The Baltimore Ravens signed G Marshal Yanda to a four-year contract extension, general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome announced Friday.
A four-time Pro Bowler (2011-14), Yanda, 31, earned first-team All-Pro honors in 2014. The nine-year veteran has played in 120 games (109 starts) during his career, marking the third most among offensive linemen in Ravens history (Jonathan Ogden – 177 and Mike Flynn – 133).
“My family and I are very excited to stay with such an incredible organization,” Yanda stated. “We feel fortunate to have reached an extension, and I look forward to carrying on the Baltimore Ravens’ great tradition. Hopefully, I will finish my career as a Raven.”
Prior to the 2015 campaign, Ravens’ season ticket holders voted Yanda one of the Top 10 players in the franchise’s 20-year existence.
Baltimore originally selected Yanda in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft. He helped the Ravens win Super Bowl XLVII in 2012 and has been an integral piece of an organization that earned playoff appearances in six of the past seven seasons.
