Ravens re-signed DB Lardarius Webb to a three-year contract.
Webb was released earlier this offseason for cap purposes. The new deal lowers his base salary and keeps him signed through 2019. Webb won't be a starter behind Tony Jefferson, but will push for snaps in the slot and as the No. 3 safety. Apr 8 - 6:43 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Ravens are "nearing a deal" with DB Lardarius Webb.

Baltimore cut Webb for cap reasons in early March, but a reunion always seemed to be in the cards. Webb played well in his first full season at safety last year, but he will return as depth behind Eric Weddle and newly-signed Tony Jefferson. Webb should also compete at slot corner, which is a role he played well in the past.
Apr 6 - 10:32 AM

The St. Paul Pioneer-Press reports the Vikings are "exploring" free agent DB Lardarius Webb.

Webb was cut by the Ravens three days ago. A reunion is reportedly possible, but taking visits increases Webb's scant leverage. A career cornerback, Webb converted to safety in 2016, and had a decent year. It shouldn't take him long to find a new home.

Ravens released FS Lardarius Webb.

A third-round pick in 2009, Webb's release ends an eight-year run for him in Baltimore. One of the better slot cornerbacks in the league in his prime, Webb was moved to free safety last season when age caught up with him. The Ravens have since signed S Tony Jefferson to pair with Eric Weddle on the back end. Webb's release saves the Ravens $5.5 million. He turns 32 this year.

The Ravens can save $5.5 million from releasing FS Lardarius Webb.

Webb had an uneven year as a full-time safety, but came on in the second half. Entering his age-32 season, it's possible Baltimore replaces him with a younger free agent like Tony Jefferson. The Ravens are also expected to add secondary depth in the draft.
Feb 10 - 5:24 PM

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he thinks converted CB Lardarius Webb will be a "really good safety."

"He learns fast. I don’t think he’s going to have any problem picking up the position," Harbaugh said. "You can drop him down to cover receivers in the slot. You can blitz him. He can play outside if you want him to." Webb played corner for most of last season, but he played almost exclusively at free safety in the season finale. That should be his primary position in base sets moving forward. The Ravens would probably like Webb to accept a pay cut prior to free agency, but it sounds like he will be in the starting lineup bookending Will Hill regardless of his contract situation.

The Ravens could ask DB Lardarius Webb for a pay cut.

Webb has been in decline the last two years and is due a $10 million cap hit. He’s expected to move to safety full time, making him less valuable. Baltimore’s $6.1 million cap space is the second worst in the league behind Buffalo.

Ravens DB Lardarius Webb believes his future is at safety.

Webb played almost exclusively at free safety in the season finale, and he suggested after the game that move could be permanent. "It will just come to the time when they want me to make that move — now or three years from now. It happened now," Webb said. "We're trying to become a more athletic secondary. Me at free safety, I think that will help out a lot with me roaming the middle of the field and just being able to have more control of the defense." A solid slot corner, Webb could excel in a similar role to Malcolm Jenkins in Philadelphia, who plays safety in base looks and covers the slot in sub packages. The Ravens secondary played better over the second half of the season, but it will still be an area Baltimore attempts to address this offseason.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb (thigh) is active for Monday night's Week 7 game against the Cardinals.

Webb was questionable on the injury report. He covers the slot in sub-packages and will spend most of his time there Monday against Larry Fitzgerald and John Brown. Inactive for the Ravens are WR Breshad Perriman, WR Jeremy Butler, FS Kendrick Lewis, S Terrence Brooks, OG Ryan Jensen, TE Maxx Williams (knee, ankle), and DT Kapron Lewis-Moore.

Ravens LCB Lardarius Webb (hamstring) has resumed practicing.

The injury-prone Webb will end up missing the entire preseason, but he's on track for the opener in 13 days.

The Ravens are "concerned" about LCB Lardarius Webb (hamstring) missing the preseason.

"It's certainly a concern," DC Dean Pees said. "I'd be fooling if I told you that I didn't think it was a concern." Webb failed the Ravens' initial conditioning test, and then went down with his hamstring ailment on August 10. Webb was banged up and ineffective for the majority of 2014. It's unclear if his Week 1 status is in doubt.

Ravens LCB Lardarius Webb has resumed practicing at training camp.

Webb failed his conditioning test on the first day of camp, but should be all systems go moving forward. He'll be the Ravens' starting left corner this year, with Jimmy Smith on the right side and Kyle Arrington in the slot.

Ravens LCB Lardarius Webb has failed his conditioning test, and will not practice until he passes.

"It’s always a big deal," coach John Harbaugh said of Webb failing his test. Webb had been a candidate for release before taking a pay cut. Headed into his age-30 season, Webb got off to a slow start in 2014 as he battled a back injury, but finished the year on a higher note. He should pass his test in a few days. He's starting opposite Jimmy Smith this season.

Ravens LCB Lardarius Webb is campaigning to return punts.

Jacoby Jones returned punts for the Ravens in 2014, but he signed with San Diego after being cut in the offseason. Asa Jackson and Michael Campanaro are also candidates to fill Baltimore's vacant punt return job. 29-year-old Webb has returned 53 punts in his career for an average of 9.83 yards.

Ravens LCB Lardarius Webb is completely healthy entering training camp.

Injuries have derailed what was once a promising career for Webb. Since bursting onto the scene in 2011, Webb has dealt with a torn ACL, back injury and groin issues the last three seasons. Finally healthy, the Ravens are relying on Webb and RCB Jimmy Smith to shore up a pass defense that struggled in 2014.
