J’Marcus Webb says goodbye to Chicago

Quarterback Jordan Palmer isn’t the only player getting a jump on letting the world know that he won’t be on the Bears’ 53-man roster.

When tackle J’Marcus Webb took a pay cut earlier this month, the assumption was that trimming his salary would allow him to keep his job with the Bears for the 2013 season even though rookie Jordan Mills was going to be the starting right tackle.

It appears that assumption was incorrect. Webb took to Twitter on Friday morning to announce that his time with the Bears has come to an end.

Webb started 44 of the 46 games he played for the Bears over the last three years, but was frequently the target of criticism for his play. Quarterback Jay Cutler was one of the critics, as exemplified by a much-noticed sideline dressing down during a loss to the Packers last season. Webb’s experience at both tackle spots should get him looks from teams in search of depth at tackle, although his play makes him a poor choice for much more than that.

    Get off Twitter and learn to listen to snap counts.

    Not a Bears fan so I don’t really care 1 way or another and the guy was pretty bad………but I did like how he always seemed upbeat in his tweets and anytime he spoke to the media, seems like a nice guy, hope he gets a chance somewhere else! Just not on my team 🙂

    Only lovie would be blind enough to keep you as a starter. Good riddance.

    The Packers sure had a lot of fun abusing this turnstile. Thanks for the great memories j’Marcus!

    THANK GOD!! But what took so long
    to get rid of this bum? Now Emery needs to sign Cutler before he lights up every score board in the NFL and Chicago has to pay 125 million dollars to keep him.

    Finally! Go hang out with Lovie and Tice!

    This is clear proof that Emery/Trestman are better than Angelo/Lovie.

    While I was a Lovie Smith fan, Webb is one of the reason Smith and Angelo lost their jobs. The arrogance to believe that they could draft a LT inn the 7th round and do something no other team has done. The reason the Bears’ I-line had stink for years is their belief their coaching was all it took, not actual talent.

    I’m a little bummed about palmer, he came in with little notice and did great. his post game conference was even better. total professional attitude

    Finally, something the old coach should have done long ago. We’re on our way back to the North Title. That’s right McNasty read below

    The only people sad to see him go are any future DE’s for the Bears opponents….he was turrible!

    So is the media going to apologize to Cutler for what they said after he chewed this guy out on national television?

    To date, I’ve seen Romo and Philip Rivers (actually chewed out his coach once) do the same and get less (to no) criticism.

    This guy was horrible!

    “I gave you 3 years of me.”

    No. No. No.

    We were done after 1.

    “I gave you 3 years of me.”

    -J’Marcus Webb

    “We gave you a ton of money for lack-luster, unfocused, unimproved performance.”

    -The Chicago Bears

    Mr Webb, the Dallas Cowboys are on line one.
