Ryan McBean DL BAL 11 Months

Free agent DT Ryan McBean visited the Chiefs Monday.

McBean spent all of last season on injured reserve after breaking his left ankle during a preseason game. The fracture was bad enough that he needed surgery. McBean is still just 29, so he'll get some sniffs around the league if he can prove his health.

Ravens signed DE Ryan McBean, formerly of the Broncos.

A restricted free agent, McBean was originally tendered at the original-round level by Denver, but had his tender rescinded last month. A 2007 fourth-round pick, McBean tallied his first four career sacks last season, but was handed a six-game ban for violating the league's PED policy in March. He's a depth signing for a Ravens' line that could be without Terrell Suggs all season.

Broncos rescinded restricted free agent DE Ryan McBean's original-round tender.

The move makes McBean a free agent. A fourth-round pick of the Steelers in 2007, McBean tallied his first four career sacks last season, but is facing a six-game suspension for violating the league's policy on PEDs. He has appealed the decision. McBean was also arrested on stalking charges last October. His off-the-field issues and limited history of production will make McBean radioactive on the open market.

He won't be available until either Week 7 or 8 of the 2012 season, depending on Denver's bye. McBean, 28, quietly led all Broncos defensive linemen with four sacks last season. He is an impending restricted free agent, and the level of the tender Denver assigns McBean may be affected by the suspension.
