Settling into Baltimore, Ravens rookie offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley now has a pet. But the sixth overall pick didn't spring for anything exotic. In fact, he did the opposite.
According to a Facebook tale by the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS), Stanley came into the shelter with his girlfriend and fellow Ravens rookie Alex Lewis over the weekend. The group proclaimed, "We are looking for [a] dog that's been here a long time and maybe not-so-adoptable."
Once thing led to another, and Stanley walked out with six-year-old Winter. Winter was found "on a vacant property, on a hot day with no electricity, or open windows."
She also has a long, hanging belly, a likely unfixable condition brought about by overbreeding.
Stanley played four years at Notre Dame, and was a consensus All-American in 2015. A Las Vegas native, he was the first offensive lineman taken in the 2016 NFL Draft.
