The Ravens cleared some extra cap space on Tuesday by restructuring cornerback Lardarius Webb's contract, according to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

Originally slated to make $8.5 million this season, his number is now down to $6 million this year. He will make up to $18 million over the next three years through incentives in the re-worked deal. This restructure follows an unsuccessful one the Ravens tried to do with now-Lions defensive tackle Haloti Ngata.

Webb was slated to carry a $12 million cap figure due to the five-year $50 million deal he signed after the 2011 season. He already had his contract restructured once, when the Ravens converted $4 million of his base salary a year ago into a signing bonus.

Webb began the 2014 season with a back injury that took some time to ease into. He finished the year with 46 tackles and one interception.
