Suspension reduced to three games for new Ravens defensive tackle Ryan McBean

Less than 24 hours after signing former Broncos nose tackle Ryan McBean to a one-year contract, the Ravens received good news about his impending suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancement policy.

The Denver Post is reporting the NFL has reduced McBean’s suspension from six games to three in exchange for the defensive lineman dropping his lawsuit against the league. The Ravens signed McBean to boost depth along the defensive line after the free-agent losses of Cory Redding and Brandon McKinney.

McBean was released by Denver last month after the organization signed veteran defensive tackle Justin Bannan and drafted defensive tackle Derek Wolfe to upgrade its defensive line. .
