McClain Receives $23 Million Guaranteed

Raiders first-round draft pick Rolando McClain signed a five-year $40 million contract with about $23 million in guarantees.

McClain should arrive in time to participate in camp activities today.

Al Davis has a long history of getting his picks signed on time. The only rare exception is JaMarcus Russell, a deal Davis didn’t negotiate until the final week of the holdout.

The deal is just $500,000 less in guaranteed money than last year’s selection, Darrius Heyward-Bey.
