Bills signed QB Joe Webb, formerly of the Panthers.

Webb is more of an asset on special teams, but he is good depth with both Tyrod Taylor and T.J. Yates recovering from concussions. He also has ties to both coach Sean McDermott and GM Brandon Beane from their time together in Carolina. S Colt Anderson was cut in a corresponding move.

Free agent QB/ST Joe Webb worked out for the Bills on Sunday.

Webb is familiar with coach Sean McDermott and GM Brandon Beane from their time together in Carolina. The Bills could use another quarterback with starter Tyrod Taylor still in the concussion protocol. The 30-year-old hasn't thrown a pass in an NFL game since 2012.

Panthers released QB/ST Joe Webb.

There are rarely big surprises on cut-down day, but this one at least raises an eye brow. Webb was never going to contribute as a quarterback, but he has been an important asset on special teams the last two seasons. Carolina also cut Garrett Gilbert, leaving them with just two quarterbacks. That is as sure a sign as any they are comfortable with Cam Newton's health.

Panthers re-signed QB Joe Webb to a two-year contract.

Webb is the Panthers' No. 3 quarterback, but also a reserve receiver and core special teamer. His 53-man roster spot should be assured for 2016.
Tue, Mar 8, 2016 03:10:00 PM

Panthers QB Joe Webb may be utilized more at wide receiver.

Webb is fully expected to stick on the final roster, but the Panthers may use his versatility to keep fewer wide receivers. Carolina has already cut Brenton Bersin and Mike Brown, making it possible they only keep five receivers on the final roster. In that scenario, Webb would likely see time at receiver in addition to the snaps he gets on special teams. The Panthers will also scour the wire for help following final cuts.

Panthers re-signed QB/WR Joe Webb to a one-year, $825,000 contract.

Carolina's No. 3 quarterback and a backup receiver, Webb played 28 snaps on offense last season. He'll primarily contribute on special teams if he can keep his spot on the 53-man roster.
Mon, Mar 9, 2015 02:48:00 PM

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he plans to keep Joe Webb as the team's No. 3 quarterback.

The Panthers only kept two quarterbacks last year, but can't afford to cut Webb with Cam Newton (ribs) injured. Webb has completed 21-of-35 passes for 271 yards with two touchdowns and one interception through three preseason games, adding 30 yards on four carries. Derek Anderson will open the season as Newton's backup. Webb's roster spot won't be guaranteed once Cam heals.

Joe Webb is not expected to make the Panthers' 53-man roster.

Webb played the entire second half of Carolina's preseason opener, completing 16-of-28 passes for 180 yards and a touchdown. He was also a factor in the running game, adding 30 yards on four carries. Derek Anderson is locked in as Cam Newton's backup, and the Panthers are likely to keep only two quarterbacks. Webb is auditioning for a role with other teams.

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.

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.
Mon, Nov 25, 2013 01:50:00 PM

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.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 01:38:00 PM

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.
