Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome has confirmed that they have re-signed their No. 1 free agent priority Marshal Yanda.
“We got Marshall Yanda! That’s great news,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said. “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.”
Yanda would have gotten plenty of interest on the open market but chose to remain with the Ravens. If Baltimore was willing to give him a competitive deal then it really didn’t make a lot of sense to some where else. Good deal for the Ravens.
