McKinnie visits Dolphins, Chargers next; Ravens still option
Bryant McKinnie visited the Dolphins on Monday, remains in contact with the Ravens and has a visit with the Chargers scheduled, according to sources.
The veteran left tackle, who emerged from the doghouse to help lead Baltimore's charge to the playoffs and then a Super Bowl title, did not get much interest in the early stages of free agency. But with several teams now still in need of tackles with the draft completed, and few options available, McKinnie is getting interest.
His relationship with the Ravens' staff and brass has always been rocky. And despite weight and attitude concerns, he has been a vital pass protector for Joe Flacco at critical times. Baltimore has remained in contact with him and, at the right price, he could still be back there. The Miami native made the short trip to the Dolphins' facility on Monday and will visit the Chargers soon.
Miami is considering moving Jonathan Martin to left tackle and signing a right tackle like free-agent Eric Winston but are at least exploring McKinnie as well. And the Chargers signed tackle King Dunlap, who held up well with the Eagles last season under trying circumstances, but are also open to exploring options for depth at tackle.
