After trading for new starting left tackle Eugene Monroe earlier in the month, the Ravens have dealt veteran Bryant McKinnie to the Miami Dolphins.
Coach John Harbaugh said the Ravens would receive a conditional late-round pick on Monday afternoon prior to the trade being officially finalized.
McKinnie’s future with Baltimore appeared to be in grave doubt after Monroe was acquired for fourth- and fifth-round selections in next year’s draft to replace the 34-year-old along a struggling offensive line. McKinnie made five starts for the Ravens after signing a two-year deal this offseason to remain in Baltimore.
“It’s a good move for us. I think it’s a good move for Bryant,” Harbaugh said. “I’m happy for Bryant. I think it’s a good opportunity for him. More than anything, that’s the most important thing. It’s just an opportunity for Bryant to go down there and play and do well.”
With Monroe making his first start against the Green Bay Packers in Week 6, McKinnie was listed as inactive in each of the last two games and was open to a trade elsewhere. McKinnie’s departure leaves rookie Rick Wagner as the Ravens’ primary backup tackle behind Monroe and right tackle Michael Oher as the fifth-round lineman from Wisconsin has served as an extra blocker in the jumbo package in recent weeks.
The trade is a homecoming of sorts for McKinnie, who played at the University of Miami before becoming a first-round pick in the 2002 draft and spending the first nine years of his career with the Minnesota Vikings.
