Ravens give first-round, second round tender to Webb, Williams

OWINGS MILLS -- The Baltimore Ravens have assigned a first-round tender and a second-round tender to restricted free agent cornerbacks Lardarius Webb and Cary Williams, respectively.

Webb is due a $2.742 million one-year base salary, and Williams is set to make $1.927 million.

The Ravens also assigned a second-round tender to inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. Running back Matt Lawrence wasn't given a tender.

If Webb or Williams are signed to an offer sheet, the Ravens have the right of first refusal and seven days to decide whether to match.

If they opted not to match in either case, they would receive a first-round draft pick for Webb and a second-round draft pick for Williams.

Webb intercepted five passes during the regular season with three more interceptions during the playoffs. He also registered 68 tackles, one sack, a forced fumble and led the team with 20 pass deflections.

The Ravens have expressed interest in working out a long-term deal for Webb.

Williams emerged as a reliable starter last season and recorded 77 tackles with 18 pass deflections and two forced fumbles.
