The Ravens would be better off holding on to Stanley for the 2024 season, even at a price that is above market value for him right now. It's impossible to guarantee that Baltimore would be able to land someone of equal or greater value over the next two years if they part with him.

Getting depth behind Stanley will be important, as the Ravens need to assume that he will miss some time during the season. Finding a competent backup for cheap could be a better idea than spending most of their financial wiggle room on a replacement while neglecting other needs.

The Baltimore Ravens need to hold on to Ronnie Stanley

The Ravens must acknowledge they had a great team last year, and they need to be weary about making too many subtractions from the equation. Losing your left tackle is a huge decision for Eric DeCosta to make, and getting rid of the blindside protector might not sit well with Jackson.

Stanley might be at the Last Chance Saloon, but he's put enough positives on film to warrant that last chance. The Ravens could be sent into a tailspin if they mess up their offensive line with an inferior replacement. Stanley, at his best, can be a big part of the solution to Baltimore's playoff struggles.
