STATS, LLC PLAYER NEWS

McClain, Rolando (LB)

Posted April 12, 2013 @ 7:09 p.m.
McClain has signed a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens.
The 6-foot-4, 259-pound McClain spent three years with Oakland after being selected eighth overall in the 2010 NFL draft. In 41 career games, he has 274 tackles, 6 1/2 sacks and one interception. He has a chance to take over for Ray Lewis, who retired after 17 seasons.

McClain, Rolando (LB)

Posted April 05, 2013 @ 3:55 p.m.
The Oakland Raiders have waived McClain less than three years after drafting him eighth overall.
McClain is the third player drafted in the top 10 by late owner Al Davis to be let go so far this offseason by second-year general manager Reggie McKenzie. Defensive back Michael Huff (seventh pick in 2006) and receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (seventh pick in `09) were cut last month.

Thompson, Christian (S)

Posted April 01, 2013 @ 2:11 p.m.
Thompson has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2013 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
The 6-foot, 211-pound Thompson will be eligible to return to the Ravens' active roster on the day after the team's fourth regular-season game. He is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.

Huff, Michael (S)

Posted March 27, 2013 @ 12:47 p.m.
The Baltimore Ravens agreed to a three-year deal with Huff.
Huff started all 16 games for Oakland last season - 14 at cornerback and two at free safety. He had 71 tackles and two interceptions. He has 11 career interceptions and 453 tackles in 108 games.

Dumervil, Elvis (DE)

Posted March 24, 2013 @ 4:18 p.m.
Dumervil has spurred the Denver Broncos for Baltimore, agreeing to a five-year deal, Ravens general manger Ozzie Newsome announced Sunday.
Dumervil, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, is expected to be in Baltimore Tuesday to take his physical and sign the paperwork. Broncos football operations chief John Elway issued a statement Sunday saying the Broncos "worked diligently over the last week" to re-sign Dumervil but "are now moving forward without him."

Dumervil, Elvis (DE)

Posted March 20, 2013 @ 6:49 p.m.
The Denver Broncos are set to talk with free agent pass rushers Dwight Freeney and John Abraham on Thursday, 48 hours after they submitted a new contract proposal to Dumervil.
Freeney, 33, and Abraham, 34, are both older and less productive than Dumervil, 29, but might make financial sense for the Broncos, who had to cut Dumervil last week to avoid paying him $12 million in 2013. Dumervil's then-agent Marty Magid and the Broncos renegotiated a three-year, $30 million deal Friday that included an $8 million 2013 salary, but the paperwork didn't get done in time.

Dumervil, Elvis (DE)

Posted March 16, 2013 @ 10:43 p.m.
Dumervil has parted ways with his agent after a paperwork mix-up forced the Denver Broncos to waive him instead of signing him to an $8 million contract.
Dumervil and the Broncos had come to an agreement Friday for the defensive lineman to take a $4 million pay cut. But Dumervil's agent, Marty Magid, didn't fax the signed contract to the Broncos in time to meet Friday's 1:59 p.m. deadline and the Broncos cut Dumervil so they wouldn't be on the hook for the $12 million they owed him in the original contract.

Spears, Marcus (DE)

Posted March 16, 2013 @ 9:10 a.m.
Spears has agreed to a two-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens.
Although the Super Bowl champions have lost several key players during free agency, they've enhanced their defensive line by signing Chris Canty and Spears, who has 89 starts over his NFL career.

Dumervil, Elvis (DE)

Posted March 15, 2013 @ 3:05 p.m.
Dumervil found himself out of a job and the Broncos were without their best defensive end Friday afternoon after they reached an agreement on a new contract, but saw it all come undone when tardy filing of the paperwork forced Denver to release him.
A wild set of events that was a fiasco involving John Elway caused Dumervil to not join the Broncos. Dumervil is now a free agent, dumped late onto a market where one top defensive end, Cliff Avril, just signed a two-year deal with Seattle worth an average of $7.5 million a year. Dumervil was second on the Broncos with 11 sacks last season. He led the league with 17 in 2009 and received a six-year, $61.5 million contract in 2010.

Canty, Chris (DT)

Posted March 12, 2013 @ 8:07 p.m.
The Baltimore Ravens have signed Canty, who spent the previous four seasons with the New York Giants. Canty announced the signing Tuesday on Instagram with a photo of the signed contract, according to the Ravens website.
The 30-year-old Canty was released in February by the Giants. The 6-foot-7, 317-pounder was a starter the last four years in New York, but he missed seven games in 2012 with a knee injury. He finished with 26 tackles and three sacks.
