Webb signed a reserve/future deal with the Bills on Monday. Webb was the Giants' third-round pick in 2017, but he only spent one season with the team and never touched the field as a backup to Eli Manning. The 24-year-old will compete for the backup job in Buffalo in 2020. Whether Matt Barkley -- the current backup to Josh Allen -- is still around remains to be seen, as Barkley will be an unrestricted free agent in March.
Davis was signed to the practice squad Monday, the Bills' official site reports. Davis was a third-round pick out of Cal by the Giants in 2017, but he's never logged an NFL snap. It says a lot about the team's lack of conviction in undrafted free agent Tyree Jackson -- who was with the team all summer -- that it would recruit Davis for the practice squad instead. Linebacker Nate Hall and wide receiver Tyron Johnson were also added to the Bills' practice squad.
Webb may have finished OTAs ahead of Trevor Siemian on the Jets' depth chart at quarterback, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports. Webb worked as the second quarterback for the final set of OTAs and could earn the backup job with continued strong play in training camp. The 2017 third-round pick has yet to make his NFL debut and spent most of the 2018 season on the practice squad. Webb's lack of NFL reps could prompt the Jets to carry three quarterbacks into the regular season, as Siemian is unlikely to be cut due to his prior starting experience in the league in addition to his fully guaranteed $1 million salary.
Webb, an exclusive-rights free agent, has been tendered by the Jets, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports. With Josh McCown set to become an unrestricted free agent, it appears Webb will enter the offseason as the tentative backup to Sam Darnold. It's possible that could change depending on what the Jets do in the draft and free agency.
Webb appears to have beaten out Kyle Lauletta for the Giants' No. 2 quarterback job, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Webb was held out of Thursday's preseason finale against New England, allowing Lauletta to make the start and get all the playing time in the first half. The rookie fourth-round pick failed to make one last push for the No. 2 job, completing just eight of 19 passes for 118 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.
