Now that he has signed his five-year $50 million contract extension, Baltimore Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb has come out swinging and recently boasted that the Ravens have the best secondary in the league. A story on ProFootballTalk.com details how Webb believes after a year of playing alongside of Cary Williams and the progress of rookie Jimmy Smith, that they are part of the tougest combination of corners out there.

Combining those three with safeties Ed Reed and Bernard Pollard gives Webb the confidence to brag about the team's secondary. While the Ravens pass defense was one of the best (4th in passing yards allowed: 196/game )in the NFL last season, it wasn't the best (Pittsburgh Steelers: 172 yards/game). However, Webb, despite being overlooked for Pro Bowl honors, led the team in interceptions and did not allow a passing TD against him.

In addition, opposing quarterbacks had a QB Rating of less than 50.0 throwing to Webb's side of the field. With another year of experience for Williams, plus a full off-season and Training Camp for Jimmy Smith, the future looks great for the young cornerbacks. With the guys in front of them, including Ray, Sizzle and Ngata, the Ravens defense appears set to remain among the league's elite for years to come.
