Breaking down Bryant McKinnie's two-year deal with the Ravens

Ravens left tackle Bryant McKinnie's two-year contract has a base value of $6.3 million that includes a $2 million bonus, according to a source with knowledge of the deal, with a maximum value of nearly $7 million.

The contract includes a $1 million base salary this year, a $2 million base salary in 2014 and corresponding salary-cap figures of $2.5 million and $4 milllion.


The contract has annual workout bonuses of $200,000.

There are also incentive clauses that can boost the total value of the deal. There's a $200,000 reporting bonus each year as well as a $500,000 roster bonus is due next year.


The reporting bonus and workout bonuses should provide motivation for McKinnie.

The former Pro Bowl blocker has had weight and conditioning issues in the past and reported late to training camp last year after saying he slipped at his South Florida home and hurt his back.

The 6-foot-8, 354-pounder said he plans to be around the Ravens more during the offseason.

He started every game at left tackle during the playoffs as the Ravens' offensive line allowed just six sacks in four games while the offense averaged 410.3 yards of total offense during their Super Bowl run.
