    Re: Le'Ron McClain Returns to Baltimore



    No. Regretfully. No. Hopes he lands a job somewhere.

    This. Unless one of our FB's go down with an injury during camp, he won't be here. However, I'm sure Oz has his number on speed dial, just in case.

    Given the position he plays that a very slim chance. If you needed a FB right now would you sign McClain or Leach?

    Depends on what type of FB Kubiak is looking for. McClain may offer a bit more flexibility in this offense? I know Kubiak has some history with Leach so maybe that would influence his choice.

    Very slim indeed where the Ravens are concerned. But I'm thinking in terms of the whole league.

    I would argue that McClain vs. Leach is not necessarily an apples-to-apples comparison. Leach is your classic blocking fullback, who's had only 35 carries his entire NFL career. McClain has had 354 career carries - 10 times the number of Leach. Although he's been used as a FB, McClain is really more of a FB/RB hybrid. Better runner than Leach, but not as good a blocker.

    In any case, I'm assuming McClain would be willing to play for any NFL team. I don't think it's out of the question that one or more teams could have RB injuries in camp, and consider bringing in McClain for depth if nothing else. Of course, it would depend on their particular schemes/needs.
