Bills go four deep at quarterback after signing Joe Webb

The Buffalo Bills won't be short on quarterbacks heading into the 2017 season.

The team signed a fourth player at the position Monday, adding Joe Webb to the mix along with Tyrod Taylor, Nathan Peterman and T.J. Yates. To make room for Webb on the roster the team released safety Colt Anderson.

Webb has spent the past three seasons as the third-string quarterback with the Panthers behind Cam Newton and Derek Anderson. A former sixth-round pick of the Vikings in 2010, Webb's first NFL game actually came against the Bills when he replaced an injured Brett Favre on Dec. 5, 2010.

"I like Job Webb. I mean, just my history, Brandon's history with Joe, he plays a lot of different positions, he brings a lot to the table, just starting with the person he is," Bills coach Sean McDermott said. "He's a high-energy guy, positive person, good for our culture, good for our locker room. He plays special teams. He plays quarterback. He plays wide receiver. He plays DB. I mean, I've just been around Joe for a couple years in Carolina there and we know what he brings to the table. When Carolina let him go, we felt like it was a good opportunity for us in a lot of ways."
