    Re: McKinnie returns.



    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.

    Re: McKinnie returns.

    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.

    Re: McKinnie returns.

    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?

    I'm not sure this is true. Historically, even when McKinnie wasn't in very good shape, he was still a pretty decent LT.

    Re: McKinnie Signs 2 year deal with Ravens

    Wonderful. Maybe like flacco he'll go to McDonald's to celebrate. Only I think he'll opt for the 30 piece.

    It's not so much getting him back as it is keeping oher at RT and osemele at G. I'm ecstatic about seeing that oline from the playoffs play 16 games

    At 23, and at 28, and maybe even at 31. But he's 34 now. How much longer you think he can continue to be lazy and still decent?

    This!

    And it keeps Oher at RT, a position he is at least above average at.

    Ozzie is in their brain. No where was it reported that the Ravens were interested in him. Miami and San Diego opened up their expense account and bought Big Mac shrimp cocktail followed by surf and turf. Both of those organizations don't have the confidence to sign what they perceived to be the Ravens trash. It's obvious the Ravens wanted him back now despite previous speculation.

    I... did not see this coming.

    This was really the last possible solution to our LT problem for this season. Moving Osemele was an option of last resort. Let's hope we can keep him properly incentivized.

    Re: McKinnie returns.

    Nice to see. Hopefully he can put in the effort and play as well as he can. The O-line looks much better with KO at LG and Oher and RT now. I wonder how much the contract is for and how much guaranteed and any kind of incentives or things like weight clauses.

    Re: McKinnie returns.

    I firmly believe we are one of the two best teams in the AFC right now, neck and neck with Denver.

    1a- Denver
    1b-Baltimore
    3- Cincy
    4- New England
    5- Indianapolis
    6- Houston
    7- Miami
    8- Pittsburgh
    9- San Diego
    10-Cleveland
    11- Kansas City
    12- Tennessee
    13-16 Buffalo, NYJ, Oakland, Jacksonville

    The NFC is sooooo much better than the AFC this year IMO. The AFC has 7-8 teams that I would qualify as pure crap.

    Classic Ozzie move. Letting FA test the waters then come in at at a slightly better deal. Right player/right price.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.
