According to Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel, the Dolphins have “not ruled out” re-signing veteran OT Bryant McKinnie.
McKinnie said he would be open to moving to right tackle next year, which happens to be a position of need for the Dolphins.
“It shouldn’t be too hard,” said McKinnie during in an interview with WQAM, via the Sun Sentinel. ”I have done it in practice a few times. It shouldn’t be too much of a transition.”
McKinnie, 34, had a tough year in 2013 allowing eight sacks while rating considerably low in both run and pass-blocking last year, according to Pro Football Focus. He was rated as the No. 65 tackle in the league out of 75 qualifying players.
Even though McKinnie struggled last year, there is a chance he could find interest from a few based on the limited depth at the position.
“I’ll definitely compete and as long as its a fair [competition] I feel like I’ll win,” McKinnie said of remaining an NFL starter. “If there’s no favoritism, I think I can win.“
