Source: Vikings Release OT McKinnie

“Mount McKinnie”

Ever since holding out the first half of his rookie season in 2002, Bryant McKinnie’s career has been a roller coaster ride in Minnesota.

The Vikings’ offensive tackle did not partake in the team’s first training camp practice on Monday, and was placed on the non-football injury list due to conditioning issues.

As a result, the Purple team cut McKinnie, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The former Miami Hurricane standout made the 2009 Pro Bowl, only to have the league kick him off the squad for skipping team practices.

With the Vikings signing ex-Colts offensive tackle Charlie Johnson, McKinnie became expendable and no longer worth the trouble.

Farewell, Bryant.
