Free agent FB Le'Ron McClain was arrested on felony drug trafficking charges in Alabama on Wednesday.
McClain was arrested in Tuscaloosa after police previously found 122 grams of synthetic marijuana on him in a prior investigation. The police issued a warrant for McClain's arrest Wednesday and booked him in jail on $500,000 bond. McClain, 30 next month, was released by the Chargers last March. Sun, Nov 9, 2014 09:22:00 AM

Free agent FB Le'Ron McClain expects to sign with a team before training camp.

McClain said he's been training regularly since his release from the Chargers in March. He's reportedly shed 15 pounds and remains committed to playing this season. 29-year-old McClain graded out as a top-15 lead blocker by Pro Football Focus in 2013. He will only require a veteran-minimum deal.

Chargers released FB Le'Ron McClain.

McClain was set to count over $3 million against the cap in the final year of his contract. The Bolts save $2.5 million with the move. In coach Mike McCoy's first year running the offense, McClain, 29, saw his snaps reduced significantly. It was an easy call for GM Tom Telesco. Due to his still relatively young age and just one career game missed, McClain is now the top free agent lead blocker. He can also handle the rock. It's a position that isn't used much anymore.

Chargers FB Le'Ron McClain is a candidate to be released.

McClain is due a non-guaranteed $2.5 million in 2014, the final year of his contract. With the Chargers a bit over the salary cap, it should be an easy decision to cut ties with McClain after he played 12 percent of the offensive snaps this past season. The 29-year-old is still one of the NFL's better lead blockers.

Chargers FB Le'Ron McClain was forced from Sunday's game against the Broncos with an ankle injury, and will not return.

An extremely banged up Chargers offensive line is now without its lead blocker in the run game. Getting ruled out so quickly suggests McClain is dealing with a high-ankle sprain.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 06:43:00 PM

Coach Norv Turner indicated that he expects FB Le'Ron McClain to get touches on offense in addition to his lead-blocking duties.

McClain is a better lead blocker than tailback, but he could end up ranking second in the Chargers' backfield in touches behind Ryan Mathews. "He’s a very versatile player and he’s a big old-school fullback," Turner said. "But he’s a good runner, he’s got good catching skills and I think he’ll be a big addition."

Chargers GM A.J. Smith says adding a backup running back is "not a pressing thing".

Smith mentioned both lines as higher priorities, and said that adding a No. 2 rusher is "on the back burner right now." He went on to point out the long list of veteran backs still available. The Chargers are very likely to draft a middle-round back, but Ryan Grant, Joseph Addai, and Jackie Battle are among the available free agents. Currently, Le'Ron McClain is slotted in as the No. 2.

The Union-Tribune San Diego feels Le'Ron McClain will see time at tailback this season.

McClain has been eying more of a ball-carrying role since leaving Baltimore two seasons ago. He handled 232 carries back in 2008, but has only 89 since. The Chargers are sure to add some tailback depth to compete with Ryan Mathews and Curtis Brinkley, so expecting anything more than a half dozen carries per game from McClain is irrational. He won't be worth fantasy consideration unless Mathews goes down with an injury.

Chargers signed FB Le'Ron McClain, formerly of the Chiefs, to a three-year contract.

Free agent Mike Tolbert is likely moving on, which would certainly be good news for the fantasy prospects of Ryan Mathews. McClain thinks he's a tailback, but he's really a true lead-blocker and pass-protector with limited rushing ability. In his career, McClain has averaged just 3.8 yards-per-carry on 329 totes.
Wed, Mar 14, 2012 07:09:00 PM

Coach Romeo Crennel indicated the Chiefs would like to re-sign free agent FB Le'Ron McClain.

"He's versatile. He can do several things," Crennel said. "He can block. He can catch the ball out of the backfield. He's good in (blitz) pickup." McClain has also been connected to Baltimore, where he would ostensibly return as a backup at both tailback and fullback.
Mon, Feb 27, 2012 01:23:00 AM

Interim coach Romeo Crennel suggested that Le'Ron McClain could get some carries in Sunday's finale.

Jackie Battle (foot) is out. McClain has just 13 carries in 15 games this season, but did rush 232 times in one season for the Ravens back in 2008. Look for some kind of three-headed monster with Thomas Jones, Dexter McCluster and McClain.
Thu, Dec 29, 2011 11:13:00 AM

The NFL is expected to review the Week 7 1-yard touchdown that was credited to FB Le'Ron McClain.

McClain fumbled very close to the goal line and guard Jon Asomoah fell on the ball in the end zone. The play wasn't reviewed and the official scorer credited McClain with the score. The league will take a look and issue an official scoring decision by Wednesday. "It would be nice, so I could say I scored for the first time in my life," Asomoah said.
Tue, Oct 25, 2011 11:42:00 AM

Despite the loss of Jamaal Charles, FB Le'Ron McClain's primary role will continue to be lead blocker.

"Everything has been the same," McClain said. "I just got the game plan today and was out there at fullback doing my thing." McClain's role is subject to change if Thomas Jones and Dexter McCluster falter. As of now, though, he's without fantasy value.
Fri, Sep 23, 2011 10:19:00 AM

Le'Ron McClain carried the ball four times four 15 yards in Kansas City's Week 2 loss to the Lions.

He added two catches for 12 yards. McClain could be in for a bigger workload if Jamaal Charles ends up missing time with his knee injury, but won't be worth a look in fantasy leagues unless he emerges as the Chiefs' goal-line back. That is not something he's likely to do.
Sun, Sep 18, 2011 05:06:00 PM

Coach Todd Haley confirmed that FB Le'Ron McClain will not take any carries away from Jamaal Charles or Thomas Jones.

McClain has been outspoken in the past about his desire to carry the rock previously. But Haley made it very clear to McClain what his role is. "I'm a fullback, and I'm here to win. Two things. Just two things: Getting Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones 1,000 (yards) apiece, that's what I'm here to do," McClain said.
