Ravens OL Ronnie Stanley Suffers Serious-Looking Leg Injury Just Days After Signing Massive $99 Million Contract Extension


The Ravens suffered a brutal loss on Sunday when offensive lineman Ronnie Stanley went down with a serious-looking injury.

Just two days ago, Stanley become one of the highest paid offensive lineman when he signed a massive 5-year $99 million contract extension.


Stanley becomes the NFL’s second-highest-paid left tackle, striking a $98.75 million extension, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. His annual average of $19.75 million trails only that of Houston’s Laremy Tunsil ($22 million per season).

Stanley’s deal maxes out at $112.866 million, the source said. He did surpass Tunsil in three areas: signing bonus ($22.5 million), total guarantees ($70.866 million, over $16 million more than Tunsil) and payout through March 31 ($47.116 million).

During the second quarter of the Ravens-Steelers game, Stanley was carted off the field after sustaining a devastating leg injury.

Update: He’s out for the season.
