03/08/16 - Joe Webb can be a fifth wide receiver, cover punts and even serve as the emergency quarterback should the Carolina Panthers need him there.
For those reasons and more, the Panthers re-signed Webb to a two-year deal one day before unrestricted free agency invited other suitors.
Webb has been in the NFL for six seasons and was with the Minnesota Vikings for the first four.
Webb was a wide receiver and quarterback at UAB and the Vikings drafted him in the sixth round in 2010 after he posted a 42-inch vertical and 4.43 40 at his pro day at 6-4, 220 pounds. The Vikings tried him at quarterback under head coach Brad Childress but he moved around in 2013, his final season with Minnesota.
The Panthers signed Webb because of his dual-threat skills when quarterback Cam Newton underwent ankle surgery in 2014.
03/09/15 - QB Joe Webb, who was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent March 10, was re-signed by the Panthers to a one-year contract Monday (March 9).
Webb signed with the Panthers last year and played wide receiver and special teams while also serving as the No. 3 quarterback behind Cam Newton and Derek Anderson.
"It's great to be back," Webb said in a statement released by the team. "We had a great run with the way we finished the season and it felt like home. Everyone had great team chemistry and it felt like a big family. I didn't know if I could get that somewhere else. I'm excited to keep working with Cam (Newton) and D.A. (Derek Anderson) with coach (Ken) Dorsey coaching us up."
Webb played in seven games, catching one pass for 16 yards and making one tackle on special teams. He saw action on special teams in both postseason games for Carolina, adding a special teams tackle.
"Joe gives us continuity at the quarterback position," coach Ron Rivera said. "He is also a very versatile player. Not only has he played quarterback, but he has played wide receiver and on special teams, and gives us some depth there because of his athleticism and intelligence. We are very excited for him to continue to be part of what we're trying to build here."
Webb spent his first four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings after they drafted him in the sixth round in 2010.
03/08/15 - QB Joe Webb, unrestricted FA update, became fast friends with Cam Newton and the Panthers like the flexibility he brings. Webb can help out at receiver and on special teams, plus he provides good insurance behind Newton and backup QB Derek Anderson. Would make sense if the Panthers brought him back, but before last season, GM Dave Gettleman wasn't a fan of keeping three quarterbacks.
04/07/14 - QB Joe Webb was signed an an unrestricted free agent by the Panthers from the Vikings March 24.
11/27/13 - --WR Joe Webb (concussion), a key special teams player and No. 5 receiver, suffered a concussion. He also passed the first part of the concussion exam and went through the exertion test on Wednesday. If he's symptom-free on Thursday, he'll be cleared to play.
11/25/13 - --WR Joe Webb (concussion), a key special teams player, suffered a concussion.
10/28/13 - --WR Joe Webb lined up in the shotgun for the first time this season. It's part of the old "Blazer" package the team used some in 2011. Unfortunately for Webb, the play never got run. Right guard Brandon Fusco was flagged for a false start and offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave scrapped the play and never went back to it.
07/30/13 - WR Joe Webb looked awful as a quarterback at the end of last season, but he's looking good so far as a receiver at the start of this season. The 6-4, 220-pound Webb was moved from quarterback, where he flopped massively in relief of an injured Christian Ponder in last season's playoff loss in Green Bay, to receiver, where the Vikings originally plugged him in as a rookie sixth-round draft pick out of UAB in 2010. Webb played some receiver in college and at the Senior Bowl, but is still very raw when it comes to route-running and other nuances of the position. The good news is he has thorough knowledge of the entire offense, has excellent hands and is on a team starving for depth at receiver.
01/09/13 - QB Joe Webb's play was so horrendous that coach Leslie Frazier left the door ajar for a change at backup quarterback. It could be McLeod Bethel-Thompson eventually. He's a first-year player with a strong arm that the team loves, but he didn't play this season.
01/08/13 - QB Joe Webb ran for 68 yards on seven carries (9.7). But after rushing for 17 yards on the third play from scrimmage, Webb ran only six more times in 59 snaps.
