Le’Ron McClain Set to Move On from the Ravens

Free agent fullback Le’Ron McClain wants to be more involved in the offense, and is prepared to do that with a team other than the Ravens, writes Jamison Hensley of The Baltimore Sun.

“I just want to take my game to another level. No disrespect to anybody, not (offensive coordinator) Cam (Cameron), not John Harbaugh, not Ray Rice or Willis (McGahee),” said McClain. “I just don’t want to disrespect my game anymore, like I feel like I’ve done these last two years.”

A fourth-round pick out of Alabama in 2007, the 6-foot, 260-pound McClain led the Ravens in 2008 with 902 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground, earning the first of his two Pro Bowls. With the emergence of Ray Rice at running back, McClain has gone back to a more traditional fullback role, carrying the ball 74 times for 285 yards with two touchdowns, and adding 42 receptions for 275 yards over the last two seasons.

Last offseason, McClain started a Twitter campaign called “McClain 4 RB”, which even spawned a fansite.

“I had my game put in a box for the past three years because I couldn’t show too much,” McClain said. “I want to get my chance. Hopefully it’s with the Ravens. If not, I’m prepared for the transformation.”
