NFL Free Agency Rumors: Signals Pointing To Le'Ron McClain Signing With Kansas City Chiefs

If you read the tea leaves, or rather Twitter feeds, on Le’Ron McClain’s account, you might just be convinced that the Kansas City Chiefs have an announcement to make today. That’s because McClain, the celebrated Ravens fullback, is a free agent and available to sign with anyone. But last night, McClain’s Twitter account suddenly started to follow Chiefs PR as well as players like Jamaal Charles and Steve Breaston.

If McClain were to join the Chiefs vaunted running attack, it only bolsters what we’ve already been writing about for some time — namely, that it’s hard to picture the best getting better but a great fullback will do just that. The release of Brian Waters, the possible transition to Rodney Hudson at center, the loss of Charlie Weis and the PUP listing of Tony Moeaki all make for some shaky ground to some degree. The addition of McClain would serve to ease that tension considerably.

The fullback was a Pro Bowl and All-Pro Selection in both 2008 and 2009, and the Chiefs have to believe that several more could be added to that number starting this year. After all, running in front of the league’s best running game will do that for you.

The announcement has yet to come, but it seems a likely possibility McClain’s sudden interest in hearing the Chiefs official announcements and being able to communicate with some of these Chiefs best offensive players.
