OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Baltimore Ravens still expect Professional Bowl guard Marshal Yanda to play this year, a team source said on Tuesday.

There’d been speculation which Yanda contemplated retirement. Yanda, 34, is scheduled to earn $7 million in the year of his contract.

At the scouting combine, coach said Yanda will be”coming straight back and ready to roll up.”

Yanda is actually a Pro Bowl player who’s thought of as one of this past decade’s defenses. He is an integral part of ’s run-heavy offense with quarterback Lamar Jackson.

“In regards to Marshal, we love Marshal and we’d love Marshal to keep on to play us for years,” Ravens general director Eric DeCosta said at Tuesday’s pre-draft news summit. “He is a terrific player. He is still playing in a high stage. He is a Raven. You can define a Raven and set an image of Marshal Yanda up there and that’s him.”
