It sure looks like Rolando McClain’s once promising NFL career is now over. Suspended indefinitely by the league last year after violating its substance abuse policy, McClain finds himself in hot water once again.

This time, is comes in the form of another run-in with the law.

According to the Hartselle Police Department in Alabama, McClain was arrested Friday after being pulled over for a routine traffic stop. Authorities then allegedly found McClain in possession of a firearm without a permit and marijuana. The initial stop stemmed from the former Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys linebacker driving with tinted windows

“McClain was charged with second-degree possession of marijuana, carrying a firearm without a permit and a misdemeanor equipment violation,” the Decatur Daily reported on Friday. “McClain was being held in the Morgan County Jail in lieu of $2,000 bail.”

McClain, a former first-round pick of the Raiders back in 2010, did not play last season following the NFL-mandated suspension. That came immediately on the heels of Dallas re-signing the linebacker to a one-year, $5 million deal.

McClain’s previous off-field issues include accusations of assault back in 2011, resisting arrest charges in 2013 and multiple violations of the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
