    it takes two to tango. i believe it's a case of McKinnie thinking he's worth more than what he's been offered.

    USA Today's Mike Garafolo reports free agent OT Demetress Bell would be a fallback option for the Ravens if they failed to re-sign Bryant McKinnie.
    It's the first we've heard of Bell since his release from the Eagles in early February. Bell was a total dud his lone season in the City of Brotherly Love, playing just 462 snaps while grading out as a bottom-three tackle in Pro Football Focus' ratings. He'd be little more than a reserve in Baltimore. Apr. 29 - 12:22 pm et

    Re: Bryant McKinnie visiting the Dolphins

    Wasn't there a blurb here a little while ago that we upped our offer to McK?
    My gut says its about $$$, right player, right price...
    I don't think we will be the whole way down to vet minimum, but sure seems like his agent it trying to squeeze the most (and what agent doesn't?)
    Smoke and mirrors IMO, at least 3 teams went off the market for McK during the draft, and maybe 5 teams did.... the agent is going to take any pretext for a visit he can at this point... Oz's patience is still in full force, and we know that he does move when he has to make the move... doesn't feel like he has to do anything just yet (and the "raised offer" precludes another team's vet minimum acceptance).

    Re: Bryant McKinnie visiting the Dolphins

    I'm heading down there on Wed as soon as I get out of traffic court so I'll put a good word
    in for you guys.

    He won't be hard to spot on the beach with his size and all those pizzas. Id invite
    him to go deep sea fishing with us but he'd probably sink the boat when he got on.




    You guys got any messages to give him.

    Re: Bryant McKinnie visiting the Dolphins

    You would think with all the contact he's had with Harbs and Oz that if he gets an offer he'd keep them in the loop, however the way Ireland has been overpaying it's no way they'll match an unreasonable offer.

    It makes you wonder what type of money they've been talking this offseason, because of Mckinnie's past work ethic and weight issues its a bit of a special case to have a capable NFL LT available this late in the game. When things are all said and done i'll be curious to find out what type of money he'll end up getting.

    Asking price withstanding it will be hard pressed to imagine the Ravens 2013 O-Line better as a wholie if Mckinnie signs elsewhere. Certaintly not the end of the world, he's a middling player at the position right now but i do believe he's easily the best player available in free agency at the position.

    I agree with your post. On top of being the best player at his position available in free agency, I hear he's also good with the ladies

    Re: Bryant McKinnie visiting the Dolphins

    There's one thing we can all guarantee: Bryant McKinnie is going to the highest bidder.

    If the Ravens are offering a bag of M&Ms, while the Dolphins offer a bag and a half, he's going to Miami.

    The possible silver lining is that they can't offer a bag and a half because they gave that 1/2 bag to Ellerbe

    Re: Bryant McKinnie visiting the Dolphins

    I'm sure the Ravens are somewhat interested, but does anyone really think that they should be tripping over themselves to re-sign the guy? When have the Ravens EVER done that? They let the face of their franchise hit free agency before re-signing him (Ray Lewis).

    As much as we'd love to see McKinnie come back the reality is that he is only interested in money and the Ravens are not interested in overpaying for a guy who isn't 100% in.


    That said, Demetress Bell makes me want to throw up a little.

    Why not target Tyson Clabo and/or Eric Winston, move Oher back over to LT and keep KO and guard? At least this way they've got RT, LG, and RG locked down whereas now they only have RG locked down. This is not to knock Gino either, but he is going to be much better off sandwiched between Yanda and KO as opposed to say being sandwiched between Yanda and a rookie or Harewood.

    well because that would allude to them wanting Oher back on the left side. I think all of this kind of lends to the belief that theyd like to keep Oher on the right if at all possible. If the team is willing to go forward with KO as LT, we should be discussing what Gs are available not just Ts. If mckinnie goes, id assume the next best OL consists of finding a LG before signing Bell.

    Good point. There are a lot of calories in a king size bar.

    The Eagles drafted Lane Johnson, presumably to be their LT. What are the chances that they would cut Jason Peters LT who is coming back from an Achilles tendon tear? If the Eagles cut Peters, anyone think the Ravens would be players for him? Peters says he is healthy and has been cleared by team doctors.

    The Eagles, Jaguars and Chiefs will just use bookend tackles for a year. All 3 need to help their QBs as much as possible. They'll be happy with the vet and the prospect this year and then will let the vet go in 2014.
