The Miami Dolphins didn't trade for Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Branden Albert. They didn't take an offensive lineman until the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft, and some analysts believe that player (Dallas Thomas) would be better off at guard.
That leaves the Dolphins with a huge hole at offensive tackle. Bryant "Mount" McKinnie should be big enough to fill any depth chart opening.
NFL.com's Jeff Darlington reported that McKinnie will visit the Dolphins on Monday. The University of Miami product has talked about wanting to return to the Baltimore Ravens this offseason, but the Ravens didn't give him an offer he deemed worthy. A contract shouldn't be too hard to complete considering McKinnie doesn't have a lot of alternatives, despite a sensational playoff run with the Ravens.
Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said he has some things "up his sleeve" for the offensive tackle position. The Dolphins also have spoken with Eric Winston, but McKinnie seems like a better fit because he'd allow second-year pro Jonathan Martin to play right tackle.@greggrosenthal.
