Patriots Placing LB Shea McClellin On Injured Reserve

Field Yates of ESPN is reporting that the Patriots are placing LB Shea McClellin on injured reserve Monday.

McClellin, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Bears back in 2012. Chicago declined his fifth-year option, which allowed him to test the open market and he eventually signed a three-year, $8.95 million contract with $3.5 million guaranteed with the Patriots last year.

McClellin stands to make base salaries of $1.9 million and $2.15 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2016, McClellin appeared in 14 games and recorded 41 tackles, one sack and a fumble recovery.
