08:00 AM ET 08.24 | The Ravens attempted to bolster their offensive line by signing offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie on Tuesday. The 6-foot-8, 350-plus-pound lineman was technically a Pro Bowl player for the Vikings in 2009 even though he didn't bother showing up for any of the Pro Bowl practices and was kicked off the NFC squad. The talent is there for McKinnie to be the Ravens' short-term answer at right tackle -- or maybe even left tackle -- but there are a few reasons why the soon-to-be 32-year-old was still on the free agent market. For one, he has been charged in three different incidents since entering the NFL in 2002. ... He also was cut by the Vikings this summer for showing up to camp in awful shape, reportedly more than 50 pounds overweight.
