Both players are long-time NFL veterans who have not appeared in a game this season.

McKie, a 5'11 235 fullback, spent seven seasons with the Chicago Bears in the middle of the decade. He was on the Baltimore Ravens roster last season, but did not appear in a game.

Karney, a 5'11 260 fullback, was a second-team All-Pro selection in 2006 when he was with the New Orleans Saints. He played for the St. Louis Rams the last two seasons, where he started 13 games and received eight carries.
