Free agent linebacker Jameel McClain was in New York on Wednesday to meet with the Bills and he’s now on his way to meet with a team that calls itself New York while playing their games in New Jersey.

Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 reports that McClain said that he was headed to meet with the Giants after wrapping up his visit with Buffalo. Those are the first two visits that McClain has made since being cut by the Ravens late last week.

The Giants are reportedly pushing to re-sign linebacker Jon Beason, who played well after they acquired him in a trade early last season. McClain could be an option if the team is unable to reach an agreement with Beason or they could be looking at him as an option for one of the other linebacking spots. Keith Rivers is set to become a free agent although restricted free agent-to-be Spencer Paysinger will likely return.

McClain is free to sign with any team at anytime, an advantage he’ll hold over other free agents until next Tuesday.
