McClain not shown ' The Love' in Denver


Recommended Posts

The facility was a ghost town for his visit....


While the Broncos’ brass _ most notably front office boss John Elway, head coach John Fox and general manager Brian Xanders, along with offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and quarterbacks coach Adam Gase _ was in Durham, N.C. today watching Peyton Manning throw, the team hosted three defensive free agents at their Dove Valley headquarters.

Outside linebacker Geno Hayes, a starter the previous three years with the Tampa Bay Bucs; inside linebacker Jameel McClain, a two-year starter for the Baltimore Ravens; and cornerback Marcus Trufant, a nine-year starter for the Seattle Seahawks, were given physicals today and met with the defensive coaching staff.

New defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio is an experienced host in the free-agent process as he spent the previous nine years as head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Broncos were not expected to sign any of those free agents before they left town



The Ravens need to bring him back. The D was fine with him and Ellerbe while Ray was out.

He will probably sign with us for a Bart Scott-type of deal when Bart signed with us the first time he hit free agency in 2005. Like McClain, Scott was an undrafted free agent who played four seasons with us. Scott's deal was three-years for $13.5 with a $6.5 million guaranteed bonus. Additionally, Denver just re-signed linebacker Joe Mays to a three-year, $12 million ($4.5 million guaranteed) instead of signing McClain. With the top ILB's still on the market (Tulloch, Lofton, Hawthorne), not to mention a pretty solid MLB draft class coming up, McClain has very little leverage at this point.
