At about the same time the Chiefs were adding running back Peyton Hillis, Chiefs running back Le’Ron McClain was making plans to stay in the division.
McClain has agreed to terms with the Chargers on a three-year deal, a league source tells PFT.
McClain spent one season in Kansas City after four in Baltimore. Primarily a fullback, McClain rushed for 902 yards in 2008, his second NFL season.
Last year, he had 29 total touches in 16 games.
It’ll be interesting to see whether the Chargers give him more touches, or expect him to block for guys like Ryan Mathews.
