McClellan is expected to sign with the Patriots on Tuesday, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports. The Ravens released McClellan after acquiring Ty Montgomery, though it appears the linebacker won't be jobless for long. McClellan has 169 tackles and three sacks in his career, and will likely provide depth to New England's linebacker corps.
McClellan was released by the Ravens on Tuesday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. McClellan was the odd-man out after Baltimore acquired Ty Montgomery from the Packers in exchange for a 2020 seventh-round draft pick on Tuesday afternoon. The 32-year-old linebacker posted three tackles during limited playing time this season, and he'll look to join a team searching for linebacker depth.
McClellan was released by the Ravens on Saturday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports. McClellan's release comes as a bit of a surprise after he started at middle linebacker during the Ravens' third preseason tilt, though he was slated to provide C.J. Mosley with depth throughout the regular season. A season-ending knee injury cost the 32-year-old his 2017 campaign, but he racked up 55 tackles on 603 defensive snaps in 2016.
McClellan (knee) was on the field for Wednesday's minicamp practice, freelance NFL writer Jeff Zrebiec reports. McClellan is working his way back from a torn ACL that he suffered last August. Given his participation Wednesday, there's a good chance the linebacker will be fully cleared for the start of training camp.
The Ravens ruled out cornerback Tramain Jacobs (thigh) out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He was the only player on Baltimore's final injury report ruled out for Week 14. Wide receiver Michael Campanaro (thigh), running back Justin Forsett (knee), tight end Crockett Gilmore (back) and linebacker Albert McClellan (thigh) were all deemed questionable. Forsett returned to practice Friday and is expected to play. Meanwhile, the following players were ruled probable: Wide receiver Marlon Brown (concussion), tight end Owen Daniels (rest), linebacker C.J. Mosley (wrist), linebacker Daryl Smith (rest), wide receiver Torrey Smith (knee), linebacker Terrell Suggs (rest), defensive tackle DeAngelo Tyson (rest), linebacker Courtney Upshaw (hand) and center Jeremy Zuttah (ankle).
