McClain, 26, played last season under a $1.85 million restricted tender.
A gritty former undrafted free agent from Syracuse, McClain is coming off a season where he recorded 81 tackles, one sack, his first NFL interception, five pass deflections and two fumble recoveries.
McClain beat out Dannell Ellerbe and Tavares Gooden for the starting inside linebacker job two years ago, and he hasn’t relinquished his grip on the position.
He had 91 tackles two years ago, a sack and a fumble recovery in his first season as the starter, and he’s piled up 209 tackles, 4 ½ sacks and three fumble recoveries in four NFL seasons.
