NFL Rumors: Miami Dolphins still open to re-signing Bryant McKinnie


The Miami Dolphins are starting to piece themselves back together after being destroyed by the bullying scandal that rocked their locker room. They’ve signed Knowshon Moreno to a one-year deal but the team still needs to think about who will be blocking for him upfront.

Last season the Dolphins acquired Bryant McKinnie from the then Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens and just a few weeks ago they send a late-round draft pick up north to complete the deal. Since then, many have been wondering how McKinnie fits into the future of the franchise and according to Aaron Wilson, the door in Miami remains open for the offensive tackle.

Miami isn’t guaranteed to re-sign him, but he’s not drawing much interest elsewhere and the team isn’t really lighting it up on the offensive front. They signed Branden Albert to play tackle, but bringing back McKinnie as even just a back up may be a good move for both parties.
