When the Baltimore Ravens acquired the talent left tackle Eugene Monroe from the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday, it was safe to say that is was the beginning of the end for Bryant McKinnie’s tenure with the Ravens.
While it seems very likely that the Ravens will part ways with McKinnie, the only way we’ll all know if that is true or not will come from Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
One way of knowing if the end is near for McKinnie, is if Monroe lines up as the Ravens starting left tackle. On most occasions, teams will usually try to ease their newly acquired players into starting roles, so those players can get caught up with their new team’s playbooks.
Another way, is if the Ravens decide to make McKinnie active or a healthy inactive for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. If he is active, maybe there is a future for him as a reserve tackle. If he is a healthy inactive, they could be in the process of looking to trading him before (eventually) releasing him.
