“I had not been in one of those situations before, but I definitely had to deal with the consequences. I had to take the time to handle them and man up,” Webb told the Tribune‘s Fred Mitchell of his arrest. In the end, Webb was not prosecuted in the incident.
Webb told the Tribune that he has “taken the time to get sober and to remain sober” and that sobriety has “definitely has helped me on the field and off.” According to the Tribune, Webb indicated personal issues had affected his play.
Webb started all 16 games at left tackle in 2012 for the Bears, but with Chicago signing Jermon Bushrod, Webb (6-7, 333) seems ticketed for another position, perhaps right tackle, in 2013.
That’s business. In the Tribune interview, he shared some of his personal story, and here’s to hoping it’s helpful as he tries to live a healthy life.
