Bryant Mckinnie Our Stop Gap Solution At Left Tackle


Recommended Posts

Potential Camp Casualty

: The Ravens paid left tackle

Bryant McKinnie

a $500,000 roster bonus in March, but he reportedly

struggled with his conditioning

in the offseason program, prompting the team to hold him out of minicamp. The Ravens have options at the position and if the soon-to-be 33-year-old looks more like a planet than a left tackle when he reports to training camp, his $3.2 million base salary could make him expendable. per NFL.COM

H3llz yeah, an overweight McKinnie is better than an injured McNeill or a healthy Baker/Svitek. Flacco was one of the most upright qb's in the league last year.

To all the haters... makes me wonder if TD knows a little more about who might be released during training camps than we the general public do. One reason why we passed on McNeill?????

i really think we could pry this guy for a low draft pick if he is not released. Like the excerpt says they have other options. Mckinnie is an experienced starter who has several pro bowls in his resume and would be able to handle some of the more dominant rushers we face this year. Baker is a disaster in cleats and holmes is not ready and was injured in OTAS

I'll take anyone. Seriously....anyone. Watching Sam Baker play left tackle is like watching 9/11 videos. You know exactly what is going to happen and you know it will be painful to watch, every single time.

McKinnie, who started 16 games last season, has battled weight issues throughout his career, but the Ravens might be willing to see him through this episode due to a lack of knockout talent behind him. Sometimes you have to roll with the big man.

Can the Ravens afford to cut him?

Ouch, that doesn't sound good at all. Still might be better than Baker but I'm not sure. For comparison sake, do you mind posting last year's PFF stats for Baker and Svitek as well?
