Raiders middle linebacker Rolando McClain emerged from the locker room at the team's Alameda headquarters and gave a 36-second statement regarding his legal issues:
"I'm aware of the bad publicity that I've given the Raiders. I've talked to coach Allen, I have the support of the Raiders, my teammates, as well as the coaching staff. I apologize for the bad publicity that's been put out there, but I mean, it is a legal process so I can't talk much about it. But I think in due time, the Raiders and the Raider fans that are out there, it is what it is, I can't really talk much about it. But it will be resolved in the near future."
McClain took no questions. The statement took place after McClain took part in the Raiders' organized team activity for a second consecutive day. He is awaiting appeal on his conviction last week in Decatur, Ala., for assault, reckless endangerment, illegal discharge of a firearm and menacing in a Nov. 30 incident.
