The New England Patriots aren’t done trying to improve their defense as the team announced that they are signing former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Albert McClellan.
Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic confirmed the news via his Twitter account this evening.
McClellan expected to sign with Patriots tomorrow, per source. Ravens wanted him back but they didn’t feel like they had roster flexibility last wk with their injury situation. And McClellan wasn’t going to wait around forever With other teams interested. https://t.co/fOtYfsiaGq
