The Giants signed Webb to a reserve/future contract Friday, Dan Salomone of the team's official site reports. Webb suited up for two games with the Giants in 2020, playing exclusively on special teams while providing emergency depth at quarterback and wide receiver. The versatile veteran will continue to work with the team during the offseason.
The Giants waived Webb on Saturday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. Webb was initially signed to add depth at quarterback following Daniel Jones' hamstring injury. However, he suited up in just two games for the Giants, playing exclusively on special teams and recording one solo tackle. If Webb clears waivers and the Giants make the playoffs, he'll be a practice squad candidate.
The Giants signed Webb to the active roster Saturday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports. Webb joined the Giants' practice squad just last week, and with Daniel Jones (hamstring/ankle) not expected to play against the Browns on Sunday, Webb could now get a chance to handle reserve duties. Webb boasts the versatility to provide emergency depth at both quarterback and wide receiver while also contributing on special teams.
The Giants hosted Webb for a visit Tuesday, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports. With starting quarterback Daniel Jones (hamstring) in danger of missing time, the Giants are predictably looking for options to add depth at the position. Colt McCoy will start if Jones indeed misses time, and practice squad member Clayton Thorson could be promoted to serve as McCoy's backup. Webb may start off on the practice squad if he ends up signing in New York.
The Lions cut Webb from the practice squad Tuesday. The veteran wide receiver hasn't played a game since the 2018 season when he was with Houston. The 33-year-old likely will have to settle for another practice squad role elsewhere, if he can find one.
