Giants bringing in Joe Webb for a visit

Daniel Jones may not be able to play this week and the Giants are looking at depth options at quarterback as a result.

Monday brought word that Alex Tanney is coming in for a visit with the team he was with for the last couple of years. Tuesday’s transaction wire brings word that Joe Webb is also visiting with the team.

Webb spent time on the Lions practice squad earlier this year and spent last season on injured reserve. His last regular season action came with the Texans in 2018. Webb did not throw a pass for Houston that season and last threw one for the Bills in 2017. Webb but did see time as a wide receiver — two catches for 13 yards — and made three tackles on special teams.

He’s seen more time in those roles than at quarterback since starting a 2012 playoff game for the Vikings and also returned kicks for the Panthers while Dave Gettleman was their General Manager. The ability to play different spots might be appealing as an addition to a depth chart that has Colt McCoy and practice-squad member Clayton Thorson behind Jones.

  1. Joe Webb was a real warrior everywhere he played. If there’s anything left in the tank, this could be a good move.

  2. Joe Webb is not the usual game manager backup. He loves to aggressively challenge defenses and throw deep. Doesn’t always work out for him, but he is at least entertaining. If I recall correctly, though, he is coming off of an achilles tear which many players never successfully return from. Best of luck to him, the league is better with Joe Webb in it.

  3. Joe was a unique player that could play several positions when he he was in Buffalo don’t under estimate his abilities-he might surprise a lot of people

  4. Wow that’s a long time for a 3rd string backup QB to remain in the league. Gotta give him kudos for his longevity.

  5. I honestly didn’t know Joe was still in the league. He’s carved out a heck of career including an improbable prime time win against the Eagles. Good for him.

    As for Kap, Kap has ZERO interest in playing in the league again. He puts on a front like he wants to but then won’t accept less than top 10 qb money. If he wants in the league, I would guess someone would sign him for team friendly deal like Winston or Newton signed last offseason.
