The Bears added another cornerback to the mix on Wednesday signing former fourth round pick B.W. Webb to a one-year deal.
Webb, drafted by the Cowboys in 2013, will be on his fifth team in five years. The William and Mary product has appeared in 49 games with 10 starts in four seasons, Cowboys (2013), Steelers (2014), Titans (2015) and Saints (2016). In those games, he has recorded 61 tackles, two interceptions, and 14 pass breakups .
Webb’s best season came last year with the Saints, registering 27 tackles, 11 pass breakups, and one interception in a career high eight starts.
This is a minor move by the Bears. With already added cornerbacks in Marcus Cooper, Prince Amukamara, and re-signing Jonathan Banks and Bryce Callahan, Webb has a very little chance of making the final roster. This move gives the Bears more guys heading into the offseason program, creating more competition.
