Malcolm Jenkins wants more from NFL: 'Tokenism really doesn’t mean that much'
Malcolm Jenkins is a Saints safety and a social activist who has helped bring more awareness to racial injustice. But he's just getting started.It already includes two Super Bowl victories, three Pro Bowl selections, nearly 900 tackles and seven pick-sixes, including one thrown by fellow social justice champion, Colin Kaepernick.
Between Sept. 13 and March 31, 2021, Stanley will make more than $47 million, per NFL Network and ESPN. The contract keeps him with the Ravens through the 2025 season.
Stanley's new contract makes him the second-highest paid left tackle in the NFL behind the Houston Texans' Laremy Tunsil, who makes $22 million per year (Stanley will make $19.75 million, but is guaranteed $20 million more than Tunsil).
Stanley, 26, was the No. 6 overall pick out of Notre Dame in 2016 and made his first Pro Bowl last season, on top of a first-team All-Pro selection.
"Ronnie is the mainstay on our offensive line," Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said in the team's announcement, which did not reveal terms. "He's a shutdown left tackle who excels on the field and in our community. This is just the beginning for Ronnie, and we could not be happier for him and his family."
Opinion: In thrashing Aaron Rodgers, Buccaneers prove they're more than the Tom Brady show
Tom Brady put the Bucs in the spotlight this season, but it was the defense that stood out Sunday as Tampa Bay made a statement against Aaron Rodgers.Let Devin White, the high-energy Bucs linebacker, relay the prodding that came from his coordinator on the sideline. After falling behind 10-0, the Bucs needed to change their mindset in a hurry.
Earlier this month, the Ravens signed Marlon Humphrey – a 24-year-old who joined Stanley on the first-team All-Pro squad last season – to a five-year, $97.5 million extension.
