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 spent the offseason with the Ravens before being waived prior to the start of the regular season. His signing comes on the heels of C.J. Mosley (knee) suffering an injury that could sideline him for some time. Look for McClellan to operate as a depth linebacker for the time being.
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 started at middle linebacker during Saturday's 27-10 preseason win over the Dolphins.
He played 18 defensive snaps in the contest and didn't make a tackle. McClellan's preseason start shouldn't be read into, as C.J. Mosley will still have the reins at inside linebacker when the regular season kicks off.
