At least one high-profile player told The Baltimore Sun that it was the biggest shock of his career.
When it comes to salary cap dumps and roster restructuring, Thomas and Webb are usually right; no one is safe. But under many circumstances, it becomes difficult to execute a fire sale even under the current salary cap.
Ngata, of course, was different and will likely re-work a deal in Detroit.
Webb's situation is more interesting. The 29-year-old will count more than $10 million against Baltimore's cap next year and, according to the Sun, is waiting to hear back from the Ravens about restructuring the deal.
He said he hopes to return, unlike Ngata.
