Ravens sign guard Marshal Yanda to four-year contract extension

Friday October 16th, 2015

The Baltimore Ravens have signed Pro Bowl guard Marshal Yanda to a four-year contract extension, the team announced Friday.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the deal is worth $32 million over four years, with $17.8 million guaranteed. 

This is the guard’s second contract extension with Baltimore. Yanda was in the last year of his contract. 

“My family and I are very excited to stay with such an incredible organization,” Yanda said. “I look forward to carrying on the Baltimore Ravens’ great tradition. Hopefully I will finish my career as a Raven.”

“This is another example of Steve’s [Bisciotti] investment in winning. Marshal is not only a staple of our offensive line, but also a staple of our entire team. He is the best of what a Raven should be, and Steve recognizes that,” Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said Friday.

Yanda has been named to the Pro Bowl for the past four seasons. The Ravens selected Yanda in the third round of the 2007 NFL draft. He is the third-longest tenured Raven on the current roset.

The Ravens (1–4) will take on the San Francisco 49ers (1–4) on Sunday.
