Rolando McClain's comeback attempt was short-lived.

The enigmatic linebacker, who was activated off the reserve-retired list by the Baltimore Ravens last week, has decided to retire for good, according to a report from ESPN.

“I gotta follow my heart. It ain't football. If football made me complete I would play. But whenever I think of it my heart pulls me away from whatever reason. ... This means I'm done,” McClain texted ESPN.com Monday.

McClain had a turbulent start to his comeback attempt, arriving late for a workout with the Ravens earlier last week before failing to complete conditioning tests, according to reports.

A top 10 pick by the Oakland Raiders in the 2010 NFL Draft, McClain was widely considered a bust during his time with the team. The Raiders released the Alabama product after three seasons and three arrests in an 11-month span. The Ravens signed McClain to a low risk contract prior to last season, when he retired for the first time.
