Ravens cut Webb, sign OL Hurst to $17.5 million deal

Woodhead's release saves the team $1.8 million. "James is a reliable, tough and versatile player who has played a lot of football for us".

Alex Collins emerged as a quality back for the Ravens last season, and with Woodhead out of the fold, Collins is now set to carry the load in 2018 with support from Javorius Allen and Kenneth Dixon. He would have become an unrestricted free agent without the new deal. Hurst could stay at left guard, where he developed into a solid starter this year, with Lewis sliding out to right tackle, or Hurst could move to right tackle. Baltimore had $6.1 million in cap space before parting ways with Woodhead and Howard, according to ESPN.

In the last two seasons he has played all 16 games Woodhead had 76 (2013) and 81 receptions (2015), with six receiving touchdowns in each, and he averaged over four catches per game a year ago. He finished the season with 39 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions, which he recorded in the first two games of the season. That's when he aggravated a hamstring injury and was eventually placed on injured reserve.

Like Woodhead, Howard is gone after one season with Baltimore.

Injuries limited the veteran running back in 2017-18, allowing him to appear in only eight regular-season games and total 14 carries for 56 yards, adding 33 receptions for 200 yards. He first debuted with the team in 2009-10, appearing in 10 regular-season games as a rookie.

Also Monday, the Ravens released veteran safety Lardarius Webb, who has spent all nine of his National Football League season with Baltimore.

Webb transitioned from cornerback to safety in 2016.

An Alabama native, Webb has been active in the Baltimore community throughout his career, including a popular charity softball game held each summer.
