Ravens re-sign offensive lineman Bryant McKinnie


The Baltimore Ravens have re-signed left tackle Bryant McKinnie to a two-year contract. McKinnie did not start a game during the 2012 regular season but became a valuable part of the Ravens offensive line during the playoffs.

McKinnie, 33, failed to generate interest for much of free agency but had recently met with Miami and San Diego. After the meetings McKinnie was said to be weighing offers but in the end the Ravens were able to swoop in and resign the 11-year veteran.

The Ravens current offensive line figures to stack up like this: LT McKinnie, LG Kelechi Osemele, C Gino Gradkowksi, RG Marshal Yanda, and RT Michael Oher.

Matt Birk who had been the Ravens center for the last four seasons retired in February.
