Bryant McKinnie trolling for work
Shortly after the Minnesota Vikings pulled the plug on Bryant McKinnie, the veteran left tackle tweeted that he would be making a return in 2012.
Since, he’s clarified that point and made it clear he’d like to play this season. Now, his agent Drew Rosenhaus is shopping him to the league. According to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network, Rosenhaus sent an email to all 32 teams informing them McKinnie is looking for work and he’s willing to play for $2.5 million this season. He’d also like “reasonable incentives.”
McKinnie was set to earn about double that from the Vikings before he refused to take a pay cut and was released.
How soon McKinnie finds a taker remains to be seen. He weighed near 400 pounds when the Vikings cut him loose and his cholesterol measured near 400, as well, according to multiple NFL sources. In that kind of shape, no one is going to touch him.
