The Baltimore Ravens remain in contact with free agent
offensive lineman Bryant McKinnie, and general manager Ozzie Newsome told reporters
– including Matt Zenitz of The Carroll County Times – that the team could still
re-sign the veteran to be the team’s starting left tackle.
"Could he [McKinnie] be our left tackle? He potentially
could be," Newsome said. "Could KO [Osemele] be our left tackle? He
could potentially be our left tackle, too. I think we are very open. I think
the dialogue has been very good with B-Mac from my standpoint, and I think John
would echo the same thing.”
If Baltimore doesn’t add anyone, the team would likely move
forward with second-year player Kelechi Osemele as their left tackle over
veteran Michael Oher. However, the Ravens could still bring in another offensive
lineman, either via free agency or the draft.
Newsome characterized his relationship with McKinnie as “good,”
and added that head coach John Harbaugh and run game coordinator Juan Castillo
have been in contact with the veteran offensive lineman.
