Free agent ILB Jameel McClain will visit the Giants.
McClain is visiting the Bills on Wednesday but plans to make the trip east to the Meadowlands. The soon-to-be 29-year-old played all over the second level of the defense for the Ravens during his time with Baltimore. He'd ideally play the middle. If the Giants re-sign free agent MLB Jon Beason, McClain could play outside.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, free agent ILB Jameel McClain is set to visit the Bills on Wednesday.
Rapoport added McClain has other visits scheduled as well. McClain came back from a spinal injury in 2012 to play 10 games for the Ravens last season. He has never been an above average linebacker, but has 55 games of starting experience and should not break the bank. McClain is our No. 11 free agent inside linebacker.

Ravens informed ILB Jameel McClain of his release.
According to reporter Jeff Zrebiec, FB Vonta Leach will also be cut loose. Both players had already been identified as candidates for release. The moves clear approximately $4.95 million in cap space. McClain put 10 ordinary games on film last season after returning from a spinal cord injury, but has 55 games of starting experience. He's unlikely to draw interest as a starter in the first wave of free agency, but could be viewed as a cheaper option once the big names are signed. McClain has never graded out positively as a starter in Pro Football Focus' ratings.

The Ravens are expected to release ILB Jameel McClain.
Baltimore would clear $3.2 million in cap space by releasing McClain. McClain suffered a spinal cord injury in Week 14 of the 2012 season but was activated in October and made ten starts for the Ravens, registering 52 tackles. However, he's not a playmaker, and the Ravens have 2013 second-round pick Arthur Brown waiting in the wings at inside linebacker.

Playing for the first time since sustaining a spinal cord injury in Week 14 of last season, McClain had six tackles in Week 7. He's come out of the bye healthy and will start ahead of Josh Bynes. Expect some kind of rotation initially.

Ravens ILB Jameel McClain (neck, PUP) returned to practice Wednesday.
McClain was cleared to resume practicing for the first time since suffering a spinal cord injury in Week 14 of last season. A three-year starter, he'll likely be returning to a situational role if he's added to the active roster. "We're going to practice McClain today," coach John Harbaugh said. "Do not know what that means for this week, next week, or the week after. We have to make a decision about whether we put him on the 53-man roster. So we'll just have to see how it goes."
