    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.
    Why not try Clabo or Winston at LT? We already know that Oher can't do it. Clabo is a little old and set in his ways but Winston might be able to make that transition. I'd try that before sticking Oher back there.

    Miami's name is associated with every free agent left tackle out there. I don't see Ozzie making a move until they overpay someone. If they want Big Mac they'll get him.

    As unlikely as it is I'm still hoping we can figure out a way to get Branden Albert. He's going to play somewhere.

    You're probably right, but I would think that these teams would like to get something in return for such players instead of just letting them walk. Anyone think Ozzie could make a splash for a LT? If he does, it would have to be for someone who the Ravens could fit under the cap this year. I am looking at Eugene Monroe with the Jags and his $3.8M 2013 salary. I wonder if he could be had for a 2nd round pick?

    Eugene Monroe OT
    8/14/2009: Signed a five-year, $35.4 million contract. The deal contains $25 million guaranteed, including a onetime bonus of $5.98 million. An annual $205,000 workout bonus is available in years two through five. 2013: $3.8 million, 2014: Free Agent

    I wouldn't be surprised to see him stay in KC for one year. They've already guaranteed him 9M which is probably the most heis going to get. Why take less if you're Albert?

    Do you remember the play in the SB, when McKinnie forgot to block his man and Joe got creamed??

    That play could have lost the game if Joe would have fumbled.

    I don't think the Raven really belive that McKinnie is there guy.

    I agree with the Eagles and Jaguars, but KC has been shopping Albert around. I don't think they want to pay him the franchise tag money(almost 10m) he is due to get.

    Re: Bryant McKinnie visiting the Dolphins

    I'm at at wait and see approach. Ozzie will get someone in there later then sooner. June cuts are money pickups for the Oz. Alot of good options as you all have stated. Someone will get there, I'm not on board with Oher at Lt, but if that's the plan o well. KO can be there, but truth he is a monster at G. We could be very well be looking for a LG again and not LT. Maybe Wagner sides to RT and KO stay at G. I don't know, but I do know, we will find hopefully the best 5 before we crush mile high hopes again. I'll wait til at least OTa's to see what kind of plan could be for our line.

    I don't think the Ravens really want McKinnie back either, but he may be their best option.
    The top 3 LTs were snatched up by pick #4, and M. Watson (10th pick, round 2) and T. Armstead (13th pick, round 3) weren't available when Ravens selected... Bc

    Scott Garceau said he did have a physical down there.

    That should have ruled him out already.

    Re: Bryant McKinnie visiting the Dolphins

    Raise your hand if you think McKinnie is working out and in shape? That's what I thought crickets. Last off season all the talk was of him losing weight and getting in shape. When it was time for camp, he conveniently had a back injury. Cough Cough. He fat ass wasn't in shape and he never will be dedicated to his craft. I remember a time we were all clamoring when the the "BIG LAZY" Gaither left.

    Imagine if he would have stayed in shape, and had an attitude adjustment. He would be the Ravens starting LT, had a Super Bowl ring, and a multi-million $$$ contract. Some guys never learn... Bc
