It seemed like there was a decent chance that he could be released at some point today, but the two sides have apparently worked things out.
McKinnie reportedly stated in a text that the two parties “couldn’t come to an agreement on a contract restructure,” bringing about his release. The Ravens want his $3.2 million base salary reduced, but they haven’t been able to come to terms.
If McKinnie is indeed leaving, he should be able to find at least some interest on the open market. Meanwhile, his exit could see Michael Oher flip back to LT, where he played in 2010 and didn’t fare too well.
