Miami TV station WTVJ reports that ex-Minnesota Viking Bryant McKinnie has been sued for $375,000 by a strip club manager who says he loaned the money to McKinnie over 19 months in 2009-10.

Charles “Pop” Young filed suit against the current Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle for the money on Monday, the station reports.

McKinnie denies the allegations and claims the owner of the strip club has repeatedly tried to borrow money from him. He told the Baltimore Sun, "I got no papers, I was never served. I just called my lawyer about this because this is a bogus story. What strip club gives you a $375,000 tab? It just sounds stupid to me. I've never heard of this in my life."

McKinnie took a $1 million pay cut to stay in Baltimore this past offseason and earns a $2.2 million salary, the Pioneer Press reports.

McKinnie has made headlines for his off-field activities before, the Pioneer Press notes. He was arrested in 2008 after a fight outside a Miami nightclub. McKinnie was a football star in college for the Miami Hurricanes.

McKinnie was also involved in the infamous 2005 "Love Boat" incident in which Vikings players on a Lake Minnetonka cruise partied with strippers, sex toys and excessive amounts of alcohol.
