Dolphins send seventh round pick to Ravens for McKinnie

The Miami Dolphins have finalized the trade for tackle Bryant McKinnie by sending their 2014 seventh round pick to the Baltimore Ravens. McKinnie started the last 10 games of the season for the Dolphins last year after being benched by the Ravens.

The Miami Dolphins are down to six selection in May's NFL Draft having sent their seventh round choice to the Baltimore Ravens for the in-season trade bringing Bryant McKinnie to South Florida. The compensation for McKinnie was first reported by the Miami Herald.

Miami was desperate for a left tackle last year, as Jonathan Martin was not performing at his college position. With the trade, the Dolphins moved Martin back to the right side. Martin left the team a week after McKinnie was acquired.

McKinnie said this week he would be willing to move to right tackle, a position he has never played at the NFL level, if the fit and team are right. While he seems to want to return to Miami, the team has not shown any interest in re-signing him at this point. The Dolphins do need to add a right tackle to their starting offensive line, while McKinnie could also serve as a backup left tackle in case anything happened to the newly signed Branden Albert.

It appears, for now at least, that the Dolphins are happy paying a seventh-round pick to the Ravens for a half-season rental.
