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.
