The Sports Xchange

The Baltimore Ravens signed guard Marshal Yanda to a four-year contract extension Friday.

Yanda, 31, was entering the final year of a five-year, $32.5 million contract that he signed in 2011.

A four-time Pro Bowler (2011-14), Yanda 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 at 177 and Mike Flynn at 133).

“My family and I are very excited to stay with such an incredible organization,” Yanda said in a statement. “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.”

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 part of the team’s playoff appearances in six of the past seven seasons.
