Chiefs brought J’Marcus Webb in for a look

With Eric Fisher and Donald Stephenson in house, the Chiefs don’t need to look outside the organization for a replacement for Branden Albert.

They’ll need some depth, though, and they took a look at a player who might provide it. Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the team had J’Marcus Webb in for a visit recently.

Webb is best known for his three years as a starter with the Bears, a period that’s best summed up by the image of quarterback Jay Cutler sharing a few pieces of his mind during a rough 2012 game against the Packers. There were a lot of rough days for Webb at left tackle in Chicago, leading the team to sign Jermon Bushrod last year and waive Webb before last season.

Webb wound up in Minnesota, where he played in eight games and started once in front of Christian Ponder. The Vikings beat the Redskins 34-27 that day, which meant neither Webb nor Ponder were the targets of any rants.

    It’s nice to see J’Marcus is putting that big body to good use after flopping in Oakland as the 1st overall pick.

    I wouldnt’t really classify Webb as “depth”. That might be giving him too much credit.

    Maybe the packer should sign him he probably be there best defensive player!

    They realize if they sign him they might have to play him right?

    I dont care how badly you need depth on your team, signing players that couldn’t hack it with the Vikings is never a good strategy.

    His DBA: “The Swinging Gate ” Amazing that his tackling offensive career continues. LOL!

    I never knew that JaMarcus changed his last name!

    I bet JaMarcus Russell could play some OL.

    I hope he is tougher than he looks in the picture.

    Yep folks, “just for a look”…

    The Chiefs are a hot mess, 4-10 would be an accomplishment for them.

    are the chiefs trying to get rid of Alex Smith and his contract? signing this clown to block for him is a sure way to to get that done. any timing that offense had will be gone if he is running for his life as soon as he gets the snap. this guy could not block even with the extra help the bears gave him. a new offense and left tackle did wonders for the bears and Cutler last year.
