Raiders MLB Rolando McClain reportedly wrote on his Facebook page that he is no longer a Raider.

The eighth overall pick of the 2010 draft, McClain was held out of practice for a “team-related issue.” The Raiders have not announced that McClain has been released. He cannot technically be waived until Thursday.

According to reports, McClain wrote, “Officially no longer an Oakland Raider!!” and “I’d like to be anywhere besides here.”

In 11 games and nine starts this season McClain has 60 tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. Earlier this month, misdemeanor assault and firearms charges against McClain were dropped. McClain was arrested for allegedly holding a gun beside a man’s head.

McClain’s agent, Pat Dye, told USA Today’s Mike Garafolo that he has not been "notified of any change in (McClain’s) status" ith the club.
