Left winger Ronnie Stanley agreed to an extension of five years for the Baltimore Ravens on Friday.
The team announced the deal, which has a total value of $ 98.75 million with a signing bonus of $ 22.5 million.
“Ronnie is the mainstay of our offensive line,” said Eric DeCosta, Ravens general manager. “He’s a shutdown left-handed person who excels in the field and in our community. This is just the beginning for Ronnie, and we couldn’t be happier for him and his family.”
Stanley and the Ravens face the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
Stanley, 26, was an all-pro in 2019 and played number 6 in the 2016 NFL Draft with his fifth-year option attached to his rookie deal.
Unsurprisingly, he thinks the best is yet to come for himself and the ravens.
“I was just so happy to see all the work and dedication, my obsession with my technology is paying off,” said Stanley. “Everything my family has sacrificed over the years so that I can come here and live my dream.
“I feel like the Ravens do a really good job of picking out good talent and trying to keep that culture the way it always was. We’re family here and I think all the boys are on the same page as we’re trying to build here in Baltimore and that’s long-term success. “
Head coach John Harbaugh has repeatedly touted Stanley as a dedicated professional since making 12 starts as a rookie. In total, Stanley has started all 61 games he has played in.
“It matters to him, it matters to him, he wants to be the best,” said Harbaugh. “We’ve had a lot of conversations about it over the years, many parts of it. Different things come up, things that you have to do to be as good as he’s become. Most of all, he’s really a smart guy. He understands It’s worth hard work. He really is a technician of what he does. He talks about it all the time.
The Houston Texans have left Laremy Tunsil the highest-paid player on the position, based on annual value, with a three-year contract for $ 66 million signed earlier this year.
Anthony Castonzo of the Indianapolis Colts receives an average of $ 16.5 million per year for his two-year contract signed earlier this year.
Stanley’s average over the course of renewal is $ 19.75 million per season.
