Davis Webb visiting Seahawks

The 49ers worked out Cal quarterback Davis Webb on Tuesday and he’s sticking around the NFC West on Wednesday.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Webb is visiting with the Seahawks.

With Russell Wilson under contract through the 2019 season and no signs that the Seahawks are looking to make a change, they Seahawks wouldn’t seem to be in the market for a quarterback in the first round. Trevone Boykin’s off-field issues could have them looking for a backup at some point in the draft, however.

There’s also the possibility that the Seahawks are doing their homework on a player who could wind up with a division rival. The 49ers took a look, obviously, and the Cardinals have also been looking at quarterbacks who could replace Carson Palmer at some point, so some background on Webb could come in handy down the road.

    Davis Webb sounds like a golfer’s name.

    I like this kid as a prospect way more than Boykin, but I doubt he’ll still be available in the latter part of the second round. Seahawks will most likely draft CBs with the first two picks but we’ll see.

    I wouldn’t say that just yet. Seattle has been embarrassed in the playoffs these past two seasons and if not for an amazing defensive performance and an epic meltdown by the Packers, it would be 3 seasons.

    The offense was a joke last season with Wilson at the helm. Sounds like the front office is starting to get the hint that Wilson does not put this team over the top unless the defense and run game plays at an elite level, which they haven’t lately. They may be looking the formula that made them successful to begin with, an average QB that they can get for cheap so they can spend the money on defense, a good o-line and a great RB. Makes more sense as to why Seattle brought in every FA RB on the market for a visit. It’s not a coincidence that once Wilson got paid and Lynch and some of the defense players left, the team has been pretty average.

    Scmems07; your on drugs. Wilson is a franchise QB. He won’t be traded or released for at least 10 years. Getting a quality backup QB is the only objective for the team. One that they can pay minimally and get trade value before the second contract is due, would be preferable.

    He was also on one leg and behind a very inexperienced and ineffective O-line.

    Logic much?
