The Baltimore Ravens announced a multi-year deal with veteran offensive guard-tackle Marshal Yanda.
Yanda's contract was expected to come in at an annual average of roughly $7 million over five years for a total value of $32 million, according to a league source.
The Ravens cleared $18.6 million in salary cap space by planning roster cuts for Todd Heap, Willis McGahee, Derrick Mason and Kelly Gregg.
Yanda provides a lot of flexibility to the line with his ability to play guard and tackle.
"We got Marshall Yanda!" coach John Harbaugh told the Ravens' official website. "That's great news. He told us he wanted to be a Raven and he understood the business part that he had to go through. I'm beaming. We're a better team than we were one hour ago."
