Veteran Safety Lardarius Webb Says Goodbye to Baltimore

Posted Mar 12, 2018

Baltimore would clear nearly $2 million in salary-cap space by releasing Lardarius Webb, who has spent nine seasons with the Ravens.

Veteran Ravens safety Lardarius Webb has tweeted goodbye to Baltimore, as the Ravens have terminated the veteran's contract.

Webb, 32, is the Ravens’ second-longest tenured defender, only trailing outside linebacker Terrell Suggs. A third-round pick out of Nicholls State in 2009, Webb has been in Baltimore for nine seasons.

The move frees up $1.75 million in salary-cap space, per Spotrac.

Webb was cut last offseason but re-signed with the team about a month later. This time, the Ravens have more youth and depth in the secondary.

Webb spent last year mostly in a backup and mentoring role. He made three starts and notched 39 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions.

Webb was a longtime fixture in Baltimore’s defense. He began as a scrappy 5-foot-10 slot corner growing under the watch of Ed Reed and Ray Lewis. He overcame an ACL tear at the end of his rookie season, then another midway through 2012.

Still, Webb was a reliable starting cornerback for five seasons before making the transition to safety in 2016, where he started all 16 games.

He has 400 career tackles, five sacks, 91 passes defensed and 15 interceptions. Webb was also a great punt returner early in his career and notched two return touchdowns (one kickoff, one punt). He was used as a fair-catch specialist in recent years.
