Webb was released by the Giants on Tuesday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Webb never really had a chance to get off the ground with the Giants, suiting up for just two games last season purely as a special teams player. An emergency quarterback/wide receiver like Webb could certainly be viewed as an intriguing depth piece, but the need for that versatility figures to lessen in a more normal 2021 campaign.
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.
Webb signed a contract with the Giants' practice squad Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.
The veteran quarterback logged a stint with the Lions' practice squad earlier this season, as a wide receiver. Webb has not seen game-action since 2018 and will likely serve as emergency depth under center until Daniel Jones (hamstring) returns to full strength.
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.
The Lions signed Webb to the practice squad as a wide receiver on Wednesday.
Webb's versatility allows him to function as both a quarterback and wideout, but it looks as though the Lions are more focused on his pass-catching capabilities. The veteran hasn't appeared in a regular-season contest since 2018, when he had 16 appearances with the Texans.
The Texans placed Webb on injured reserve Saturday due to a foot injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Wilson notes that the team considers Webb's season to be over because of this injury. The 32-year-old suffered the injury Thursday in Houston's preseason finale against the Rams. Webb was expected to slot in as the third-string passer, but now it seems likely that the team will try to bring in another quarterback for depth.
Webb suffered a right foot injury during Thursday's preseason game against the Rams, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
According to the team, Webb's injury is serious, though it's unclear how much time he'll miss. Webb was expected to slot in as the third-string quarterback while also contributing for the Texans on special teams.
Webb completed 14 of 25 passes for 186 yards and one touchdown with one interception in Saturday's preseason Week 2 win over the Lions.
Webb came in after Deshaun Watson played the first series of the game, getting heavy usage for the second straight week. With AJ McCarron sidelined by a thumb injury that could cause him to miss all of preseason, Webb is operating as the Texans' No. 2 quarterback for now.
Webb is returning to Houston on a one-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Webb is an interesting player to have in the fold given his capabilities on both offense and special teams. In addition to serving as a depth quarterback, the 32-year-old also functions as an emergency wide receiver -- which proved useful in 2018 when wideout injuries forced Webb into playing 32 offensive snaps in Week 14 against the Colts. In Houston, Webb is the clear third-string signal-caller behind Deshaun Watson and AJ McCarron.
Webb was pressed into duty as a slot receiver Sunday and caught two of three targets for 13 yards in a 24-21 loss to Indianapolis.
Webb is Houston's third-string quarterback and a full-timer on special teams but was needed when DeAndre Carter left the game with a concussion. Carter was getting reps because Keke Coutee (hamstring) was inactive for a third straight week. Coach Bill O'Brien preferred using the versatile Webb, who has played receiver in the NFL and had eight career receptions prior to Sunday, over an established wideout like Sammie Coates, who has limited experience in the slot. If health issues linger into Week 15 against the Jets, the Texans could make Vyncint Smith active next week, and they have a couple of wide receivers on their practice squad in addition to Coates.
Webb was re-signed by the Texans on Sunday, NFL insider Adam Caplan reports.
Webb was cut by the Texans on Saturday as the reserve quarterback was an original omission from the 53-man roster, but a spot became available and the team elected to bring back the versatile 31-year-old. He'll continue to provide depth behind starter Deshaun Watson with Brandon Weeden still on the roster as well.
Webb led the Texans in rushing and passing during Thursday night's preseason win over the Chiefs. He completed six of 13 passes for 56 yards and rushed four times for 42 yards.
Not surprisingly, Webb was off target on more than half of his throws, but his versatility was on full display. For a quarter-and-a-half, Webb played on various special teams units before being inserted at quarterback midway through the second quarter. He moved the chains a couple of times with his legs and apparently will do anything to make the team. At present, he's third on the depth chart behind Deshaun Watson and Brandon Weeden.
Webb signed with the Texans on Thursday, Jonathan Jones of Sports Illustrated reports.
Webb has thrown only seven passes in an NFL game since 2011, with both completions coming last season with the Bills after he was forced to play quarterback in an overtime game against the Colts that featured heavy snowfall. While Webb is still considered a quarterback, he'll likely be used in different spots on the field when needed given his diverse skill set and athleticism.
Webb (ankle) is active for Sunday's wild-card game against the Jaguars, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Webb dealt with an ankle injury throughout the week, leading to his questionable tag entering Sunday's game. Though he's active, he's unlikely to see any game action unless both Tyrod Taylor and Nathan Peterman were to go down with injury.
Webb (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Webb was a limited participant in practice all week due to an undisclosed ankle injury. However, as the Bills' No. 3 signal caller, his potential absence isn't a pressing concern.
Webb will serve as the backup to Tyrod Taylor (knee) in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Webb was the backup during the Bills' snow-filled overtime win over the Colts a week earlier, though he served as the understudy to Nathan Peterman for that contest after Taylor was ruled out. Peterman exited early with a concussion in the victory, pressing Webb into regular-season action at quarterback for the first time since 2011. Peterman remains in the concussion protocol and won't play this week, but once both he and Taylor are healthy again, Webb will fade back to the No. 3 role.
Webb went 2-for-6 for 35 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 13-7 overtime win over the Colts. He also rushed five times for 27 yards.
Webb was forced into duty after Nathan Peterman, who had drawn the Week 14 start in place of Tyrod Taylor (knee), was forced from the contest with a head injury. The versatile veteran unsurprisingly saw his pass attempts kept to a minimum, as the game was played in a persistent blizzard and the Bills had little trouble making significant gains in the running game throughout the afternoon. With Buffalo's top two signal callers now injured, it remains to be seen if Webb will be called upon to helm the offense in a Week 15 divisional clash against the Dolphins. However, given that Taylor will have another week to recover, it's also quite conceivable that he could be healthy enough to suit up by the time next Sunday rolls around.
