Part of the Ravens’ bumpy ride to a Super Bowl championship last season was the rather large bump that tossed Lardarius Webb from the vehicle, forcing them to play without their best cornerback after he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in October. But Webb reports he is well on his back for the 2013 season.

"I'm going to do all my part,” Webb said, as quoted in The Sun. “I like being in this situation. I'm coming off a little adversity, but it just puts a chip on my shoulder. It's about determination and how bad I want to get back on that field."

He’ll be coming back to a changed defense, one that has lost mainstays such as safety Ed Reed and linebacker Ray Lewis.

"I've been here for four years with Ed, and we don't even really talk football all the time," Webb said. "Everything I could get from him, I've already got it. I looked. I paid attention. I watched him. I watched great leaders like Ray Lewis and Ed Reed. They show you how to do it. I'm going to do all of my part to help this team win."

Webb sounded energized by the prospect of working together with all of the new faces — safety Michael Huff, linebackers Elvis Dumervil and Rolando McClain and defensive linemen Chris Canty and Marcus Spears.

"I'm excited to get with the new guys, some great ballplayers," Webb said.  "We're going to mold together and we'll be a great squad.”

Webb fully expects to be a key part of that great squad.

"I'm taking my time, and I'm working hard," he said. "It's going really well. I've stayed positive throughout this whole process. I'm going to be Lardarius Webb out there.”

Good to know. Because if he were going to be somebody else, the Ravens would need to change the name on his jersey.
