Ravens offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie thinks trade is still a possibility

With the Ravens bringing in Eugene Monroe, Bryant McKinnie feels a trade with him is still something the team could consider.

What's next for Bryant McKinnie?

Hey, even the left tackle himself apparently would like to know. With the Ravens bringing in Eugene Monroe, who won't be sitting on the bench sit on the bench past this week, a role for the 34-year-old left tackle remains uncertain.

To think McKinnie will engage in a position battle with Monroe is asinine. That's not going to happen. McKinnie's days in Baltimore as a starting left tackle are over.

That isn't something McKinnie seems willing to accept, according to The Baltimore Sun.

"Who says that's what I'm going to have to adjust to?" McKinnie said. ... "[M]aybe not. We don't know yet."

The Sun was the first to report that the Ravens are now considering trading McKinnie now that Monroe is in the fold.

McKinnie has had his issues previously with the Ravens. After starting every game in 2011, McKinnie reported to camp late and overweight in 2012 and didn't start in any regular season games. He was inserted into the starting lineup for the playoffs and helped the Ravens win a Super Bowl.

Now, McKinnie appears headed back to the bench. If there are no suitors for McKinnie, the Ravens could keep him on to provide depth.

That may be the best option because the Ravens shouldn't release McKinnie, considering he's due the full $1 million for the 2013 season. And let's be honest — what team would be willing to take on McKinnie at this point?
