bryant_mckinnie_2013Bryant McKinnie is a 21st-century Jekyll and Hyde.

But instead of flipping personalities at night, McKinnie’s transformation comes in the offseason.

At least that’s how the mammoth offensive tackle tried to explain away his laundry list of off-field issues on his first day as a Miami Dolphin.

McKinnie, acquired from the Ravens via a rare in-season trade Monday, acknowledged that he has got a reputation as a notorious South Beach party guy — but with a caveat.

“That’s when I’m off,” McKinnie said Tuesday. “See, that’s Big Mac in the offseason. Bryant McKinnie is the person who comes to work and handles his business. That is what you’ll get right now.”
