Report: Ravens' McKinnie facing $375k lawsuit

The off-field problems continue for Ravens offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie.

Per NBCMiami.com, McKinnie is being sued for $375,000 after reportedly failing to repay a debt stemming from charges piled up at several Miami strip clubs.

According to the lawsuit, McKinnie owes the money to Charles "Pop" Young, the father of rapper Trick Daddy.

Young is the former general manager of the King of Diamonds club. He is now the vice president of the Diamonds Gentlemen's Club and CEO of the Queen of Diamonds strip club.

In the lawsuit, Young claims McKinnie frequented several clubs he was present at between February 2009 and September 2010, racking up large bills and borrowing money from Young that was never repaid.

McKinnie reportedly agreed to repay the money, but hasn't repaid any of it as of yet.

Young is seeking to recover the money owed, plus interest as well as his costs.

According to the report, the lawsuit includes a promissory note from McKinnie written on Oct. 1, 2010.

"In the past, we discussed this amount listed above once the NFL season starts and I began receiving my payroll checks," McKinnie wrote, according to the note. "I hereby promise to speak to Mr. Young about this matter by October 5, 2010 and make arrangements to have this balance paid in full by December 1, 2010."

The lawsuit is the latest in a string of off-field issues for the oft-troubled McKinnie.

The Baltimore Sun reported in September that McKinnie's wages are being garnished this season as he repays Pro Player Funding for a $4.5 million loan he took out during the NFL lockout last year.

McKinnie signed a two-year, $7 million contact with the Ravens last summer, but agreed to a paycut in early September, cutting his $3.2 million base salary by $1 million.

McKinnie can make the $1 million back if he plays in 50 percent of Baltimore's offensive snaps this season. But after starting all 16 games last year, McKinnie has been relegated to backup duty this season with Michael Oher taking over for him as the team's left tackle.

McKinnie suffered a mysterious back injury during the week leading up to training camp in July and was a late arrival to camp as a result.
