Vikings Will Switch Joe Webb To Wide Receiver


The Vikings have a new backup quarterback in Matt Cassel and now Joe Webb has a new position.  Around The league is reporting that Webb will moved to wide receiver.

“(Webb) is such a talented athlete that we want to make sure that we’re doing the right thing by him and our team, as well,” coach Leslie Fraziertold The Star Tribune. “That’s something we’ll continue to discuss as we go forward.”

Webb played quarterback at the UAB, but he was drafted to play receiver. Webb showed some flashes of potential at times, but it never quite worked out.
