted by his friends and relatives. He said he spent almost $600,000 during a six-month span, mostly on cars, to satisfy money requests.
Pay per head services saw that he started losing his love for the game and kept getting into trouble. He was arrested in a shooting in December 2011. Then he was arrested in January 2013 for providing a false identity to police and having his car windows tinted too dark. He was also arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest ten days after having signed with the Ravens.
McClain felt that if his life didn’t change, he “would have ended up locked in a cage like an animal. That had to be the only outcome.”
Having been raised in a single-parent home surrounded by drugs, guns, and violence, McClain ran away at 15 and was living on friends’ couches. Football was a way to release his anger, and pay per head services know how much the sport can help.
He thought about going to therapy, but he’s not sure yet.
“I don’t know if I’m ready to know, man, why I was so angry,” he said.

McClain found some peace away from football for now, even though he hopes to return to the league, and maybe this will happen as soon as next season.
