Baltimore Ravens @Ravens
The Ravens have reached a two-year agreement in principle with LT Bryant McKinnie.
Great! Let's hope it plays out well.
Nice. I'm good with this. At least we have a legit LT now. Maybe a continued stop gap, but a viable LT nonetheless.
Very happy with this.
It's the best we can do for now.
well now it depends on what Mckinnie shows up, motivated Mckinnie is top 8 at best, not motivated Mckinnie spells trouble
Told you guys :)

I'm glad to have the brick wall back. I feel like worst comes to worst we've had success re-shuffling that line.
But let me ask you guys this...if McKennie gets hurt or isn't conditioned well enough to play, do we move Michael Oher back to left tackle or do we try out KO? Because at this point I really just want to leave Michael on the right side...he's so much better over there and seems much more comfortable.
Welcome back Big Mac
Funny, not even a word from the media that they were going to sign him, lol. Hopefully Big Mac doesn't disappoint.
San Diego and Miami have fattened him up by wining and dining him in the last week, time to get him in shape.
This is a huge relief. I made a prediction earlier that the Ravens would go with Oher again at LT this year against all advice but it looks like they've finally realized he's not an LT. I couldn't be happier to be wrong.
Well, in spite of all the revisionist history that happened on this board, this is good news.
The guy was a decent-at-best LT in 2011. He was a good, not great LT in the 2012 playoffs. But if he's focused, in shape, and motivated (and none of those 3 are certain for 2013), he's a big addition. Not because I expect him to be anything other than decent, but because decent is better than what we got, and mostly because we are MUCH better with KO at guard and Oher at RT.
ETA: I'm also glad that we won't be subjected to yet another 23-page thread of:
"Well, Harbs just ran off another guy he didn't like!"
"No he didn't"
"YES, HE DID - THE DOGHOUSE IS REAL!!"
Etc, ad naseum.
At least for now the O line is stable

I'm really hoping this is just a depth move. 31 other teams passed on the guy, and many of them have much worse LT situations than we do. An out-of-shape, overweight, motivationally challenged, aging LT is not setting off any champagne corks in my house tonight.
at the very least we now have some continuity on the Oline it still strengthens the inner line with Yanda and KO at Gaurd, Gino im still worried about.
Wow. Didn't think this would happen, but am very pleased that they were able to work out a deal. Any idea how much the contract is for?
Wonderful. Maybe like flacco he'll go to McDonald's to celebrate. Only I think he'll opt for the 30 piece.
