Albert Jamel McClellan[1] (born June 4, 1986) is an American football linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens. He played college football at Marshall University from 2005 to 2009, and was signed as an undrafted free agent after the 2010 NFL Draft.

Early years[edit]

A native of Lakeland, Florida, McClellan attended Kathleen High School, where he was rated as a two-star recruit by Rivals.com.[2]

McClellan was a three-time All-Conference USA selection at Marshall, as well as the C-USA Defensive Player of the Year in 2006. He redshirted in 2007 after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in pre-season, an injury that sidelined him for the year.[3]

Baltimore Ravens[edit]

McClellan was signed by the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent after the 2010 NFL Draft. McClellan played as the fourth string middle linebacker (Behind Ray Lewis, Jameel McClain, and Dannell Ellerbe). He did not play at all in 2010, but saw limited time the next year. With an injury to Terrell Suggs and the departure of Jarret Johnson to free agency in 2012, McClellan had a chance to compete for a starting outside linebacker spot with Paul Kruger, Courtney Upshaw, and Sergio Kindle. Upshaw appeared to have the edge for most of training camp, but in the third preseason game, McClellan got the start. He would start 11games during the season, and would record 49 tackles and a sack, both career highs.

On March 9, 2014, McClellan signed a new two-year contract to remain in Baltimore.[5]
