Rolando McClain is back at his alma mater now that his NFL career has ended.

Alabama coach Nick Saban said Tuesday at an Athens (Tenn.) Area Chamber of Commerce benefit dinner that "(McClain's) gone back to school. He's with us now."

McClain, 23, won the Butkus Award as the nation's top linebacker in 2009 while leading Alabama to a national title.

He played three seasons with the Raiders, who selected him with the eighth overall pick in the 2010 draft. McClain signed with the Baltimore Ravens in April, but he was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest shortly afterward, his third arrest since 2011. Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said last month that McClain indicated he planned to retire.

  • Vonta Leach was released by the Ravens, who failed to agree on a restructured contract with the three-time All-Pro fullback. Newsome left open the possibility that Leach could return if he fails to find an adequate suitor in the free-agent market.

  • The Indianapolis Colts agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent Ahmad Bradshaw. The former New York Giants star gives the Colts depth in the backfield and could challenge for the starting role. Bradshaw ran for 1,015 yards and six touchdowns last season.

  • Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones pleaded not guilty to an assault charge after police say he hit a woman at a nightclub last week in Cincinnati. Jones participated in the start of the Bengals' training camp Tuesday but declined to comment.
