Once the Ravens acquired LT Eugene Monroe, it only seemed like a matter of time before Baltimore would then ship out McKinnie. Some thought that the Ravens might hang onto McKinnie as some depth, but it seemed pretty clear the entire time that Baltimore wanted to trade away McKinnie in order to let him play somewhere.
Harbaugh stated that the Ravens will receive a conditional late-round draft pick in exchange for McKinnie from the Dolphins. The draft pick will help replace the fourth and fifth round picks that Baltimore traded to Jacksonville to acquire Monroe, which makes the deal even easier for the Ravens to pull the trigger on.
“It’s a good move for us. I think it’s a good move for Bryant,” Harbaugh said. “I’m happy for Bryant. I think it’s a good opportunity for him. More than anything, that’s the most important thing. It’s just an opportunity for Bryant to go down there and play and do well.”
A tell tale sign that Baltimore was looking to deal McKinnie has been his game status since Monroe took over as Bryant has not even been active the past two weeks.
