Wake-up caw: Jameel McClain takes visit

Inside linebacker Jameel McClain will meet with the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday, according to the NFL Network.

This marks McClain's first visit since being cut by the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday. The Ravens created $3.2 million by cutting the four-year starter. McClain reportedly has other visits scheduled.

At inside linebacker, the Ravens have made it a priority to re-sign Daryl Smith and are hoping Arthur Brown steps up in a starting role.

Here's the rest of your wake-up caw:

  • The Ravens are unlikely to get a deal done with offensive tackle Eugene Monroe before the start of free agency next week, according to The Carroll County Times. This isn't a surprise because Monroe was expected to test the market. He could end up returning to Baltimore.

  • Re-signing Monroe remains the Ravens' best option at left tackle, according to John Eisenberg of the team's official website. "Another free agent would be similarly expensive and not necessarily better," Eisenberg wrote. "The best starting-caliber tackles are liable to be off the draft board by the time the Ravens pick. [Michael] Oher was better on the right side. [Kelechi] Osemele is coming off back surgery."

  • Clifton Brown, of Comcast SportsNet, wonders if free-agent wide receiver Golden Tate is on the Ravens' radar. "Tate could be a nice fit, joining wide receiver Torrey Smith and tight end Dennis Pitta as Joe Flacco’s primary targets," Brown wrote. "However both Tate and the Ravens will have options. The Ravens may target another free agent wide receiver like Hakeem Nicks, or perhaps they will draft a receiver in the first round."
