If the Baltimore Ravens cannot figure out a way to retain free agent fullback LeRon McClain, the Kansas City Chiefs might be more than willing to take him off of our hands. Thinking of pairing him with RB Jamaal Charles, McClain would be a solid one-two punch for the Chiefs an would also save wear and tear on the smaller but shiftier Charles.
In a story by Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times, referenced by SB Nation, it is reported that McClain will not be pursued by the Ravens, thus letting him test the free agent market. The Chiefs do have a FB on the team, but the combination of McClain outside and Charles inside fits rght into their offense, who focuses on the run setting up QB Matt Cassel for the pass.
The loss of McClain along with RB Willis McGahee will leave huge holes to fill in the Ravens rush offense. However, starter Ray Rice still will continue to get the bulk of the carries, but the team remains undecided who will complement Rice and spell him enough to limit the beating he could take as a full-time featured back in the Ravens offense.
