Ravens' Saturday pool report

DT Ryan McBean has had his suspension reduced from six to three games, according to multiple reports.

The former Bronco signed with the Ravens on Monday, but before doing so, McBean settled his lawsuit complaint against the NFL.

McBean was originally suspended for six games, along with Broncos LB D.J. Williams, for violating the league’s performance-enhancement policy. Williams’ suit is ongoing. Broncos TE Virgil Green was also suspended, but he did not file suit. McBean's suit alleged that the league improperly handled his drug test. He dropped the suit in exchange for the reduced suspension.

McBean is expected to back up Terrence Cody in Baltimore.
