Bills' Davis Webb: Staying in Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb signed a reserve/future contract with the Bills on Tuesday.

Webb shuffled between active roster and practice squad all season but never took a regular-season snap. It's the second-straight season that Webb has signed a reserve/future contract with the Bills. Veteran Matt Barkley is heading into free agency, potentially leaving Josh Allen and Jake Fromm as the only other quarterbacks on the roster.

Davis Webb: Shifts back to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb reverted to the Bills' practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Webb was elevated to the active roster for Monday's win over the Patriots, but he was a healthy scratch. The 2017 third-round pick has yet to make his NFL debut.

Bills' Davis Webb: Elevated from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb was promoted to Buffalo's active roster from the practice squad Monday.

The 25-year-old is a gameday elevation for quarterback depth but remains a healthy scratch for Monday's contest. Webb will revert back to the Bills' practice squad later this week.

Davis Webb: Waived by Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb was waived by the Bills on Saturday, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.

It seems likely Webb will wind up on the Bills' practice squad in the near future, although it's a frustrating conclusion to an offseason in which the 2017 third-round pick hoped to compete for the backup job. Matt Barkley and Jake Fromm both made it onto the 53-man roster, so even were starter Josh Allen to go down with an injury, don't expect Webb to make a significant jump up the depth chart.

Bills' Davis Webb: Secures pact with Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Webb: Added to Buffalo's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Davis Webb: Leaves impression during spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Davis Webb: Signs tender with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Jets on Thursday.

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.

Jets' Davis Webb: Tendered by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Davis Webb: Brought up from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets signed Webb off their practice squad Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

With Sam Darnold (foot) doubtful to play Sunday against the Bills, Webb is expected to step in as the backup to Josh McCown, who will make his first start of the 2018 season. Assuming Darnold is good to go after the Jets' Week 11 bye, it's possible that Webb will lose his spot on the 53-man roster.

Davis Webb: Same city, new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Davis Webb: Waived by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb was waived by the Giants on Sunday, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Webb was a third-round draft pick just one year ago, but he wasn't taken by the current regime in New York. The Giants will open the season with Alex Tanney and fourth-round rookie Kyle Lauletta behind Eli Manning.

Giants' Davis Webb: Seems to have No. 2 job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb appears to have beaten out Kyle Lauletta for the Giants' No. 2 quarterback job, Jordan Raanan of 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.

Giants' Davis Webb: Solid showing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb played the entire first half Friday night against the Lions and completed 14 of 20 attempts for 140 yards and a touchdown.

It was a strong showing in his battle to supplant rookie Kyle Lauletta, though Lauletta, a product of the current management regime, might still be the favorite for the role.

Giants' Davis Webb: Gets competition in draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb may face competition from rookie fourth-round pick Kyle Lauletta for the No. 2 quarterback role, Paul Schwartz of The New York Post reports.

With Eli Manning in the twilight of his career, the Giants presumably will carry three quarterbacks, hoping that either Webb or Lauletta eventually proves to be their signal-caller of the future. A third-round pick last year, Webb completed 18 of 34 passes for 190 yards during the preseason and didn't take any snaps in the regular season. He was drafted by Jerry Reese and Ben McAdoo, whereas Lauletta was picked by the new regime, led by general manger Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur.

Giants' Davis Webb: May push draft decision down to wire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb will have a chance to impress new head coach Pat Shurmur in the buildup to the NFL Draft, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports. "The advantage we will have is we'll have two weeks of training where we can't go on the field, it's just in the meeting room, and we're gonna get that extra minicamp, which will be right up to the draft, so it will be a great way for Davis to sorta showcase what he can do," Shurmur said Tuesday.

Because the Giants made a coaching change this offseason, they can kick off workouts earlier than organizations that did not. Webb's opportunity will begin April 9, but the true test will seemingly happen April 24-26, when the team embarks on a voluntary minicamp. The latter date coincides with the first day of the draft, so his performance could sway the decision-making process of the Giants' brass once it's on the clock at No. 2 overall. With a QB-heavy class on tap, Shurmur and company are inclined to select the potential successor to long-time signal caller Eli Manning. That being said, Webb has a shot to upend those plans with an notable April.

Giants' Davis Webb: Never saw action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb, last year's third-round pick, didn't throw a single pass during his rookie season.

Geno Smith got one start when Ben McAdoo benched Eli Manning, but Manning got his job back, and the Giants never turned to Webb. Webb should be in the mix for a backup spot in 2018, but it's hard to see him competing for the starting job with no experience.

Giants' Davis Webb: Will back up Manning on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo said Wednesday that Webb will serve as starting quarterback Eli Manning's backup Sunday versus the Redskins, replacing Geno Smith, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports. However, Spagnuolo noted "there's no guarantees" Webb will make an appearance, per Schwartz.

Earlier Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network leaked this news, only to have it confirmed by Spagnuolo during media availability. The development has been in the works for a few weeks at this point, as Webb has increased his practice reps with the first-team offense slowly but surely. Despite his elevation in the pecking order, Webb's lack of guaranteed reps in Week 17 is probably enough to keep him off the fantasy radar, even in active season-long formats that start two quarterbacks.

Giants' Davis Webb: In line for backup duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb is expected to be the Giants' backup quarterback Sunday versus the Redskins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Webb has increased his reps with the first-team offense the past few weeks, seemingly in preparation for an appearance before the conclusion of his rookie campaign. Even so, he didn't serve as the backup when Eli Manning vacated his starting spot to Geno Smith in Week 13. With active status likely this weekend, there's a good chance Webb takes the field for the first time as a professional, especially with the Giants one loss away from locking up the No. 2 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Giants' Davis Webb: Practicing with first-team offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Webb has been taking some snaps with the Giants' first-team offense during practice this week, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports. "We're amping [Webb] up a little bit," interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo said. "He's always preparing like he's going to be a two or maybe even play in the games. So the preparation is the same, but we just wanted to make sure we got him some reps on the field."

Spagnuolo indicated there won't be a changing of the guard at quarterback this week, as Eli Manning is set to make his third consecutive start Sunday against the Cardinals. However, the fact that Webb received reps with the first team for the first time since the summer suggests that the rookie could unseat Geno Smith for backup duties in Week 16. If Webb impresses the coaching staff during subsequent practices, he might receive the opportunity to play a few series in the season finale against the Redskins, if not start over Manning outright.
