Defensive tackle Ryan McBean had signed with the Baltimore Ravens just a few weeks after the Denver Broncos rescinded its restricted free agent tender on him.

McBean will miss the first six games of the regular season following his suspension for a failed drug test while a member of the Denver Broncos. Then-teammates D.J. Williams and Virgil Green were also suspended for failed drug tests at the same time as McBean. McBean and Williams are appealing the rulings.
The Broncos didn't want to wait for the results of that appeal and decided remove its tender offer on McBean back in the middle of April. The team went out and signed Justin Bannan and drafted Derek Wolfe.
