DAVIE, Fla. – A person with knowledge of the deal says tackle Bryant McKinnie has been traded by the Baltimore Ravens to the Miami Dolphins, who are anxious to shore up a leaky offensive line.
The person confirmed the trade to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams hadn't made an announcement Monday. It wasn't known what or who the Ravens received in return.
McKinnie will likely compete for playing time with right tackle Tyson Clabo, who allowed two fourth-quarter sacks in Miami's loss Sunday to Buffalo and has given up seven sacks this season.
Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill leads the NFL with 26 times sacked. His fumble when he was sacked in the closing minutes by the Bills led to a field goal that gave them a 23-21 victory.
