Things didn’t work out between J’Marcus Webb and the Seahawks. Could the offensive tackle try and redeem himself with an NFC West rival? The 49ers worked out Webb on Monday, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Webb joined the Seahawks this past offseason on a two-year, $6.25MM ($2.5MM guaranteed) deal. The former seventh-round pick was expected to compete for a starting gig, and the 28-year-old did end up starting three games for Seattle. However, the veteran’s role diminished over time and he was released in November.
In his 223 snaps for Seattle, Webb was given a dreadful 38.2 overall grade from Pro Football Focus. Still, Webb offers plenty of starting experience, as the veteran has had three seasons with 16 starts. In six-plus seasons, Webb has played 80 games between the Seahawks, Raiders, Vikings, and Bears. He also has some experience playing on the interior line.
The 49ers could use some O-Line help considering that left tackle Joe Staley (hamstring) has missed the past couple of games, center Daniel Kilgore was placed on IR, and Kilgore’s replacement Marcus Martin suffered an ankle injury on Sunday.
