The Facts: The Texans have added an alternative to Brandon Weeden or Taylor Heinicke at backup quarterback and a special teams contributor in one package. Agent David Canter announced on Twitter that his client Webb has signed with the Texans.
Diehards Line: Webb made the move from the Panthers to the Bills last season along with Buffalo HC Sean McDermott and GM Brandon Beane. He appeared in every game for the Bills, playing 39 snaps on offense and 278 on special teams over the course of the year. Webb went 2-of-7 on passes and ran the ball eight times in his offensive experiences and also saw snaps as a wide receiver during seven seasons with the Vikings and Panthers. As PFT's Josh Alper notes, the special teams role has kept him in the league across all his stops and figures to be his path to playing time in Houston however the Texans choose to set the depth chart behind Deshaun Watson.
