ILB Jameel McClain has taken a $1.5 million dollar paycut from the Baltimore Ravens. McClain has been recovering from a spinal cord injury and had been placed on the Active/PUP list by the Ravens at the start of training camp. McClain was expected to be a starter this season but with health questions and a relatively tight salary cap figure the Ravens likely identified him as a perfect candidate for a renegotiated contract with his status for the year up in the air.
At this time I don’t know if they added any incentives to his contract or guaranteed his salary for the season. If I find out any more details on the contract I’ll update this post. The Ravens now have around $5.5 million in cap space.
