"Hopefully I return back with the Dolphins," McKinnie told the team's official website. "You know you have four out of the five [offensive lineman] whose contracts are up. I've been in the healing process and everything and I'm feeling better, working out and stuff like that.
"We have a new general manager so that's good, and we'll just see how things go. I plan on playing for a couple more years and it would be great to just finish my career there where I already have a home."
McKinnie has been in the NFL since the 2002 season, and was part of the Ravens team that won Super Bowl XLVII.
