Ravens Close To Re-Signing S Lardarius Webb

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is reporting that the Ravens are nearing a deal to re-sign veteran S Lardarius Webb.

On Wednesday, Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome told reporters that they could be signing a veteran free agent at some point in the near future, and it appears as though he was referring to Webb.

The Ravens elected to cut Webb loose shortly after they signed Tony Jefferson to a big-money contract at the start of free agency, but a report later mentioned that there was still a possibility he could return to Baltimore.

Webb also came up as a potential option for the Vikings as well, but there hasn’t been a lot of buzz regarding him in recent weeks.

Webb, 31, is a former third-round pick of the Ravens back in 2009. He has spent his entire eight-year career with the Ravens and was entering the final year of his six-year, $52.742 million contract when the Ravens released him a move that freed up $5.5 million of available cap space.

In 2016, Webb appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens and recorded 73 tackles, one sack, an interception and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 15 safety out of 89 qualifying players.
