Marshal Yanda’s post-Ravens life now includes Instagram and giant yellowfin tuna

When Marshal Yanda was enjoying what became the final practices of his football career, at the Pro Bowl in January, the longtime Ravens guard told Baltimore’s WJZ-TV that he planned to spend part of his offseason tuna-fishing in Mexico.

That was to be expected. Yanda’s appetite for the outdoors is so well known that when the eight-time Pro Bowl selection retired after 13 NFL seasons last month, former Ravens teammate and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata asked him for an invitation to go fishing and hunting.

What was not expected: The social media-averse Yanda spending part of his retirement downtime sharing photos from the trip on his long-dormant Instagram account.

Yanda’s first-ever post features a couple of yellowfin tuna that, by the looks of them, probably put up a better fight than some Ravens opponents last season. (According to posts from accounts of fishing charters tagged in Yanda’s post, the trip happened about a month ago, before social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic became commonplace.)

“Congrats bro,” Jacksonville Jaguars center Brandon Linder wrote in the comments. “Stud tuna.”

“Living his best life,” Ravens center Matt Skura said of Yanda’s post in an Instagram story.

With Instagram mastered, it’s only a matter of time before the slimmed-down Yanda starts dancing on TikTok.
