Left tackle Ronnie Stanley agreed to a five-year extension with the Baltimore Ravens on Friday.

The team announced the deal which reports pegged at a $98.75 million total value with a $22.5 million signing bonus.

Stanley and the Ravens face the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

An All-Pro in 2019, the 26-year-old Stanley was playing on his fifth-year option tied to his rookie deal as the No. 6 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Head coach John Harbaugh has praised Stanley as a dedicated professional since he made 12 starts as a rookie.

Houston Texans left tackle Laremy Tunsil is the highest-paid player at the position based on annual value with a three-year, $66 million deal signed earlier this year.

Anthony Castonzo of the Indianapolis Colts averages $16.5 million per year on his two-year deal signed this year.

Stanley's average over the course of the extension is $19.75 million per season.
