A week before the Ravens’ home game against the Denver Broncos, Albert McClellan was a free agent. In Sunday’s 27-14 victory, the inside linebacker was a starter.
With three-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker C.J. Mosley missing a game for the first time since 2016 because of a bone bruise in his left knee, McClellan joined rookie Kenny Young to fill the interior portion of the defense’s linebacker corps and finished with one tackle in his first start since Dec. 18, 2016.
“I can’t tell you how great it was,” he said afterward. “I had a little rust to shake off, a couple of those plays in the beginning, but it all worked out well.”
