The Ravens' review: 2012 season
To keep you entertained during the 2013 NFL offseason, blogger and reporter Matt Vensel will go back and review the performance of each significant Ravens contributor during the 2012 season. He started with the team's free agents and recent retires and will break down a new Ravens player every weekday.

Season in review: Webb, whom the Ravens rewarded with a five-year, $50 million contract extension last offseason, appeared to be one his way to his first Pro Bowl when he tore his ACL in Week 6, ending his season. It was Webb's second major knee injury -- one to each knee -- in his first four NFL seasons.
Signature moment: In a Week 4 win over Cleveland, Webb made six tackles and broke up three passes.
Stat that stands out: zero -- touchdowns allowed by Webb in 2011 and 2012, per Pro Football Focus.
Pro Football Focus grade: +3.5 overall | +0.4 in coverage | +4.4 as a run defender | -1.0 as a pass rusher.
Outlook for 2013 and beyond: The hope is that Webb will be ready to go in Week 1, but if his knee comes along slowly, he could start the season on the PUP list. Either way, expectations should be curbed for Webb in 2013. Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson has made the expectations unreasonable for players coming off torn ACLs. Webb should eventually get back to top form, but it may take him some time.
