Remember that direct message Bryant McKinnie sent to a Dolphins fan on twitter?

Well, McKinnie got his wish. On Monday, the Ravens traded McKinnie to the Miami Dolphins, according to a report from FOX Sports' Jay Glazer.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p>The Miami Dolphins, who&#39;ve been dealing w o-line trouble, have traded with the Ravens for Bryant McKinnie according to Ravens sources</p>&mdash; Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) <a href="https://twitter.com/JayGlazer/statuses/392353859969884161">October 21, 2013</a></blockquote>

In that direct message that McKinnie sent to a person who runs a Dolphins fan site, the left tackle wrote, "I wanna come back! Need u to get it trending on here. #McKinnieNMiami or something like that."

This was after the Ravens escaped Miami with a three-point victory.

McKinnie played his college football at the University of Miami, which is one reason why he probably wants to be back down there. As far as the Ravens' organization is concerned, this is one less headache to worry about.

At the same time, benching McKinnie and bringing in Eugene Monroe has done nothing for the offensive line. The running game is still having the same trouble it did before the roster move.
