Marshal Yanda ranked 79th on NFL Network list of top 100 players

Ravens All-Pro offensive guard Marshal Yanda is ranked 79th on the NFL Network annual list of top 100 players in the NFL.

Yanda, 30, is the lone guard to make the list so far.


Yanda was ranked 55th on the list last season, the first year he was selected.

A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Yanda is entering the final year of a four-year, $20 million contract extension signed in 2012.


The Ravens have expressed a desire to sign Yanda to a contract extension.

A 2007 third-round draft pick from Iowa, Yanda signed a five-year, $32 million contract in 2011.

Yanda has built a reputation as a gritty, durable blocker willing to play through injuries.

Yanda has started 104 of 115 career games in eight NFL seasons.
