As things stand right now, McClain is set to make $2.5 million for the 2014 season. However, the Chargers are projected to be over the cap, which means it’s going to be hard for them to a fullback at that price.
Williams mentions that McClain only played 12 percent of the Chargers snaps in this season.
McClain, 29, hasn’t been a consistent fullback dating back to his time with Baltimore and still has a solid reputation as quality lead blocker.
Releasing McClain would free up $2.5 million in cap space, according to Overthecap.com.
