Veteran free agent defensive lineman Ryan McBean visited the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, according to a source.
McBean spent last season on the Ravens' injured reserve list after breaking his left ankle in a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons and undergoing surgery to repair the damage.
The Ravens didn't sign McBean to a new contract as an unrestricted free agent after his one-year, $1.214 million contract expired. During free agency, the Ravens signed a pair of veteran defensive linemen in Chris Canty and Marcus Spears.
McBean, 29, is a former Pittsburgh Steelers fourth-round draft pick who has recorded 77 career tackles and four sacks.
The 6-foot-5, 305-pound former Denver Broncos starter told The Baltimore Sun last season that he was making excellent progress in his rehabilitation.
"I'm working hard, the rehab is going great," said McBean, who had metal hardware inserted into his ankle by Dr. Robert Anderson to aid the healing process. "I can move the ankle some. I'm strengthening it. The only thing is it's a slow process. I can't rush anything. It's going good, though. The surgery went great. I can't rush anything. It's good, though."
