Baltimore Ravens re-sign linebacker Albert McClellan

Great depth signing for the Ravens

With Free Agency creeping up, the Baltimore Ravens got their guy... sort of. This isn't Kelechi Osemele, but instead a depth linebacker Albert McClellan.

Great news for the Ravens. A strong talented back with great special teams talent. No team can be 53 pro-bowl talent. But every team needs the depth signings and Baltimore has done exactly that.

Undrafted in 2010 McClellan fought for a roster spot, and has come up strong. Since 2010 he has been a piece of the Baltimore Ravens squad, and achieved yet another contract.

McClellan's career has been very consistent, with one burst year. Mainly Albert has been a vital cog to the special teams unit, and most tackles are acquired during kick-offs. The averages for McClellan is around 15.5 tackles a season. 2012 changes those numbers though.

Back in 2012 McClellan was relied upon more. Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs both out with injuries forced him to become more defensively involved. In that season, McClellan had 49 tackles and one sack.

This is great, homegrown built up depth that the Ravens are known for. Undrafted or low drafted defensive players whom continue to grow and progress and stick with the team. Great signing for the Ravens.

Big question now, is this the end of the Arthur Brown experiment?
