Raiders LB Rolando McClain Sentenced to 180 Days in Jail

 Earlier today, Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain was sentenced to 180 days in prison. The 22-year-old, along with co-defendant Jerradius Willingham, assaulted 30-year-old Rishard Tapscott on Nov. 30 at an unidentified house, leaving Tapscott with a broken nose, mild concussion and broken ribs. The former Alabama standout allegedly pulled out a gun at one point and threatened to kill Tapscott. Later on, McClain reportedly fired off a shot while holding the gun extremely close to Tapscott's ear. There has been no ruling on whether Rolando will be able to serve his sentence after the upcoming NFL season. It is also unclear whether McClain will face displinary action from commissioner Goodell, but I'm pretty sure we know the answer to that one.
