Yanda isn't concerned about his contract status, however.
"I'm focused on the mandatory minicamp right now," Yanda said, per the Baltimore Sun. "We'll worry about that when the time comes. Right now, I'm focused on getting better as a football player. I'm not too worried about it. We'll get it done when we get it done. I'm not too worried about it."
Yanda is in the final season of a five-year, $32.5 million contract he signed in 2011. The four-time Pro Bowl selection will turn 31 years old in September so his side will not look to compromise in the negotiations.
Mike Iupati, a three-time Pro Bowl guard, signed a five-year, $40 million deal with the Cardinals at the start of free agency. The Chargers signed Orlando Franklin to a five-year, $36.5 million free-agent contract this offseason. Those deals set the bar high for the Ravens to retain one the NFL's premier guards.
Yanda was recently named the fifth-best player in the NFL by Profootballfocus.com.
Yanda is slated to earn a $5.5 million base salary and carry an $8.45 million cap number heading into 2015, the final year of his contract. Yanda's regarded as one of the top interior linemen in the NFL, making him a prime candidate for the Ravens to work a new deal out with.
