Joe Webb excited to be working just at quarterback

Joe Webb is back at quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings.

He’s No. 2 on the depth chart for the Vikings and will be the backup for Christian Ponder after he was a quarterback/wide receiver the previous two seasons.

Webb is excited to be in just one position and at quarterback, the position he played in at Alabama-Birmingham. Former coach Brad Childress moved him around and used him as a wide receiver. Coach Leslie Frazier wants to keep him in one place.

," Webb told Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "Any time you can concentrate on one position, that's always a positive.”

Frazier deployed Webb as a wide receiver, too, and had a wildcat package for him that the team called “blazer” based on the nickname of Webb’s school.

"I want to be able to do whatever I can to help the team win," Webb said. "Any chance I can get on the field, I want to help the offense move the chains and score points. But right now, I'm just focusing on quarterback."
