The Ravens have signed FB Jason McKie and waived FS Ken Hamlin.

With starting FB Le'Ron McClain recovering from an ankle injury, the team felt it needed to add more depth in the backfield. McKie, a seven-year vet, played the past six seasons for the Bears. He was cut by the Saints in training camp.

Hamlin played in seven games this season but made a minimal impact, recording only three tackles and one interception.

The way we see it
McKie may not be on the roster long, depending on how quickly McClain can heal from the injury. The Ravens have a huge game vs. the Steelers on Sunday and didn't want to be without a key blocker to protect QB Joe Flacco.
