Ravens' Yanda not worried about contract negotiations
Ravens guard Marshal Yanda is entering the final year of his contract, but he isn't letting that get in the way of the task at hand.
Yanda rated far and away as the league's best offensive lineman by Pro Football Focus last season. While negotiations for a new contract are at an impasse, Yanda is confident it will get done.
"I'm focused on the mandatory minicamp right now," Yanda said after Tuesday's first mandatory workout of the offseason, per The Baltimore Sun. "We'll worry about that when the time comes. Right now, I'm focused on getting better as a football player. I'm not too worried about it. We'll get it done when we get it done. I'm not too worried about it."
The 30-year-old Yanda is due to make $5.5 million as part of the $32 million extension he signed in 2012. Fellow guard Kelechi Osemele is also up for a new deal, and it may be a tough task for general manager Ozzie Newsome to get both players under contract.
