Chiefs Host Free Agent Ryan McBean

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs are still searching the free agency bargain bin in an attempt to improve their roster.

According to the Baltimore Sun, the Chiefs hosted free agent defensive lineman Ryan McBean on Monday.

You may remember McBean as a former Denver Bronco.

From the Sun:

McBean spent last season on the Ravens’ injured reserve list after breaking his left ankle in a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons and undergoing surgery to repair the damage.

The Ravens didn’t sign McBean to a new contract as an unrestricted free agent after his one-year, $1.214 million contract expired. During free agency, the Ravens signed a pair of veteran defensive linemen in Chris Canty and Marcus Spears.

McBean, 29, is a former Pittsburgh Steelers fourth-round draft pick who has recorded 77 career tackles and four sacks.

McBea’s last season in Denver did not go well. He started for the Donkey’s, playing over 700 snaps. Pro Football Focus graded him a -21.9 on the season. He wasn’t much better in 2010, scoring a -17.9 grade in 447 snaps.

McBean seems to have some pass rushing ability but he doesn’t appear to be a player the Chiefs will want starting for them. Still, the Chiefs need depth on their defensive line and if healthy and utilized properly, McBean could be a sub-package contributor.

What do you think, Addicts? Do you want the Chiefs to sign McBean?

    Sounds terrible…
    But I never woulda thought so looking at Denver’s defense. They must be planning on using him On ST otherwise I don’t understand what they see in him.

      Could be training camp fodder or “swag” opportunity.
      Got to wish they were beating the bushes for WRs, there is not much on the roster after Bowe.

        Donnie is the real deal… Go ahead and print screen this now and remember these words!

    What about Allen Bailey??? He had so much promise and last year-nothing-. I hope they utilize his freakish ability this year!

    McBean, is a great player from Denver, wow he played for 700 snaps, he is a great pass rusher, and would be a great lineman for the Chiefs.

    He has built himself to be a great player, starting from the practice squad. If healthy he can have a break out year with the Chiefs.
