Le'Ron McClain's Deal With Chiefs Sounds Like A Win-Win

The Kansas City Chiefs made a mini-splash in the free agency pool today by agreeing to terms with former Baltimore Ravens FB Le'Ron McClain, as reported by the KC Star's Adam Teicher. The Chiefs committed to him for the 2011 season -- and that's it.

For now, at least, as Aaron Wilson of FOX Sports reports it's a one-year contract with the team.

Interesting that it's a one-year deal. He had been on the market for over a week and there hadn't been any significant reported interest from other teams so, to me, that suggests that the Chiefs probably got a better deal by waiting.

This is how I could envision this thing working out: McClain comes in and has a solid season for the Chiefs, his contract comes up after the year and he can re-enter free agency on a high note. It also gives the Chiefs a chance to see him up close to determine if they want to extend the contract beyond 2011.

The Chiefs get a good player next season (and maybe beyond) and McClain moves back into free agency quickly -- sounds like a win-win.
