07:13 AM ET 10.22 | Finally, a team looking for an offensive lineman found a team looking to move one -- but what did the Dolphins get in Bryant McKinnie? "He is a proven and experienced player who will be a great addition to the offensive line," general manager Jeff Ireland said in a statement. "Bryant McKinnie was a good player at one time but he stinks now," a former NFL coach told me today. ... Is he a Joe Philbin-type player? Absolutely not. But the Dolphins are desperate. McKinnie can move in as the left tackle -- the position he's played all his professional life -- and they can move Jonathan Martin to right tackle, which is the position he played last year. McKinnie, not exactly a try-hard guy so far this year, has nonetheless given up only one sack in 2013. So that is indeed an upgrade.

Obviously, he never worked for Avis.

There's been a few Tanks, there's been a Fridge, there's been a House. McKinnie is the PartyBus.

He can complement Wallace, maybe they can keep each other focused during the game....

" He stinks right now." That is soooo harsh. couldn't he just say he is " In the process of transitioning to a new career?"

Excuse me but who is Joe Philbin? And what has he achieved with The Marlins? Aren't The Dolphins behind The Jets in the standings? Let's Blame Mc Kinnie, couldn't be the bad coaching or players Ireland put on the Team, could it?

McKinnie probably wants to take this un named ex coach for a boat ride.... He will say, " I may stink, but you about to sink."
