The free-agent signing of veteran linebacker Jameel McClain by the New York Giants was generally greeted with a collective shrug. McClain, who spent his first six seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, was mostly viewed as a non-descript replacement for a non-descript free-agent loss, linebacker Keith Rivers, who signed with the Buffalo Bills. As it turns out, however, McClain could end up being a very important player for the Giants in 2014. Let's take a closer look at McClain as we continue our player-by-player profiles of the 90-man roster the Giants will bring to training camp beginning July 21.
