With OGs Marshal Yanda and Kelechi Osemele entering the final year of their deals, Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said the team could target offensive guards in the draft.
"If some very good offensive linemen are there for us to draft, then we will take them," Newsome said. With several players set to be unrestricted free agents next offseason and Joe Flacco set for an extension, it will be difficult for Baltimore to retain both Yanda and Osemele. Osemele is five years younger than Yanda and played at an All-Pro level last season, but Yanda has been one of the top offensive linemen in the league over the last five years. Apr 11 - 9:21 AM

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda is a candidate for an extension.

Yanda is scheduled to count $8.45 million against the cap in the final year of his contract. The Ravens could create cap room with an extension and allow him to finish his career in Baltimore. 30-year-old Yanda was PFF's top-rated guard this past season. ESPN's Jamison Hensley believes a four-year, $30 million deal with a signing bonus in the range of $12 million could make sense for both sides.

John Eisenberg of the Ravens' official website mentions RG Marshal Yanda as a potential salary cap casualty.

However, Eisenberg made it clear that he doesn't believe the Ravens will cut Yanda. Baltimore had massive offensive-line issues in 2013, but Yanda wasn't part of the problem. The 29-year-old graded out as a top-16 guard at Pro Football Focus and is very athletic. GM Ozzie Newsome needs to address the center and tackle positions on his front-five unit. Cutting Yanda would only save the Ravens a little under $2 million against the 2014 salary cap.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda is "ahead of schedule" in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery.

Yanda missed the Ravens' entire offseason program and will likely be eased into training camp. The Baltimore Sun considers Yanda, Haloti Ngata (knee) and Terrence Cody (hip) candidates to be placed on the active/PUP list.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

He's sitting out OTAs and minicamp, but will be ready for training camp. Despite myriad injuries entering year seven of his career -- he's undergone thigh and shoulder surgeries and two knee operations -- Yanda continues to play at an All-Pro level. He graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 overall guard in 2012.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda (ankle) expects to rejoin the starting lineup for Sunday's Wild-Card round game versus the Colts.

"I'm playing," said Yanda, "and I'm going to be going 100 percent on Sunday." The All-Pro caliber guard sustained a high-ankle sprain in Week 14, so take his "100 percent" claim with a grain of salt.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda (ankle) isn't practicing this week, and is in a walking boot.

He has a high-ankle sprain. Yanda will miss Sunday's game against the Broncos, and should be considered week-to-week. Jah Reid and Bobbie Williams should be the Ravens' starting guards against Denver.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda suffered a sprained ankle in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Redskins.

It looks like a multi-week injury. Yanda was sporting crutches and a walking boot on his way out of the stadium. Baltimore's best offensive lineman, Yanda grades out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 guard this season. His absence would be unwelcome news for Ray Rice's fantasy owners.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda restructured his contract in order to give the team some cap relief.

He dropped his 2012 salary to $700,000 and converted the remainder of his previous $4.5 million base into a signing bonus, which will be prorated through 2015. Yanda signed a five-year, $32.5 million blockbuster contract last summer. He proceeded to grade as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 guard in the entire league.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda underwent surgery to address compartment syndrome in his thigh on December 24.

Yanda played through the compartment syndrome and a rib injury late in the season. "My ribs are feeling good and my leg is feeling good, too," said Yanda. "The bye week was huge. I'm going to practice today." Despite playing at less than 100 percent, Yanda graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 overall guard in 2011, behind only Evan Mathis (Eagles) and Carl Nicks (Saints).

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda played in Week 17 through badly bruised ribs and cartilage "that has separated from the bone."

"There is no one tougher than Marshal," said coach John Harbaugh. "That is a reflection of our whole team. He optimizes that, certainly." Yanda made his first career Pro Bowl in 2011. He has a first-round bye to heal up.

Ravens RG Marshal Yanda (ribs) is not expected to play in next week’s game against the Bengals.

Yanda was forced from Week 16 with "bruised ribs" and is looking like a long shot to be active with Andre Gurode capable of filling in at right guard. "I don't know if it's broken yet or not," Yanda said. "We'll find out. I can't breathe real well right now. I can't do deep breaths."

Ravens OC Cam Cameron noted that RG Marshal Yanda could still be moved back to right tackle to start the season.

It would be out of necessity, not preference. Oneil Cousins has been moved inside for good, and it may be asking too much of rookie Jah Reid to step in as the immediate starter at right tackle. Taking Yanda from guard would hurt Ray Rice and help Joe Flacco.

Ravens agreed to terms with RG Marshal Yanda on a five-year, $32 million contract.

One previous report stated that Yanda turned down an offer of $6.5 million per season, so the Ravens came out better than expected. They made it clear all along that Yanda would be a top priority. Yanda graded out as a top-five tackle, according to Pro Football Focus, but the Ravens plan to kick him back inside at right guard to jumpstart a running game that struggled last season.

NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports that the Ravens made free agent G/T Marshal Yanda a contract offer worth roughly $6.5 million a year before the lockout, but Yanda rejected it.

La Canfora calls Yanda the best free agent offensive lineman on the market, and he clearly anticipates making more money than that. It's expected that the Redskins will also pursue Yanda, who is the Ravens' top priority to re-sign. La Canfora suggests Baltimore may have to pay him nearly $8 million a year.
