The Baltimore Ravens have seen a lot of turnover this offseason, especially on the defensive side of the football, but one thing has certainly been overlooked and that is the return of Lardarius Webb.
Webb was having an excellent start to the season last year before he tore his ACL in the week six matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. He was bordering becoming a legitimate shut down corner in 2012 as he had recorded 25 tackles with six passes defended, one interception, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble.
John Harbaugh stated on the Ravens' official website that he fully expects Webb to be ready once training camp begins at the end of July. During mini-camp, Webb was showing great quickness and ability to change directions while working on individual drills.
Webb is looking to become one of the leaders of the Ravens' defense as they welcome in a slew of new pieces to the Black and Purple. With the emergence of Corey Graham and the high expectations for Jimmy Smith, Baltimore could have quite a cornerback group with Webb leading the way.
This will not be the first time Webb has had to overcome an ACL tear as he tore the ACL in his other leg his rookie season, thus having gone through the process before gives Webb an advantage in knowing how to rehab and when to push or not push it.
Webb could be poised for a huge year with an upgraded front seven on the defensive side of the ball with the signings of Chris Canty, Elvis Dumervil and Marcus Spears among others which should put Webb in a much better situation on passing downs.
