Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland must have really big sleeves.
According to Jeff Darlington of the NFL Network, Ravens free agent tackle Bryant McKinnie is visiting the Dolphins today about their need for a left tackle.
Ireland said a Branden Albert trade was still a possibility, but indicated he had a Plan B, saying “I have some things up my sleeve that might work out.”
If they get the McKinnie who played so well in the postseason for the Ravens, they have a chance to improve. If they get the McKinnie who has battled weight and conditioning problems, not so much.
If nothing else, it’s a solid piece of leverage, if they’re trying to rekindle trade talks. But McKinnie’s more than solid when he’s motivated, which being stiff-armed by the Ravens ought to take care of.
