Ronnie Stanley to see Laremy Tunsil again, months after infamous draft night

Ronnie Stanley to see Laremy Tunsil again, months after infamous draft night

OWINGS MILLS — Ronnie Stanley and Laremy Tunsil will be on the same field Sunday for the first time since Tunsil’s infamous draft night in April.

The Ravens took Stanley, their starting left tackle, with the No. 6 pick. But they were considering drafting Tunsil, until his Twitter account was hacked just hours before the draft, and someone posted a picture of Tunsil smoking a substance from a bong while wearing a gas mask.

Tunsil plummeted to the Dolphins, who took him with the 13th pick, and have started Tunsil at left guard when healthy. The Ravens host the Dolphins on Sunday, and, of course Stanley was asked about Tunsil following Wednesday’s practice.

“That’s my guy,” Stanley said. “We met at the draft. He’s a really awesome kid and a good person. I hated to see what happened to him (on draft night). I wish the best for him. I know he’s doing good out there in Miami. Other than that, that’s pretty much been our relationship.”

The Ravens have never regretted their decision to draft Stanley, who was anointed the starter from training camp. Note that the Ravens are 6-1 with Stanley in the lineup and 0-4 without him.

Missing four games in October with a foot injury was a setback for Stanley, but in his three games since returning, Stanley has gotten better each week.  

“The thing I like about Ronnie, I’ve said this before, is that Ronnie is very smart, to go on top of his talent,” said Ravens coach John Harbaugh. “He improves. He doesn’t make mistakes on top of the same mistake.”

Stanley watched Tunsil pay for a mistake on draft night. Asked how close the Ravens were to drafting Tunsil, Harbaugh said, “I would say it doesn’t matter, and really, there’s no way to measure it. I don’t even know, and I was in the draft room. I would probably say (general manager) Ozzie (Newsome) doesn’t know for sure. Or maybe Ozzie does, but he wasn’t telling us.”

With the Ravens and Dolphins both in playoff contention, Stanley said he won’t need extra motivation to outplay Tunsil on Sunday.

“I want to go out there and have a strong game for the win,” Stanley said. “I don’t do it for the bragging. I’ll say, ‘Congrats’ or, ‘What’s up?’ after, but the bottom line is I want to win.”

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: The return of Pernell McPhee

Kick off your Friday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news including the return of Pernell McPhee.

Player/Team Notes: 

1. Pernell McPhee is a Baltimore Raven again! The Ravens signed McPhee to a one-year deal according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. McPhee was drafted by the Ravens in 2011 during the fifth round and spent four seasons with the team before landing in Chicago and then last season in Washington. The Ravens hope to capitalize on McPhee's 31 career sacks as they hone-in on producing a "diversified pass rush."

2. The Ravens have also signed offensive lineman R.J. Prince, who was last with Pittsburgh. Prince was waived by the Steelers after not seeing a down during the 2018 season. The Steelers picked up Prince as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina.

3. Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson has been suspended for the first six games of the 2019 regular season. Peterson reportedly violated the NFL's performance-enhancement drug policy. The Ravens face the Cardinals during Week 2, so this is good news for the guys in purple.

4. The Ravens have reportedly signed former Denver Broncos linebacker Shane Ray, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ray had an unproductive season with the Broncos last year with one sack and one forced fumble in 11 games played.

Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.
