Isn't Max Starks a free agent still? I wonder why no team's are interested in him. He's better than McKinnie.

Probably money, i remember in 2011 he kept his price the way it is no matter how much the Steelers wanted to re-sign him [for cheaper] and after the regular season started and they struggled with pass protection, they finally signed him on week 5.

I never understood this. It seems like he's a FA every offseason and every offseason he ends up back with the Steelers. He's an above average LT IMO. McKinnie is good as well just can't be trusted.

I would be happy if the Phins sign either of them just to get them out of the AFCN...

Either him or Jammal Brown if he checks out medically.

why anyone would have an interest in Bryant McKinnie is beyond me. He is a terrible LT with no work ethic.

He can actually be good when he wants to, but the problem is, he doesn't want to. Sort of like Gaither.

McKinnie came into the starting lineup for the Ravens in their first game which allowed others to be moved around. It stabilized the Ravens o-line and was a big reason why they went on the run that they did. Someone will take the gamble on him. Will it pay off? Doubt it.

Eh, I wouldn't say he's terrible. He was never too big of a liability in Minnesota, Just average.
