    That's true, also considering he could snooker other teams into believing he's motivated. He can't do that with the Ravens, so he may just go with the highest offer (keep in mind his below par finances too), and not have to deal with Harbaugh's harsh work-out regimen... Bc

    At 33/34 years old he knows this is his last chance at a payday. He's going to do whatever it takes to get a large chunk of guaranteed money.

    The Dolphins and Chargers have shown that they are willing to payout money like that for players who may or may not be worth it.

    The Ravens have not.

    Excellent point and you're 100% correct.

    Flacco's presence improved because he wasn't dropping straight back to the same spot EVERY passing play.

    This is 100% why I feel that the OC can really have a much larger impact on the productivity and success of an offense than many give them credit for. Like I said in other threads, there is a reason why you see more OCs getting head coaching offers than you do DCs. During this past HC carousel, I think Gus Bradley was the only new HC hire that was a defense guy. Mike McCoy, Bruce Arians, Chip Kelly, Andy Reid, Marc Trestman, and Doug Marrone are all offense guys.

    This is why I think it's unlikely that he winds up back with the Ravens. When DeCosta was asked this morning on 105.7 about the left tackle situation, McKinnie's name was never mentioned.

    Re: Bryant McKinnie visiting the Dolphins

    His agent have him visiting the Saskatchewan Roughriders yet?

    Wonder how their fans feel about getting a second Raven LT to replace the first one?

    Well, the Chargers did sign King Dunlap, who was pretty solid for the Eagles as a LT last year.

    So, it isn't like they are in dire straits for a LT. If they do sign McKinnie, I would expect Dunlap would be moved to RT and their 1st round pick, DJ Fluker, would probably move to LG, which is also a need for them.

    Good point. They are in the process of trading for Roger Saffold behind the scenes. Word just hasn't got out yet.

    Yeah, I think it's plainly obvious they don't want him back at any cost...well unless someone got hurt *knock on wood*

    Like others have suggested, I'd look at Winston/Clabo and plug them in at RT.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Oz said its a process so I think they have a price they're willing to pay but no more. It's his move

    Re: Bryant McKinnie visiting the Dolphins

    The hold up is that they had McKinnie's word, last year, that he'd show up to training camp in shape. However, we all remember how that went down. They just can't trust him. We as fans saw how he played once he was finally in shape, but some blindly assume that it would have been that way had he started day 1 and the organization knows better.
