Joe Webb confirmed the Panthers are using him as a quarterback.
Webb spent last season as a seldom-used wide receiver for the Vikings, catching five passes for 33 yards. Now in Carolina, he's sharing spring reps with Derek Anderson as Cam Newton rehabs from ankle surgery. They could end up battling for one roster spot at training camp. May 5 - 10:40 AM

Panthers signed QB/WR Joe Webb, formerly of the Vikings.

Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Panthers are signing Webb as a quarterback. Webb converted to receiver full-time last season and hasn't attempted a pass since 2012, but will get an extended look replacing Cam Newton (ankle) during OTAs. Carolina has just Derek Anderson and Matt Blanchard behind Newton.

The Vikings aren't expected to re-sign free agent QB/WR Joe Webb.

Minnesota has put a lot of time and effort into Webb only to see it turn into six career catches for 42 yards and a 1-1 record, including a playoff loss, as a starting quarterback. The 2010 sixth-rounder is an athletic freak but needs plenty more seasoning. Webb's market likely won't be very hot this spring.

Vikings WR Joe Webb has been officially diagnosed with a concussion.

The former quarterback has played just 139 snaps this season, making five catches. The 2010 sixth-round pick will be a free agent this offseason.

Joe Webb was forced from Sunday's game against the Packers and is being evaluated for a possible concussion.

We noticed Webb in on just one play in the first quarter. He has just five catches for 33 yards through ten games this season.

Joe Webb is being evaluated solely as a receiver in Vikings camp.

Coach Leslie Frazier hinted strongly that Webb's past quarterbacking won't be a consideration at cut-down time. That's a problem for Webb, as the Vikes' top four receivers are already set, and they may only keep five. Webb proved once and for all that he's not an NFL quarterback with his cringe-worthy performance in Minnesota's Wild Card loss.

Joe Webb was spotted fielding some punts on Wednesday.

Webb is no longer an option at quarterback, but the Vikings don't want to give up on a player of his athletic ability. They're trying to get him up to speed at wide receiver as well as chipping in on special teams and being a gadget guy.

The Vikings are working to find creative ways to use converted WR Joe Webb.

Coach Leslie Frazier spoke about using Webb in multiple looks, saying "we do have ideas about some things we want to do with him beyond just lining him up at the X or the Z position." Frazier concedes that Webb has a long way to go in terms of running routes, a skill not easily mastered. We expect Webb to have a difficult time developing into a serviceable weapon for the team.

Joe Webb is reportedly "catching everything" at OTAs.

Webb's transition from quarterback to wideout has started off smoothly, at least from a hands perspective. He's battling with the likes of Stephen Burton and Chris Summers for the No. 5 receiver spot. At 6'4/220 with 4.44 wheels, Webb certainly has a leg up in raw talent.

The Vikings have moved Joe Webb to wide receiver.

"We had been talking about it for a while, and we made the decision that this was the way to go after we had our draft," coach Leslie Frazier said. Webb hasn't lined up at receiver since rookie minicamp in 2010, but he's been catching passes on the side for a few weeks now. Webb posted forty times of 4.44 and 4.45, an 11-foot-5 broad jump, and 42.5" vertical at UAB's Pro Day three years ago. He also has 10 3/4-inch hands to go with his 6-foot-4, 220-pound frame. Webb has a chance to be the No. 4 or 5 receiver if the transition goes smoothly.

Joe Webb has been catching passes in preparation for a switch to receiver.

The Vikings haven't notified Webb of a position switch, but it's looking likely that he'll be asked to make the transition back to receiver in 2013. "I'm doing a lot more work at it so I can work on my craft at receiver since I haven't been there since, what, 2010 when I first got drafted?," asked Webb rhetorically. "I'm comfortable. Whatever they ask me to do, I'm going to do it." Webb has one year left on his contract, and his best chance to make the team will be at receiver.
Wed, May 1, 2013 10:44:00 PM

Coach Leslie Frazier softened his stance and said the Vikings will "continue to discuss" a position change for QB Joe Webb.

"[Webb] is such a talented athlete that we want to make sure that we’re doing the right thing by him and our team," Frazier said. "That’s something we’ll continue to discuss as we go forward." Frazier previously said the Vikings didn't plan to move Webb from quarterback, but they appear more open to doing so. Minnesota intended to use Webb as a receiver when it selected him in the 2010 draft.

Coach Leslie Frazier said he doesn't intend to change QB Joe Webb's position.

Frazier claims he intends to take four quarterbacks to training camp. However, Webb does not appear to be a fit -- even as the No. 3 behind Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel. Webb proved to be incapable of running a standard offense when forced into action during January's Wild Card playoff loss to the Packers.
Wed, Mar 20, 2013 11:04:00 AM

Beat writer Tom Pelissero says there's a "good chance" the Vikings move on from Joe Webb this offseason.

Webb's style doesn't mesh with starter Christian Ponder. When Webb was forced to start January's Wild Card playoff game against the Packers, the entire offense crumbled at his fingertips. He's simply incapable of running a traditional scheme. Pelissero expects the Vikings to reach out to free agent backups such as Tyler Thigpen, Matt Moore or Bruce Gradkowski next week.
Wed, Mar 6, 2013 10:27:00 AM

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says backup QB Joe Webb will face competition in 2013.

Frazier also reiterated the Vikings have no plans to sign or draft a quarterback to push Christian Ponder. The Vikings' backup quarterback the past three seasons, Webb was out of his depth after being put on the spot in the Wild Card round. Webb's athleticism is intriguing in a league that's becoming obsessed with the read option, but it's not guaranteed he'll hold onto No. 2 duties in Minnesota.
