As it appears that the 2011 NFL will go on as scheduled, the one thing that is sure to be hectic is the rush to sign free agents once the labor dispute is finally settled. Teams will struggle to decide which f their own free agents to try to retain, then determine whether to target the other veteran free agents or the undrafted college kids to fill out their rosters in time for training camp to begin only a week or so later.

The Baltimore Ravens stand to lose two of their top three rushers in both Willis McGahee and LeRon McClain. While McGahee may be released because his contract is just way to big for the team to justify, McClain will be a attractive option on the open market and might price himself out of the Ravens range. However, McClain would prefer to be able to work something out to remain with the team.

From a story by Aaron Wilson in the Carroll County Times, McClain says he has been working out in preparation to face the "Owings Mills (Maryland) heat," although he realizes that the NFL is a business and he will play for whatever team wants him the most. Most Ravens fans think LeRon is as good as gone, but his desire to remain a Raven means there is still a glimmer of hope to at least keep one of the two backs with the team for 2011.
