Report: OT J'Marcus Webb suspended four games in 2017

Free agent offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb's no good, very bad 2016 season just got much worse over the weekend. 

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the former Seahawks tackle will be suspended four games in 2017 for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Webb had a rough go of it in 2016 after signing a two-year, $5.75 million contract with the Seahawks, last offseason. He suffered multiple injuries from the start of OTA's to the middle of preseason, which caused him to fall behind in the offensive line battle in which he was fighting at two positions -- right and left tackle.

Eventually, he was left out of the starting unit altogether by the beginning of the preseason. As luck would have it, an injury to rookie Germain Ifedi opened up one more opportunity at right guard for four games, but he struggled and was immediately sent back to the bench when Ifedi returned. 

Eventually, he was made expendable by undrafted rookie George Fant's emergence and was cut to open up a roster spot in late November, despite the significant cap hit -- Webb cost the team $2.2 million in dead cap in 2016 per Spotrac.com. Webb was not able to find work elsewhere in 2016, even after a couple of work outs.

Webb, who also played for the Raiders and Bears over the last three seasons, may have seen the end of his career if this suspension holds.
