Rolando McClain reportedly agrees a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens.

Former Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain has joined the Baltimore Ravens, according to ESPN.

The deal when made official is expected to be worth up to £700,000 after appearance bonuses, with McClain saying that the move would be "perfect" for him.

"It's a move that can't go wrong and I'm looking forward to playing in Baltimore as the Ravens run the same or very similar defense as I was a part of at the University of Alabama," he told Madison Weekly News.

"Ray Lewis retired after winning the Super Bowl and I look to fill his slot. No one can fill his shoes, but I can fill his slot. I just want to fill out the shoes of Rolando McClain. This is a perfect fit for me personally."

McClain made 62 combined tackles for the Raiders last season.
