DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Tackle Bryant McKinnie has been traded by the Baltimore Ravens to the Miami Dolphins, who are anxious to shore up a leaky offensive line.
The Ravens will receive a conditional late-round draft pick, coach John Harbaugh said Monday.
McKinnie will likely compete for playing time with right tackle Tyson Clabo, who allowed two fourth-quarter sacks in Miami's loss Sunday to Buffalo and has given up seven sacks this season.
Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill leads the NFL with 26 times sacked. His fumble when he was sacked in the closing minutes by the Bills led to a field goal that gave them a 23-21 victory.
Dolphins coach Joe Philbin resisted any temptation to shake up the offensive line when the team had a bye before the Buffalo game.
