02:10 PM ET 04.29 | Free agent offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie will visit with the Miami Dolphins on Monday. The former Minnesota Viking and Baltimore Raven hit the free agent market after being released by the Ravens earlier this spring. The Dolphins are still in the market for a tackle, and McKinnie would certainly satisfy that need. They lost left tackle Jake Long to the St. Louis Rams in free agency, and were not able to pull of a trade for Kansas City's Branden Albert. The Chiefs tried to move Albert in return for a 2013 second round pick, but are apparently open to trading for a similar pick in the 2014 draft. If McKinnie does sign with the Dolphins, it would be something of a homecoming for him, as he played in college for the Miami Hurricanes. The San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints had previously expressed interest in McKinnie's services, but San Diego is probably no longer interested after taking Alabama tackle D.J. Fluker in the first round on Thursday.

McKinnie at OT instead of Long? I doubt that was the plan. Unintended consequences.

Why would San Diego not be interested? Fluker is a Right Tackle.

Seems like everybody is visiting the Miami area lately!

Kansas Cit has to be gagging on their Cheerios over this. They really wanted to unload Albert and now they are watching the market is dry up on them and they seem to be stuck with him.

If you are a Dolphins fan, you'd better hope he was in town to hit the night life on South Beach and not because the Dolphins are interested. This guy is WELL past his prime.

McKinnie is a big risk. Sometimes he dominates, sometimes he's a turnstile at left tackle.

If I could sign him for a million per, I'd do it. Any more and no dice.

The Ravens pull him out of the frying pan two years ago and he should have two super bowl rings with them. I'd stick with a team who at least has a good chance of getting him another ring. At least they were able to keep him off the field until the playoffs to keep him healthy and fresh.

The Dolphins GM moves are terrible. They've been terrible for a while. But whatever they're doing at left tackle is just plain ugly.

Yet everyone thinks Miami is building a powerhouse...
