Report: Ravens bringing back Lardarius Webb

AP

The Ravens spent the offseason reshaping their secondary.

But they chose to bring back one of their old guys, albeit at a reduced rate.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, the Ravens are close to a deal to bring back veteran defensive back Lardarius Webb.

The cornerback-turned-safety was released in March, saving $5.5 million in cap space. And since they had already signed free agent Tony Jefferson (later adding cornerback Brandon Carr), it was justifiable at the time.

But Webb’s a trusted veteran they wanted to keep around, so letting him come back at a lower number gives them a solid backup to Jefferson and Eric Weddle, and someone who can still work as a slot corner.

  1. lol

    This reminds me of what BB was transitioning and rebuilding on the fly in 2009, but he was also busy loading up on picks, trading back and shedding big contracts.

    Ozzie’s flaw here, is he’s ADDED bloated contracts with Flacco, Weddle, Tony Jefferson, Mike Wallace, etc.

  2. This is the move of a great organization. Save cap space. Let the veteran test the market. Offer a smaller amount for longevity of the player’s career. Win-Win. Great high character guy!

  3. Good move Webb’s play was much better last year than previous years and now the Ravens are getting him at a reduced price.

    The great Wizard of Oz strikes again.

    Hate on though…

    No one is hating on your 8-8 record. enjoy!

  5. This bum…hes been hurt or ineffective for years, i was hoping he was finally gone. With how much money hes made, he better be playing for free lol.

    Oz needs to stop w the aging veterans, the game is too fast to not have young guys.

    ————————————————-

    2 SB Championships in our short time in the NFL. Keep hating though…

  7. Our play at safety last year wasn’t bad it was the play at CB that really hurt us, especially when Smith was hurt (I still believe that if Smith was healthy against the Steelers we go to the playoffs)
    Having said that, this isn’t a bad move as long as the price is right

  8. If Ravens get foster in draft, D will be tough. Webby is done, though. Not a great move….

  9. This is a mute point. Martavis is coming back. The division is the Steelers’ again. Done deal…

  10. The Ravens really don’t have any safety depth behind Weddle and Jefferson besides special teamer Anthony Levine, this was probably the best move for the team and the player.
