Former Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain has agreed to a deal with the Baltimore Ravens, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Before the contract is formalized on Friday, McClain is required to pass a physical and meet with general manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh regarding their expectations.
McClain told a newspaper in Alabama on Wednesday that he expects to sign a one-year deal with the Ravens.
"It's a move that can't go wrong and I'm looking forward to playing in Baltimore as the Ravens run the same or very similar defense as I was a part of at the University of Alabama," he told the Madison (Ala.) Weekly News.
"Ray Lewis retired after winning the Super Bowl and I look to fill his slot," McClain told the newspaper. "No one can fill his shoes, but I can fill his slot. I just want to fill out the shoes of Rolando McClain. This is a perfect fit for me personally."
