The Colts have signed offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb, according to a club announcement. To make room, the Colts waived-injured fellow offensive tackle Jared Machorro.
Webb, 29, signed a two-year deal worth $6.25MM with the Seahawks prior to the 2016 campaign, a pact that contained nearly $2.5MM in guarantees. Slated to serve as Seattle’s right tackle, Webb made only three starts — and appeared in just eight total games — before being waived in November of ’16. In that half of a season, he earned a substantially below-average grade of 38.2 from Pro Football Focus. He has not seen the field since then.
Webb’s stop in Seattle wasn’t much to write home about, but he does offer 46 games of NFL experience, including 44 starts. With the Colts, he’ll work to become a reserve behind starting tackles Anthony Castonzo and Austin Howard.
