The Ravens freed up $1.75 million in cap space by releasing Webb, which occurred shortly after the team announced the return of Hurst. He signed a four-year, $17.5 million contract that included $8 million guaranteed.
Webb, 32, was basically a special-teams player after being phased out of the defense toward the end of the season.
Webb thanked the Ravens for a "great run" in a tweet Monday.
Thank you Baltimore it's been a great run. #StillChasinGreatness
