J’Marcus Webb began the preseason as the Bears’ starting right tackle.

Now, he’s vying or a reserve role, as rookie Jordan Mills has moved into his former spot in the lineup.

What’s more. Webb has taken a salary cut, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reported on Sunday.

Instead of making $1.323 million in salary in 2013, Webb’s base salary is now $630,000, Biggs reported.

According to the Tribune, Webb can recapture the lost earnings via incentives tying to his playing time. Of course, whether Webb can get back on to the field with the Bears’ starters remains to be seen — and his roster spot isn’t yet secure, either.
