Webb spent much of the 2018 season on the Jets's practice squad. He currently appears in line to be the team's third option at quarterback in 2019 behind Sam Darnold and Trevor Siemian, but a quality camp could promote him to the top backup position.
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 signed with the Jets' practice squad Tuesday.
It was a surprise when the Giants cut Webb after they picked him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He was an solid collegiate talent, completing 62 percent of his passes for 4,295 yards, 37 touchdowns and 12 interceptions his senior season at California. The Jets may look to develop Webb into Sam Darnold's future backup.
Webb appears to have beaten out Kyle Lauletta for the 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.
