After the Ravens re-signed OL Marshal Yanda on Tuesday, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh could hardly contain his excitement.
“We got Marshall Yanda! That’s great news,” Harbaugh said, via the Ravens official site.
“He told us he wanted to be a Raven and he understood the business part that he had to go through. I’m beaming, you see Ozzie smile and is there anyone more excited than [offensive line coach] Andy Moeller right now? We’re a better team than we were one hour ago.”
It wasn’t cheap, though. According to Ravens Insider Aaron Wilson, the contract is somewhere in the five-year, $32 million range.
Yanda was a huge part of the team last season, moving to RT in place of injured Jared Gaither and starting 16 games, and with Yanda, Gaither, Chris Chester and Tony Moll all Ravens OL in unrestricted free agency, the signing obviously is a huge sigh of relief for Baltimore.
