Still waiting for right tackle Doug Free to respond to their request that he either take a pay cut or risk being cut, the Dallas Cowboys continue looking at potential replacements in free agency. The latest name to be thrown in the mix: Bryant McKinnie, the 11-year NFL veteran, most recently of the Baltimore Ravens.
The Baltimore Sun’s Ravens Insider Aaron Wilson tweeted Thursday that Dallas has reached out to McKinnie. He has already has offers from the San Diego Chargers and the Miami Dolphins.
McKinnie spent nine seasons with the Minnesota Vikings before joining the Ravens in 2012.
The Cowboys have also given a serious look to Eric Winston, the former Texan and Chief, but Winston’s asking price may be a little steep for the Cowboys. At last reports, Winston wanted to earn a base of $3-4 million annually.
Free is scheduled to earn a base salary of $7 million in 2013, which would make him the highest paid right tackle in the league.
