Could Redskins Target Ravens' Yanda?

In a story posted on SB Nation's Washington Redskins blog, Hogs Haven, they recommend that their team go right after Baltimore Ravens guard/tackle Marshal Yanda once free agency finally opens up for business again. Steveo26, who wrote the story, justifies the reasoning with a bevy of stats and research, promoting Yanda as a young versatile lineman who could jump right in and start at either guard or tackle for the offensive line-challenged Redskins.

Yanda has played both positions with decent success for Baltimore, despite being figured to be better suited to stay inside at right guard. However, due to injuries, Marshal was moved to where he was most needed and performed admirably and now appears on the verge of getting a big payday.

That could be the reason the Ravens do not get into a bidding war for his services, according to the story, whch predicts a 5-7 year contract in the neighborhood of $6 million per season, a huge pay raise for the 27 year old Yanda. No offense to Washington, although I guess there would be every reason to offend them, but most Ravens fans, much less the team itself, would prefer to see Marshall in purple rather than "crimson" in 2011.
