LB Jameel McClain to Visit New York Giants: Linebacker Jameel McClain, who was released by the Baltimore Ravens in February, says he is scheduled to visit with the New York Giants. McLain just completed a visit with the Buffalo Bills.
“(The meeting with the Bills) is the first visit and then I go to the Giants,” said McClain. “I’ve got more (visits) scheduled, but I tell my agent to tell me the day before. I don’t want to be wrapping my mind around too many ideas. I’m more like a get the information and go guy.”
In six seasons with the Ravens, the 28-year old McClain has started 55 regular-season games. Fifty-four of those starts came within the last four seasons. He has experience playing both at inside and outside linebacker. McClain is 6’1” and 245 pounds and played his college football at Syracuse. He was considered a solid starter, special teams player, and leader in Baltimore but was set to make $3.2 million in the last year of his contract before the Ravens cut him.
