The Miami Dolphins had a ton of issues on their offensive line last season. They added LT Bryant McKinnie in the middle of the year in order to help out up front and he gave Ryan Tannehill more time up front to throw the football. McKinnie was able to add some stability to the line.
McKinnie is set to become a free agent, but would like to return to the Miami Dolphins for another year:
Hopefully I return back with the Dolphins,” McKinnie said, via the team’s website. “You know you have four out of the five [offensive lineman] whose contracts are up. I’ve been in the healing process and everything and I’m feeling better, working out and stuff like that. We have a new general manager so that’s good, and we’ll just see how things go. I plan on playing for a couple more years and it would be great to just finish my career there where I already have a home.”
McKinnie turns 35 next year and is running out of time in the NFL. He might have a couple of seasons left in the game. He helped out the Dolphins last season and would like another chance to do it with them next season.
