Bills sign QB Joe Webb


Buffalo made a move to address their tenuous quarterback situation. With both Tyrod Taylor and T.J. Yates recovering from concussions suffered nine days ago the Bills signed veteran QB Joe Webb.

Webb, 30, is a player very familiar to GM Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott. He's played the last three seasons for the Carolina Panthers serving as the third-string signal caller behind Cam Newton and Derek Anderson.

A former sixth-round pick of the Minnesota Vikings (2010), Webb is an athletic quarterback who has dabbled at other positions including wide receiver and kick returner.

Webb's first NFL game actually came against the Bills on Dec. 5, 2010 when he replaced an injured Brett Favre.

To make room on the roster for Webb the Bills released S Colt Anderson.
