Default Bryant McKinnie

Reportedly released by Ravens:

Quote:
The Ravens approached left tackle Bryant McKinnie about restructuring his contract, but he sent ominous signals about his future in Baltimore via Twitter on Tuesday.

McKinnie has a $3.2 million base salary for the 2012 season but the Baltimore Sun reported the Ravens would “ideally like to cut his pay.”

McKinnie posted to his personal Twitter feed “Decision is made! I’m gone!”

WNST.net, dedicated to coverage of Baltimore sports, reported McKinnie confirmed he’s no longer with the team via text.
Any takers?

Did a Raider fan hack SA's account?

I'd move him over to RT and move Franklin inside if anything.

Two teams with OL problems: Steelers and the Jets. I wouldnt be surprised to see the Steelers make a proper go at him.

I don't think he's ever played RT. Plus he sounds like the perfect Raider

We still have around $11 million in cap space - B. Mckinnie would be a good backup for us even at that hefty pricetag if he took a 1 year deal. Given how many issues we have on the O-line he could fit in nicely if a changeup is needed

I wouldn't be entirely opposed to it based on that.

I agree with that except for 'ability' specifically regarding the RT position. Franklin just doesn't seem to have the skills for RT. Of course, Wide Load is a natural LT, so maybe their skill level is closer than it first looks.

Sounds like a brilliant idea. (Not)

Underachieved as a Viking, leading to his butt getting kicked out of town. Also has horrendous off the field problems. Remember The Loveboat Scandal? Just the tip of the ice-berg. The only reasons the Ravens signed him was because they were desperate and Ed Reed (former teammate at the U) vouched for him.

Thread fail.

I would expect the Steelers and Chargers to take a sniff, they both need help at OL - but he is probably going to sit for a few weeks until someone loses a LT.

If the Raiders sign him they will have a top 2 defense, or something like that.

I was hoping you would sign Clady to a big contract extension before this year. Rats. Now you might realize he isn't that good anymore. (one injury did that)

When Kuper is back i think our line and depth looks much better. I know everyone talked about the 2nd and 3rd string in pre season but that was the entire line. you keep your starting line and plug a guy in you will have much better results.

Lazy, fat, occupies a position we're already strong at. Not worth the money.
