Bryant McKinnie is coming to town on Tuesday to meet the team to explore the possibilities of becoming the Chargers new starting left tackle. Tom Telesco better not let him leave town without a signed contract. The options for a left tackle are running thin in free agency. McKinnie is the best one available and if the team is committed to building up that offensive line for Philip Rivers, McKinnie will be the starting left tackle next season.
If the Chargers are unable to lock in McKinnie, we may see King Dunlap starting on the left side on Sundays. Another tackle that is available is former Pittsburgh Steeler Max Starks, but I don’t know how much better Starks would be over Dunlap. Starks has the experience and championships to back him up, but he also is getting up there in years. Dunlap may have his skeptics, but he has shown that he can be a good pass blocker. We would just have to run the ball on the right side.
