The Baltimore Ravens exercised left tackle Ronnie Stanley’s fifth-year option on Tuesday, putting him under contract through 2020.

The option, which is guaranteed for injury only, will be worth around $13 million in 2020. Stanley’s rookie contract was worth $13.1 million over the first four seasons, including a $3.2 million salary for 2019.

Stanley, 25, was drafted sixth overall in 2016 by Baltimore and has started 42 games through three seasons. He has committed 18 penalties and allowed 6.5 sacks, per STATS LLC, in his career, including six penalties and four sacks in 2018.

General manager Eric DeCosta told reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine last month that Stanley’s option was likely to be picked up.

“I think he’s playing extremely well, and I loved the way he finished the season,” DeCosta said. “We’re excited about him moving forward. He’s a great young man, he’s motivated, he’s a good player at a really, really important position.”
