Seahawks bring J’Marcus Webb in to bolster offensive line

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - AUGUST 22: J'Marcus Webb #76 of the Oakland Raiders looks on during the preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings on August 22, 2014 at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Vikings defeated the Raiders 20-12. (Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images) Getty Images

As the Seahawks look to bolster an offensive line that was bad before defections, they’ve added another body to the mix.

According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, the Seahawks agreed to terms with guard J’Marcus Webb while most of the rest of us were asleep.

Webb has experience at tackle (though it wasn’t all good experience), but he started 16 games at right guard last year for the Raiders, as he bounced back from a year mostly out of the league. He only played one game for the Vikings in 2014.

The Seahawks are looking to fill a hole at guard, after J.R. Sweezy left for a free agent payday in Tampa Bay.

    Be afraid, Russell. Be very afraid.

    This will not fill the hole.

    Good luck with that. This guy was a huge bust for the Bears. He has some huge feet and small talent.

    The Seahawks aren’t exactly adding A-Listers to that OL, are they? Good thing Russell can run.

    Worst OG in football last year I believe and the weak link in the Raiders line. They replaced him with Osemele and will be one of the better lines int he league now.

    It could be worse. It could be JaMarcus Russell.

    That’s the Seahawks way, signing or drafting players while everyone is asleep. Oh, look a shiny thing!

    Good luck to Seattle

    Not just saying it as hes left the Raiders but he was by far the weak link on that line. Granted he was out of football a year and it was his comeback but he was very very very average.

    As a Raiders fan i’m glad hes gone

    Eh im a Seahawks fan and this scares the hell out of me… Webs answer to making holes for the run is falling down in order to get out of the way…. Who knows maybe he will improve in the system but frankly I don’t even see him making it through camp.

    The Hawks better do something about that O line or it is game over for us… I don’t care how great Wilson is you cant win a superbowl without at least a serviceable O line…

    I have faith in the FO but it looks like a lot of our draft picks are going to be for guys up front… Could be a good thing, we’ll have to see I guess.

    Both offensive line signings look terrible. JR Sweezy was no Steve Hutchinson but at least he could run block. I know we have a 2nd year player that will take his spot but LG needs an upgrade because Justin Britt is the worst lineman in football and we don’t have a LT.

  11. metalhead65 says: Mar 15, 2016 9:41 AM

    as a bears fan I tried to over look the fact he was rushed into the lineup as a rookie but he never showed signs of improvement in the following seasons and almost got Cutler killed! played decent as a guard but if they expect improved line play by adding him they are in for a big shock!

  12. dbara43 says: Mar 15, 2016 9:43 AM

    The hole will be filled by Mark Glowinski, last year’s 4th round pick who will make everyone forget about Sweezy by week 3. Webb and that other scrub will be fighting for a utility role that was filled the last 3 years by Alvin Bailey. Hopefully this guy gets nowhere near RW3.

  13. swyrlpr says: Mar 15, 2016 9:49 AM

    This is just a depth signing. I don’t think this guy makes the roster after the pre-season cuts.

  14. Indybear says: Mar 15, 2016 10:04 AM

    The human turnstile? This has to be a training camp signing for competition or maybe an early April Fools joke. They would be better off suiting up a cardboard cut out. Bears fans are snickering across the globe.

  15. RegisHawk says: Mar 15, 2016 10:08 AM

    They turned a d-lineman into a $6.5 million/year Guard. He’s probably just a camp-body, but by all means, the rest of you can over-react because Madden has made you all freaking genii.

  16. mongo3401 says: Mar 15, 2016 10:21 AM

    Sowell and Webb have to be depth signings.

  17. seatownballers says: Mar 15, 2016 10:45 AM

    Let’s see if cable can fix him. If not, he won’t make the roster and he is nothing more then a camp body. Likely competing with Poole anyways

  18. vdogg says: Mar 15, 2016 10:57 AM

    Good thing Wilson can run because if he starts on that line, Wilson may as well be in a track meet. He’s a turnstile.

  19. MasMacho says: Mar 15, 2016 11:03 AM

    Like all Seattle FA signings, this is to add another body that can compete. The hawks will sign 11 more of these guys and probably keep 2 or 3 on the roster. This is how it has worked for several years now. If he can play, he’ll be on the team. If he can’t, he’ll kick rocks. This is how it works. No surprise here.

    Besides, I’d much rather have a team that signs 5 guys to compete for one job than I would bringing in the first high-priced guy I can find and lock him up with guaranteed money before he takes a single snap in camp. Seattle, New England, Green Bay do it the same way, and they win.

    Philadelphia, Dallas, Washington, Miami, Chicago don’t do it that way and they lose.

    subtraction by addition. I’m gonna laugh til I cry if he survives roster cuts

  21. purpleguy says: Mar 15, 2016 11:50 AM

    After watching him play for both my team and the Bears, I suspect the only things Webb will “bolster” are opposing defenses’ statistics.

  22. DrSteveBrule says: Mar 15, 2016 12:31 PM

    Tom Cable is may be the best in business at making chicken salad out of chicken sh__.

  23. will2p0wer says: Mar 15, 2016 12:36 PM

    The Seahawks just brought him in to compete for a roster spot, probably because he was cheap. He isn’t guaranteed a spot. If he does well, then they got a good player at a good price. If not, they cut him and move on. There’s no drawbacks to signing him.

    It could be worse. It could be JaMarcus Russell.

    At least JaMarcus Russell would be a 300 lb turd that gets in the way once in a while just by standing there.
    Webb is completely worthless.

    And people outside of Chicago wondered why Jay Cutler called out Webb during a game.

  25. raiderapologist says: Mar 15, 2016 6:57 PM

    For a tackle, he was a pretty crappy guard in Oakland.

  26. plofus67 says: Mar 15, 2016 8:45 PM

    He’s in the mix if he blows he’s gone,its not like they can’t keep adding guys.

  27. richardfg7 says: Mar 17, 2016 10:44 PM

    The problem is you don’t pay “camp bodies”3 mil a year. This tells us he is in their plans. Also makes him their highest paid o-lineman.
