The Baltimore Ravens are pleased with offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie's conditioning, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. McKinnie is in much better shape than he was during last offseason.

"Bryant did a really good job," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh told Wilson. "He moved really well in this camp, as well as he moved at the end of the year last year when he started practicing so well and playing so well.

"He looks healthy, and he will continue to work on his conditioning. He seems to be very committed. Love the way he's playing and his effort."

After starting 16 regular-season games for the Ravens in 2011, McKinnie didn't start a single contest last season. He spent the year on Harbaugh's bad side due to his offseason behavior. McKinnie wasn't in good shape and was late to training camp. However, he worked on his conditioning throughout the season and reclaimed his starting left tackle position in the playoffs.

McKinnie is entering his third season with the Ravens after spending the first nine years of his career with the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings selected McKinnie with the seventh overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft.
