Ravens Re-Sign Webb To 3-Year Deal – The Baltimore Ravens brought one of their long-time defensive backs back at a reduced rate and a reduced role. Lardarius Webb, 31, was re-signed to a three-year deal by the Ravens on Saturday, according to a source. This comes nearly four weeks after Webb was cut by the team. Webb, who has been with Baltimore the past eight seasons, will back up safeties Eric Weddle and Tony Jefferson and add depth at slot cornerback. Webb had been scheduled to make $5.5 million in base salary this season, which was fifth-most on the team entering free agency. He likely had to take a significant pay cut to come back.
