After seemingly staying quiet during the first forty-eight hours of free agency, the Denver Broncos may be on the verge of making some splashes.  Tomorrow, the team will bring in free agent inside linebacker Jameel McClain for a visit.

McClain, 25, has started the last two seasons in Baltimore and has 201 career tackles and 4.5 sacks since he entered the league in 2008.  If Denver is smart, they will not let McClain leave Dove Valley without a contract, as inside linebacker has been a position of need for the Broncos for quite some time.

At 6-1, 245 pounds, McClain is a versatile player who has spent the previous four seasons on an aggressive Ravens defense.  If Denver were to sign McClain, paired up with second-year linebacker Von Miller, the Broncos would have two young, talented linebackers moving forward.

Broncos, get this done!  McClain would be a huge signing for the team and frankly, we could use some good news around here.
