Report: Le'Ron McClain To The Kansas City Chiefs

After touching base with Le'Ron McClain's camp earlier this week, the Kansas City Chiefs have decided to ink him to a deal. Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star reports McClain agreed to terms with the Chiefs.

I wish I could re-run our poll on the Chiefs free agency grade because I think the grade might be going.

McClain comes to the Chiefs from the Baltimore Ravens who picked him up in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL draft. In four years with the Ravens, he's rushed for 1,185 yards including a career-high 902 yards on 232 carries in 2008. He was a Pro Bowler in 2008 and 2009.

He started a campaign in Baltimore to get himself some more carries so it'll be interesting to see how he fits into the Chiefs offense. Right now, the backfield primarily includes RB Jamaal Charles, RB Thomas Jones and possibly WR/RB Dexter McCluster.

FB Mike Cox and rookie FB Shane Bannon are the two fullbacks on the team so we'll see if the Chiefs keep them or move on.

And, judging by the picture above shot during the Ravens-Chiefs playoff game, McClain already knows how to celebrate in Kansas City.
