Texans Add Versatile Webb

Jack Of All Trades Joins Texans

HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) – The Texans have announced the signing of quarterback Joe Webb.

To call Webb just a quarterback is a bit of an injustice though.  While Webb has seen action at the quarterback spot as recently as last year with Buffalo, Webb also has dabbled at wide receiver and has played a lot on special teams.

The eight-year veteran also has experience returning kicks, as he has done it 18 times with a 22.3 yards per return average. 

Webb, 31, threw only seven passes while completing two of them with Buffalo last year.  He joins Brandon Weeden as recent free agent quarterback signings that will back up Deshaun Watson.

While Webb is a jack-of-all-trades, master of none type, he provides the Texans with depth at quarterback, wide receiver, kick returner and could be a factor on the special team units as well.

Webb spent his first four years in Minnesota after being drafted in the sixth round at UAB.  Webb started in four games in four years, two of them at quarterback.  Carolina would sign Webb in a versatile role and spent three years with the Panthers.  Webb would then sign with Buffalo before the 2017 season.
