    Thought this was a interesting tidbet in the Miami Herald and if true just makes me wonder what the phins braintrust is thinking.

    • Though offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie would love to play here, the Dolphins had not called or worked him out as of Tuesday morning, even though he graded out much higher than Marc Colombo in every category last season (McKinnie was 16th among guards, Colombo 76th, according to Pro Football Focus). But Colombo played for this Dolphins staff in Dallas; McKinnie didn’t

    I bet Sparano is clamoring for McKinnie, Ohara, and every offensive lineman that comes available. Unfortunately the roster can only carry so many and need to be settled very soon. He will continue the tinkering if you let him. However, he now knows better and hopefully he's learned from the past.

    He is still better than colombo. I would take him because right tackle is a major need and I want ohara for depth we got the money go get them!!!

    Sounds like Bryant McKinnie got so fat that he won't be able to play this year, and his career might be over.

    ===============
    Free agent LT Bryant McKinnie reported to Vikings training camp at 386 pounds before his release.
    It's not quite the rumored 400 pounds, but still an unacceptably high number for a player whose playing weight is 335. The National Football Post's Dan Pompei reports McKinnie is "so grossly out of shape that he would endanger his health by suiting up." Unless he suddenly develops an affinity for fitness he's lacked his entire career, the 32-year-old's playing days may be over.

    The Minneapolis Star-Tribune confirms released LT Bryant McKinnie weighed in "close to 400 pounds" upon arriving at camp.
    That's the vibe we picked up late last week when a beat writer noticed McKinnie was considerably bigger than the 360 pounds he played at last season. McKinnie claims he asked for his release to play elsewhere, but also acknowledges he may have to sit out a year and return in 2012. We wouldn't be surprised if the unmotivated former seventh overall pick never suits up again.

    damm mckenni needs jenny craig
    if he would be willing to go through
    a vigorous weight loss program then get him
    maybe he was thinking the lockout would last longer and ate himself out of a job

    That report did not include to him weighing in at 396 pounds not only was his blood pressure thru the roof, his cholesterol was super high, so much so, the team Drs felt he was in danger of literally killing himself if they let him practice. He did not get that way overnight and you do not control High blood pressure and high cholesterol in a few weeks just by taking medication, it does not work that way. FIRST and foremost, the man has to lose weight and the dosage he is probably taking to just get it somewhat none critical is probably massive.

    The man, in no way shape or form can lose the amount of weight needed to play in the NFL safely in time for the season, no way. Then his blood pressure and cholesterol problems are not magically going away even when he loses the weight. Add to that, his heart is probably ready to blow up and his blood is as thick as 40weight motor oil. For a young man, he has put himself in a very dangerous position, health wise.

    Just give him a three year incentive laden contract with no guaranteed money.

    McKinnie would be a huge acquisition to play RT, no pun intended; well maybe a little.

    Theres good reason no team in the NFL will touch this guy right now. One of them is they do not want him dropping dead in their practice facility. I will tell you how embarassed the man must be. Whne he first was cut he was telling anyone that listened that HE wanted out of his contract. If he was even close to being worth it, someone would have picked him up.

    McKinnie already weighed at least 350 prior to this season so now he must really be a slob. But Colombo blows chunks. The ONLY reason he is in Miami is because he's a former Cowboy!!!

    I love that some here can rip the CS for not bringing in a fat, over weight, slob that obviousily is so lazy he couldn't be bothered to put the burgers down and by doing so he's throwing millions and millions of dollars away. What's not to like about that guy, lol!!!! Not to mention that he played terrible last season due to his weight problems but let's bring him in.

    Let's whine about some of the dumbest things we can possibly come up with, well done!

    dude can still play at a high level you could bring him in on the cheap
    if he doesn't lose weight fast enough then he wont make the cuts
    i see no harm in bringing him in if he is dedicated

    Another thread of somebodies garbage is going to help us out. McKinnie got cut because he's out of shape and fat. We don't need guys who don't take their career seriously.

    McKinnie is too focused on his music career to care about football. Miami is home to him and means an extra paycheck, so why not show interest?

    Imagine McKinnie and Carey lining up next to each other? That's at least 750 pounds worth

    Interesting that they were graded among Guards since they're both Tackles.

    McKinnie failed his physical and was reportedly way out of shape. He's weighing 380+ pounds so until he gets serious and gets in shape I'm not taking that chance. He's a health risk and a liability right now.

    I never implied McKinnie was a good signing just ran accross this in the Miami Herald and put it out there for information and feedback. I follow the phins but not many other players on other teams to many thngs to do. Just thought it was interesting "since" he was rated higher than Columbo last year but I had not been tracking the guys wieght etc.
    Colombo appears to be struggling outside maybe he should play guard and Carey play outside.

    Maybe Dan can get him on nutrisystem and help him lose the weight! Ha!
    Seriously though, why not at least talk to him about what his plans are for losing the weight and if he's serious about being an NFL professional athlete any longer ? If not, then you just lose the time of a meeting. If he is, then maybe you look at some sort of conditional/incentive contract for him. While you may not get much, if anything from him part/all this year until he slims down, it could pay off for next year. Just a thought.
