Ravens Free Up $3.975M In Cap Space By Reworking Marshal Yanda’s Contract

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Ravens have restructured the contract of veteran G Marshal Yanda and created $3.975 million in cap space.

The Ravens converted $5.3 million of Yanda’s $6.19 million 2016 base salary into a signing bonus, according to Yates.

Baltimore could use the extra money, and with Yanda being one of the best guards in the NFL, it seems like a decent move to take the cap space, even if it pushes up his future cap hits.

Yanda, 31, is entering the second year of his five-year, $34.14 million contract that included $17.8 million guaranteed. He was set to make a base salary of $6.186 million for the 2016 season.

In 2015, Yanda appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens, and rates as the No. 1 guard out of 81 qualifying players, according to Pro Football Focus.
