Cowboys waive 2013 fourth-rounder B.W. Webb

Josh Morgan, B.W. Webb AP

The Cowboys waived linebacker DeVonte Holloman this week because his neck injury led doctors to advise against continuing his playing career, but there was no medical reason why they waived another member of their 2013 draft class on Thursday.

The team announced that they have waived fourth-round cornerback B.W. Webb. Webb’s spot on the roster will be taken by running back Phillip Tanner, who the team is likely only re-signing for Thursday night’s preseason game.

Webb had 16 tackles in 15 games for the Cowboys last season, but his most memorable moment in a Cowboys uniform probably came this summer during a joint practice with the Raiders. An on-field scuffle wound up near the fans watching the session and one of them took a swing at Webb with a helmet, causing the cornerback to react with a punch back in the direction of the helmet-wielding fan. Webb faced no discipline as a result of the altercation.

It’s not a great sign that a team as needy on defense as the Cowboys have decided they don’t want Webb, but he’s young enough that he’ll likely draw another look on an active roster or practice squad this season.

    The league should review their practice videos. I’ll bet Jerruh would end up with a bigger fine than the Seahawks did.

    Good. He was nothing but toast for us.

    He was so good during his Senior Bowl week.

    It seems that the Senior Bowl is the new buyer beware center for cornerbacks.

    Kyle Wilson, Michael Coe, DeJuan Tribble, and now this guy.

    I hope his career can flourish elsewhere … like Green Bay or Pittsburgh.

    As soon as this team is flat out of the guys Parcells brought in, they are in for a world of hurt. Think what the Raiders went through during the last 6 years Al was alive. Yeah, that bad.

    Webb is officially a bust. He was given every opportunity but not only was he weak in coverage but he displayed little interest in making a tackle or being physical.

    When the undrafted rookie Tyler Patmon stepped up and had a couple picks against the Dolphins, that sealed Webb’s fate.

    @ Regis — You think the Cowboys are guilty of over-practicing? LOL!!! I should sure hate to see them if they under practice, then!

    He should be happy to leave !

    I liked this guy out of college.. but can’t imagine anyone being cut by Cowboys on defense being any good… puzzling

    Raiders would love to see this guy come in for a “tryout”.
    Bring your helmet.

    didn’t the raidazzzzzz cut a 4th round pick last year? so yeah, maybe dennis allen has it backwards and jerra listens and follows everything dennis allen does.

    Didn’t see this one coming. He was never very good, but he came from a small school and they knew he might take time to develop when they drafted him.

    Cowboys = the most irrelevant team in 20 years.

    It’s possible that Dallas’ defense is cursed. They let DC Rob Ryan go to the Saints and he instantly turned into Dick LeBeau.
