Free agent LT Bryant McKinnie weighing offers from Chargers and Dolphins

Thursday May 2nd, 2013

Bryant McKinnie is considering offers from both the Chargers and Dolphins, according to Ravens beat reporter Aaron Wilson on Twitter. Both teams are in need of help at left tackle, giving McKinnie, 33, an upper hand. The Cowboys have reportedly made a late inquiry as well.

McKinnie was drafted by the Vikings in the first round (seventh overall) of the 2002 draft. He spent the majority of his career in Minnesota but was released by the team in 2011. The Ravens signed him to a two-year contract in August 2011. McKinnie started in all 16 games in 2011. In 2012, he was replaced at left tackle during the regular season by Michael Oher, but he started every postseason game.

McKinnie posted a picture on Instagram during his trip to San Diego for a physical and various meetings. The caption said "In the building early."
