NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that the Denver Broncos will host free agent linebacker Jameel McClain for a visit on Friday.
McClain, 26, broke into the league as an undrafted free agent out of Syracuse in 2008. He’s been a starting linebacker for the Ravens for the past two seasons.
McClain isn’t going to unseat Von Miller or D.J. Williams for a starting job in Denver, but he could be an option at middle linebacker. Incumbent starter Joe Mays is a free agent.
While 2011 third-round pick Nate Irving is the leading candidate to succeed Mays, McClain could provide veteran competition.
