Baltimore Ravens linebacker Rolando McClain, who abruptly retired on Wednesday, has shed some light on what led him to make the unexpected decision. After three arrests in less than a year and a half, McClain decided it was time to get his ‘personal life together.’

“Clearly, my decision to retire has raised some questions,” McClain said in a statement. “Quite simply, I love football, but I have decided at this time it is in my best interest to focus on getting my personal life together. Beyond that, I am not sure what the future holds for me, including football. This was entirely my decision and the Ravens have been very supportive during this process. I am very grateful for the opportunity they gave me and wish them the best of luck in the future. God willing, maybe I’ll play for them one day.”
