Traded to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for a conditional late- round draft pick Monday, veteran offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie left the Ravens with no regrets.
Although it was a frequently bumpy ride that ended with him being replaced by Eugene Monroe as the Ravens' left tackle before being unloaded to the Dolphins, McKinnie says he harbors no hard feelings about his time in Baltimore and cherishes his Super Bowl ring.
"I look at the whole experience of me coming to Baltimore as a positive even though we both moved on at the end," McKinnie told The Baltimore Sun on Friday night. "I thanked Ray Lewis at the ring ceremony in June because he was the key instrument in me coming to Baltimore. He stepped up and called me every day and orchestrated the whole thing. He really taught me a lot. I told him that in a conversation and he was amazed that I took the time out to say how much I appreciated that.
"I learned so many things from him. I take what I learned from him and I'll try to teach these other guys down here in Miami and be a mentor. I appreciated my time in Baltimore. It was a great learning experience and I was able to get a ring. I will always be a part of the Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl team. That's something no one can ever take away"
