It appears the 13-year veteran, Marshal Yanda, is expected to announce his retirement from the NFL, according to Barstool Banks on Twitter.
Hearing Marshal Yanda will be announcing his retirement this week, possibly as soon as Wednesday. Next stop: Canton.— Big Truss Banks (@BarstoolBanks) March 10, 2020
To those skeptical, this is coming from the same individual who had the Ravens’ 2019 season schedule before anybody else and also first reported the Marcus Peters trade. It sounds as if his source is rather reliable.
If this is the end of Marshal Yanda’s career, he played a great one. He played in 177 NFL games and started in 166 of them, accumulating a grand total of 7,376 offensive snaps. Across those 177 games, Yanda totaled only 43 penalties. In 2017, he produced a perfect season with zero penalties.
As for achievements, Yanda is an eight-time Pro Bowler and seven-time All-Pro (2x First-Team, 5x Second-Team). Yanda is also a Super Bowl XLVII Champion. More than anything, he is deserving of a bronze bust in Canton, Ohio, joining 15 other guards in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
