Lardarius Webb

One of the NFL’s worst cornerbacks in 2014, Webb came into this season healthy and with a fresh pay cut.  2015 is a prove it year for him, and despite not completely embarrassing himself so far (ranked 38th out of 169 NFL cornerbacks by PFF), he is injured far too often.

Webb doesn’t exactly fit the mold of our free agent exercise because he is still under contract for the 2016 season, but the Ravens can save $6 million of the $12 million dollars they owe him by cutting him this next offseason.  That, of course, would leave $6 million in dead money on the books.

After his latest injury and given the team’s horrendous struggles in the secondary, it just feels like the time is right to blow things up and start over.  By getting rid of Webb, a player who has been either in the medical ward or on the field getting burned over the last couple of seasons, the Ravens could get that process started.
