Professional career[edit]

San Diego Chargers[edit]

Brandon McKinney made his NFL debut for the San Diego Chargers in 2006. He was a quality backup nose tackle for two seasons there. McKinney was released by the Chargers on October 4, 2008 following the return of suspended linebacker Stephen Cooper.[1]

Baltimore Ravens[edit]

McKinney was signed by the Baltimore Ravens on October 8, 2008 after nose tackle Kelly Gregg was placed on season-ending injured reserve. McKinney, then #68, recovered a fumble from Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger.

McKinney was re-signed by the Ravens on February 17, 2009, preventing him from becoming a restricted free agent in the offseason.

In December 2009, the Ravens placed McKinney (now back to #91, which he wore for the San Diego Chargers) on injured reserve due to a back injury after just two tackles in 2009. In 2010, he would come back from injury and record 10 tackles for the Baltimore Ravens.[2]

Indianapolis Colts[edit]

McKinney signed with the Indianapolis Colts on April 4, 2012.[3] On August 6, 2013, McKinney was released with an injury settlement.[4] On June 19, 2014, McKinney was re-signed by the Colts,[5] but the Colts cut McKinney on August 30, 2014.[6]
