    I would give nothing for him. The guy was given the chance of a lifetime and He blew it, not someone else, it is all on him.
    On December 1, 2011, McClain was arrested by Decatur police and charged with third-degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm inside the city limits, all of which are misdemeanors, for a shooting incident that occurred the night before.[28][29] On May 17, 2012, McClain was found guilty on all counts, ordered to pay a $500 fine for each charge, totaling $2,000, and sentenced to spend 45 days in jail for each charge, 180 in total. He was freed on bond, and will begin serving his sentence on June 1.[30]

    On November 18, 2012, while the case was on appeal, the charges were dismissed by the Judge after the victim decided not to press charges. According to lawyers involved, a financial settlement was reached between McClain and the victim.[31]

    On January 8, 2013 McClain was arrested by Decatur Police in Morgan County after an officer pulled him over for a window tint violation. McClain provided the officer with a false name and he was arrested and booked into the Decatur City Jail. McClain bonded out of jail later that day.[32]

    On April 21, 2013, McClain was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

    by that logic, I offer this: jamarcus russell was first overall talent, how did that go? Wanna give him a go?

    McClain is a true "thug".
    Joe Philbin says, "Jim Turner was a great coach. He made sure shoes were tied at all times and that no gum wrappers touched the field."

    I think people are forgetting what a run thumper he was at Alabama and his first two years (2010-2011) in the NFL. He is definitely able to diagnose running plays and tackle better than Wheeler. People are also acting like 6th & 7th round picks are a for sure hit. I'd much rather take a chance on a player who has proven he can play in tbe NFL but lost it mentally after the success & money might have gone to his head. You also have to remember that he took a year off, on his own recognizance, to try and get better. He spent that time at Alabama, figuring out what he wanted to do with his life.

    Now I agree with those who say the legal problems he had in the past are a reason to say no, but to act like he wouldn't be competition for Wheeler for a bargain price of a low round pick are kidding themselves.
    When I die I want to hire the Miami Dolphin's to be my pallbearers so they can let me down one last time.

    Kind of a pointless discussion. With our recent history, this is the last guy we'd ever consider (regardless of talent). I know we need help at LB, but they are not going to stick their neck out that far again.

    I'm all for second chances and wish him nothing but the best in his life and his NFL comeback, but the Phins should not be the team that is going to give him his chance...if he succeeds or fails somewhere else, I won't lose sleep either way...
