OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - The Ravens say linebacker Rolando McClain is retiring from the NFL.

Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome Newsome said Wednesday, "Rolando let me know that he plans to retire from the NFL."

Newsome says the 23-year-old McClain has been placed on the reserve/retired list.

McClain signed with the Ravens as a free agent on April 12. Ten days later, he was arrested in Alabama and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Before joining the Ravens, McClain spent his first three NFL seasons with the Oakland Raiders. He was the eighth overall pick in the 2010 draft out of Alabama.

In 41 games with Oakland he had 274 tackles, 6½ sacks and one interception. In his final season, he was suspended for two games for conduct detrimental to the team.
