“We haven’t really gotten into the actual contract proposals, negotiations, things like that,” DeCosta said.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Tuesday that he expects All-Pro left tackle Ronnie Stanley to rejoin team activities by this summer.
Stanley suffered what Harbaugh called a “severe” left ankle injury in a Week 8 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. During a virtual NFL scouting combine news conference Tuesday, Harbaugh said Stanley, who’s undergone two surgeries, has been rehabilitating in the team facility this offseason.
“I expect him to be back,” Harbaugh said. “It sounds good. I saw him in there [the facility] last week, and he said he was doing well. [Head athletic trainer] Ron Medlin tells me he’s doing well, he’s on schedule.”
If Stanley’s recovery is delayed, Harbaugh indicated that the Ravens would turn to Orlando Brown Jr., whose desire to play left tackle will likely result in his departure from Baltimore, either this offseason or when he reaches free agency in 2022. “So we’re in good shape,” Harbaugh said.
Harbaugh also said tight end Nick Boyle, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in Week 10, and cornerback Tavon Young, who tore his ACL in Week 2, are doing “great” in their recovery. All three players, Harbaugh said, are on track “for at least training camp,” and a return for organized team activities, which normally start in April, is “not out of the question, either.”
