49ers Audition J’Marcus Webb

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. "<strong

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.

    This was always funny when the 49ers were relevant both teams signing each other’s cast offs. Now it’s who cares. Hopefully the 49ers can get back to being relevant those games were fun to watch.

    Maybe players aren’t playing because they really don’t care about this tea. If the owners don’t care, why should they? No use risking getting hurt for nothing. Besides why would this pathetic team want to win a game and lose the 2nd pick. Draft players are a lot cheaper than free agents or pro bowlers.
