Last season tackle Bryant McKinnie took a pay cut to play with the Baltimore Ravens. For the upcoming season, McKinnie has made it clear that will not happen again.
With little movement on contract discussions between the Ravens and McKinnie, reports have connected the veteran left tackle with the Miami Dolphins.
Bryant McKinnie is visiting the Dolphins today, after driving 15 minutes from home for a physical. He's still there. A good sign for him— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 29, 2013
McKinnie, a 6'8", 354 lb. tackle, attended the University of Miami and keeps a home in the Miami area. The Dolphins have made it clear they need a tackle, with rumors swirling that Miami could make a trade to acquire Kansas City Cheifs tackle Branden Albert.
A first-round draft pick in 2002, McKinnie spent the majority of his 12 season career with the Minnesota Vikings before coming to Baltimore. While with Minnesota, McKinnie was named to the Pro Bowl in 2010, though he was later kicked off the NFC roster for missing practice.
Reports have also indicated that McKinnie has a visit scheduled with the San Diego Chargers.
