NFL Free Agency Rumors: Miami Dolphins not showing an interest in signing Bryant McKinnie


Despite having a need on their offensive line, the Miami Dolphins are apparently not desperate enough to yet entertain the idea of signing Bryant McKinnie to a new contract. While they traded for him in the middle of the 2013 season, the Dolphins have reportedly showed little to no interest in bringing back the offensive tackle for a full season.

Per the Miami Herald:

The Dolphins have a vacancy at right tackle.

And yet, there’s no sign that the two will reunite in 2014. As of Tuesday morning, the Dolphins had not reached out to McKinnie about returning next season, the Miami Herald has learned. 

This isn’t all that surprising, as McKinnie has worn out his welcome on more than one NFL team in his career. He flamed out with the Minnesota Vikings and partied a little too hardy for the Baltimore Ravens before being shipped down to Miami.

He was also on an offensive line that allowed Ryan Tannehill to get hammered pretty hard last season, and all of this doesn’t bode well for a 2014 return to Miami for aged McKinnie.
