Bills free agent Joe Webb signs with Texans

The Houston Texans signed Bills free agent quarterback Joe Webb to a one-year contract Thursday.

The deal is valued at $1.015 million, according to the NFL Network.

The Texans' new general manager is Brian Gaine, who was a key member of the Bills' front office last season.

Webb, 31, provides another alternative to back up Deshaun Watson. The Texans also have Brandon Weeden and Taylor Heinicke. Webb also can play wide receiver and help on special teams.

Webb will most likely be remembered among Bills fans for his role in leading the team to a victory against the Indianapolis Colts in the Snow Game. Webb came in during the third quarter after Nathan Peterman took a shot to the head. Webb was 2-for-6 for 35 yards with an interception and ran five times for 27 yards. His key completion was a 34-yarder to Deonte Thompson with less than two minutes remaining in overtime.

Webb had not completed a pass in a regular season game since the 2011 season before he played against the Colts.
