Lardarius Webb, a restricted free agent for the Ravens, had a huge year for Baltimore as a would-be (should-be?) Pro-Bowl cornerback. And the Ravens have rewarded him, announcing that they signed Webb to a six-year contract.
Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times reports that it's actually a five-year extension worth $50 million with a $10 million signing bonus.
"Lardarius is an important player for the Ravens and we’re very happy he will be with us for a long time,” General Manager Ozzie Newsome said. “We have a good history of completing second contracts for targeted players we want to keep for the long haul. We did that recently with Jameel McClain, just like we did with Haloti (Ngata), ‘Sizzle,’ (Terrell Suggs), ‘J.J.’ (Jarret Johnson), Marshal (Yanda) – and many more through the years."
Webb was fantastic in coverage last season -- ProFootballFocus.com notes that he didn't allow a single touchdown in 2011 and quarterbacks throwing in his direction had a 55.6 rating.
Additionally, Webb intercepted five passes in the regular season and three more in the playoffs, had 20 passes defended overall and recorded 68 tackles.
