The Ravens are trying to get CB Lardarius Webb to restructure his contract.
Due an excessive $8 million base salary in 2015 while counting $12 million against the cap, Webb is a candidate for a pay cut after an awful, injury-riddled age-29 season. The Ravens will hope Webb's ineffectiveness was due to injuries, as he's not really a release candidate since the Ravens would save just $2 million against the cap. It would be in Baltimore's best interest to find an outside corner to pair with Jimmy Smith and move Webb inside full-time. Feb 24 - 8:04 PM

The Ravens would create just $2 million in salary cap space by releasing LCB Lardarius Webb.

His release would also create $10 million in dead money. After battling myriad early-season health problems, Webb played well enough late in 2014 that the Ravens may be best off crossing their fingers he finds pre-injury form. When Webb and Jimmy Smith are healthy, they're among the NFL's best cornerback tandems. Webb is still only 29 and won't turn 30 until October.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley believes CB Lardarius Webb will be asked to take a pay cut this offseason.

Owed $8 million in salary in 2015, Webb will count $12 million against the Ravens cap under his current contract. Webb improved as he became healthy down the stretch in 2014, but his play the last two seasons does not justify that level of investment. Baltimore could save $2 million against the cap by cutting him outright, but they would have to eat $10 million in dead money.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb is a candidate for offseason release.

Webb is due an $8 million base salary in 2015. He's struggled with injuries and has been a liability in coverage, grading out as a bottom-12 corner by PFF. The Ravens can save $2 million in cap space by cutting Webb after the season. Webb will need to accept a pay cut to avoid getting released.

Ravens secondary coach Steve Spagnuolo admits CB Lardarius Webb might still be fighting his back injury a bit.

Although Webb hasn't been on the injury report since Week 3, the Ravens are looking for reasons why he's struggling so badly. Webb has just six PBUs in seven games after getting 22 last season and is PFF's No. 101 corner out of 106 qualifiers. This Ravens secondary is not one to fear with Jimmy Smith (foot) out for the season.

Ravens declared CB Lardarius Webb inactive for Sunday's Week 4 game against the Panthers.

Webb is not known to be injured, so this looks like a healthy scratch. Coming off a back injury, he managed just four snaps in Week 3 anyway. Look for Jimmy Smith to shadow Kelvin Benjamin. In good news for the Ravens, Chris Canty (knee) is active. The rest of their inactives: WR Michael Campanaro (River Hill), ILB Arthur Brown, G John Urschel, DL Lawrence Guy, DT Timmy Jernigan and OT Eugene Monroe.

Ravens declared RCB Lardarius Webb, WR Michael Campanaro, WR Deonte Thompson, OT Jah Reid, OG John Urschel, DL Christo Bilukidi and LB Arthur Brown inactive for Week 2 against the Steelers.

Webb was a game-time decision. His absence leaves Jimmy Smith, Chykie Brown and Asa Jackson as the Ravens' top three corners. It's a nice little boost for Ben Roethlisberger in a game with a modest over/under of 44 points. Webb should return for Week 3 against the Browns.

Ravens RCB Lardarius Webb (back) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Steelers.

Webb practiced in full on Wednesday, but could be held out with the Ravens playing on a short week. Jimmy Smith and Chykie Brown will start in base sets if Webb can't go, with Asa Jackson playing in nickel packages.

Ravens declared CB Ladarius Webb (back) inactive for Week 1 against Cincinnati.

Baltimore is down to three cornerbacks after releasing Derek Cox on Saturday; Jimmy Smith, Asa Jackson, and Chykie Brown. Mohamed Sanu could have some openings opposite A.J. Green. The rest of the Ravens' inactives are WR Michael Campanaro, ILB Arthur Brown, OL John Urschel, OL Jah Reid, WR Deonte Thompson, and RB Fitzgerald Toussaint.

Lardarius Webb (questionable, back) is not expected to play in Sunday's opener against the Bengals.

It's a surprise considering Webb practiced in full this week and the Ravens released Derek Cox on Saturday. Jimmy Smith, Asa Jackson, and Chykie Brown will be Baltimore's top three corners. Webb should return in Week 2.

CBs Jimmy Smith, Lardarius Webb and Asa Jackson are all expected to miss the Ravens' third preseason game Saturday.

Smith is recovering from the chest contusion he suffered in the second preseason game. Webb has been out since late-July with back spasms. Asa Jackson has a sprained ankle. All three are expected back for Week 1.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb (back) will not play in the final two preseason games.

He's been out since July 25 with back spasms. There's no structural damage, so the Ravens are just taking it day-by-day with Webb. His status for Week 1 is in question, but the team hasn't indicated Webb is in danger of missing the opener. Baltimore's secondary is its biggest concern on that side of the ball.

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb (back) is expected to miss at least the first two preseason games.

Webb has been sidelined with back spasms since the second day of camp, but tests revealed no structural damage. "He's just got some things going on in there, they're not long-term things," said coach John Harbaugh. Back spasms are fairly common. We suspect Webb will be fine for Week 1.

Tests conducted on Ravens CB Lardarius Webb's ailing back revealed no structural damage.

Webb hurt his back in Friday's practice. It's apparently a muscular issue. Rest and rehab are the prescribed treatment, and Webb will be evaluated day-by-day and week-by-week. He's fully expected to be fine for the opener.
Wed, Jul 30, 2014 10:14:00 AM

Ravens CB Lardarius Webb injured his back in Friday's practice and will have it evaluated in the next few days.

Per the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens' "level of concern" has increased. After tearing his ACL in 2012, Webb started all 16 games last season and was a top-23 corner at Pro Football Focus. He'll line up as the starter opposite Jimmy Smith in the Ravens' base defense and cover the slot in sub-packages.
