They say networking is everything and connections played at least a small role in quarterback Joe Webb finding his latest job. Sean McDermott‘s Bills have signed the former Panthers QB, according to a team announcement.
Webb, 30, is technically the Bills’ fourth quarterback after Tyrod Taylor, Nathan Peterman, and T.J. Yates. However, both Taylor and Yates are recovering from concussions, so Webb has been added for depth. In one or both QBs is cleared in time for the season opener, he might get released before he gets a chance to even suit up. If both players are ruled out for the Sept. 10 game against the Jets, Webb could be on the active roster as Peterman’s clipboard holder.
Webb is a versatile athlete who also offers experience at wide receiver. At present the Bills only have five receivers on the 53-man roster: Jordan Matthews, rookie Zay Jones, Brandon Tate, Andre Holmes, and new addition Kaelin Clay.
To make room on the roster, the Bills released safety Colt Anderson.
