OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — The Baltimore Ravens and offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie have agreed on a two-year deal, pending him passing a physical.

McKinnie was cut in training camp by the Minnesota Vikings after he reported overweight. He played nine seasons for the Vikings, starting in 131 games.

It is uncertain whether McKinnie will play on the right or left side with Baltimore. Michael Oher played left tackle last season, and this summer the right side has been handled by rookie Jah Reid and veteran Mark LeVoir.

Either way, the 6’8″ McKinnie could end up being a starter if he passes Wednesday’s physical.

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis says McKinnie “will make us better.”

After playing in college at Miami, McKinnie was the seventh overall pick in the 2002 NFL draft.
