I wonder if the Ravens were foolish to release McKinnie without a backup plan in place? I know they have Jah Reid, but he is more of a RT. Michael Oher has shown he cant play LT very effectively.

With the way Osemele has played this off-season as well as the way McKinnie played last season I don't think there's much room for a downgrade. It's not really a question of McKinnie vs. Osemele though. Oher at LT is better than McKinnie given the current makeup of the line (and in just about any other scenario). I'm comfortable with Osemele playing at RT and Reid is there to push him if he struggles. If McKinnie is cut then keeping Harewood makes more sense too.

McKinnie to AZ would make sense. The Steelers also seem desperate for LT help as well.

Would he have to dock his boat in the Diamondbacks' pool?

David Garrard released. Bryant McKinnie restructured. The reason is teams have to be under the cap by 4 p.m. eastern

Bryant McKinnie's agent, Michael George, told me he agreed to a restructured deal for McKinnie to remain a Raven.

For the 'Kevin Faulk' plays in the playbook? I like it

Mularkey stresses the values of team chemistry and intangibles.

Mularkey said he learned the importance of putting team first when he played with the Minnesota Vikings from 1983-1988. The last two years they were knocked out of the playoffs by Washington and San Francisco, two teams that went on to win the Super Bowl.

“It wasn’t that they weren’t good people. It was distractions. More of those guys were concerned about themselves than they were about the team. Great players, though. Absolutely great players. They had 13 Pro Bowlers [actually six in 1987 and nine in 1988]. It was a frustrating locker room because those guys that weren’t the most talented [were] the guys that worked their tail off. I was around a lot of talent. We should have won a lot more games than we did,’’ he said.

The NFL Network hired former Eagles, Redskins and Vikings QB Donovan McNabb as an analyst.

I wonder how many times McNabb will tell the world that he can still be a starting Qb in the NFL. Laughing

Typically, a team deactivates a player that may not be available to suit up. The Chicago Bears on Saturday decided to simply cut him. Running back Lorenzo Booker, questionable for the season opener with a head injury, has been released by the team.

Moss just got his first TD as a 49er.

After the Ravens’ offense played well on Monday night with Michael Oher as the starting left tackle and Bryant McKinnie as a backup, that’s the way Baltimore’s offensive line will remain. Oher will remain as the start left tackle and McKinnie will remain a backup going forward, sources told NFL.com.
