OT Bryant McKinnie to move to right side?

Should the Fins bring back McKinnie to play RT?

In a radio interview on WQAM, OT Bryant McKinnie stated that he would be willing to move to the right tackle position if he came back to Miami.

Bryant, who will turn 35 in May, has never played right tackle. (But he believes he could make the transition.) This year’s NFL draft has some quality depth at right tackle position also.

But Bryant played decent last year for Miami, helping to stabilize an offensive line that was in disarry. By bringing him back as a one year stop gap, it allows the Dolphins to use their 6 NFL draft picks in other areas.

Plus, McKinnie would be the backup to LT Albert should Albert get hurt. Thoughts? Good idea to bring him back? Join us on our message board and share your thoughts on this at FinNation Forums

  • I say this is a win, win move. When he was the calm voice of reason during bullygate, I said to myself “wow, he’s grown up and become a leader.” Yes, too little too late, but healthy, he’s got some in the tank.

  • I think it’s a great idea to bring Mckinnie back. If he doesn’t start, the depth he provides will be a BIG plus. It also gives us insurance in case any offensive tackles are drafted and aren’t ready to start. You can’t count on rookie lineman to start for you right out of college unless of course their a top 10 talent. If Mckinnie will take a 1 year vets min. deal, i say bring him back.

      I like the idea of bringing him back for depth more so than starting him on the right side. Shifting from side to side is not as easy as you would think. But with Miami having to replace four starters, they have no depth really. I think McKinnie would make a solid backup if the price is right.
