Ravens sign fullback, waive Hamlin

The Ravens made a roster move today, signing veteran fullback Jason McKie and releasing safety Ken Hamlin, general manager Ozzie Newsome announced.

The move comes two days after fullback Le'Ron McClain suffered a left ankle sprain against the Bucs. Coach John Harbaugh declined to reveal the severity of the injury in his Monday news conference, but said on his weekly WBAL radio show Tuesday that McClain still might play against the Steelers on Sunday.

"We'll find out as we go," Harbaugh said about the role he foresees for McKie. "Le'Ron may still be playing. We'll get Jason involved … We'll see how much he can learn, and whatever he feels good about, that'll be part of his game plan."

McKie, 30, spent seven seasons with the Bears and played in 88 games. He had 11 starts in 16 games last season for the Bears before being released in March. He signed with the Saints in May, played three preseason games and was cut in September. He is 5-11 and 247 pounds.

Born in Gulf Breeze, Fla., McKie played at Temple and, as an undrafted free agent, signed with the Eagles in 2002. He spent most of 2002 on Philadelphia's practice squad, then went on the Cowboys' active roster in December of 2002. He was cut in Dallas' camp the following August.

It's the second time this season the Ravens have cut Hamlin.
