The Ravens backfield will probably look a lot different next year.
Backup running back Willis McGahee appears to be on his way out unless he takes a paycut from his $6 million salary.
Two time Pro Bowl fullback Le’Ron McClain is also headed for free agency if we don’t go back to 2010 league rules. Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun writes that McClain is “not expected to return” to the Ravens.
McClain has somewhat jokingly pushed for more carries in recent years and should get a nice contract for any team looking for a lead blocker. We wouldn’t totally rule out a return for McClain in Baltimore, if only because the Ravens may not want to have to fill two big jobs via free agency.
Getting a veteran backup to replace McGahee shouldn’t be so difficult in a buyer’s market.
