PHOENIX - Baltimore Ravens free-agent left tackle Bryant McKinnie has reportedly garnered only minimal interest on the free agent market and Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday that Baltimore is "very open to bringing Bryant back."

"I hope that works out," Harbaugh said.

McKinnie didn't start a single game during this past regular season, but his insertion at left tackle for the playoffs - and the subsequent shuffling that went along with it - helped transform the Ravens' offensive line from a unit that struggled in pass protection during the regular season into a group that quarterback Joe Flacco later said was "unbelievable" in pass protection during the playoffs.


McKinnie was particularly impressive, especially considering he saw only minimal playing time during the regular season.

If McKinnie returns, Harbaugh said he'll be Baltimore's starting left tackle. If he doesn't, the Ravens will likely be forced to move Michael Oher back to left tackle, a position he struggled at last season before shifting to right tackle for the playoffs.
