McKinnie solidifies the Ravens’ Offensive Line

Bryant McKinnie signed a 2 year deal today and will be a stop gap veteran at LT. McKinnie clearly has a lot left in the tank, as evidenced by his playoff run. The most important aspect of this move, however, is the stabilization of the Raven’s offensive line.

Here is what the line looked like prior to today:

Osemele-Competition-Gradkowski-Yanda-Oher

By adding McKinnie:

McKinnie-Osemele-Gradkowski-Yanda-Oher

McKinnie moves Osemele back to his natural position at left guard and eliminates a vicious LG competition that would take place between Jah Reid, Ramon Harewood and draft pick Ricky Wagner.

The only question mark now is at Center, but Gradkowski showed promise in his debut against Geno Atkins last year.
