    To give the Baltimore Ravens additional room under the salary cap in 2012, Pro Bowl and All-Pro guard Marshal Yanda agreed to restructure the five-year, $32 million contract from last July, a league source confirmed. Originally scheduled to earn $4.5 million in base salary with a $6.5 million cap charge, Yanda has reduced his base salary to $700,000, with the remaining $3.8 million converted to a signing bonus and prorated over the four remaining seasons on his contract. By doing so, Yanda's cap number reduces to $3.65 million, a 2012 cap savings of $2.85 million. Prior to the restructure, the Ravens were about $1.5 million under the cap. The downside to the restructure is that Yanda's cap numbers in 2013, 2014 and 2015 will increase by $950,000, Yanda's new cap numbers those seasons are $7.45 million (2013) and $8.45 million in 2014 and 2015.
