Ravens To Shop Mckinnie


Recommended Posts


Now that Ozzie Newsome has acquired Eugene Monroe to shore up Joe Flacco's blindside, the Baltimore Ravens general manager apparently is going to attempt the equivalent of selling a ketchup popsicle to a woman in white gloves.

The Ravens are expected to explore a trade that would send Bryant McKinnie out of Charm City, league sources tell The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. It should be noted that Wilson stops short of reporting that Newsome is shopping McKinnie.

McKinnie is four games into a two-year, $6.3 million contract signed in May, and the team's brass has concluded that he's a lost cause in his age-34 season. Although the Ravens already have paid his $2 million signing bonus, McKinnie has another $1 million in guarantees remaining on his base salary.

McKinnie has allowed one sack, 10 quarterback hurries and two quarterback hits this season while struggling as a run blocker.

Newsome has to be hoping the Miami Dolphins grow desperate enough to spin the wheel on McKinnie now that Ryan Tannehill leads the league in fumbles and sacks absorbed.

McKinnie attended the University of Miami and weighed an offseason offer from the Dolphins before re-signing with the Ravens.

If the Dolphins take a pass, it's hard to imagine Newsome finding a trade partner.
