Panthers re-sign Joe Webb

The Carolina Panthers have retained third quarterback Joe Webb, who's also played wide receiver, returned kicks and covered kicks, on a one-year contract. “Joe gives us continuity at the quarterback position,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. “He is also a very versatile player. Not only has he played quarterback, but he has played wide receiver and on special teams, and gives us some depth there because of his athleticism and intelligence. We are very excited for him to continue to be part of what we’re trying to build here.” Webb caught a 16-yard pass, returned two kickoffs for 53 yards and had a tackle on special teams. A sixth-round draft pick by the Minnesota Vikings in 2010, Webb played both quarterback and wide receiver for the Vikings. The Alabama-Birmingham product has completed 88 of 152 passes for 853 yards and three touchdowns with five interceptions. He also has 273 rushing yards and seven catches for 58 yards in his career. "It's great to be back," Webb said. "We had a great run the way we finished off the season and it felt like home."
