Vikings Agree to Terms With 6th Round QB Joe Webb

Minnesota Vikings sixth-round quarterback Joe Webb has agreed to terms, reports Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but Webb's four-year deal will be worth over $1.88 million dollars.

An incredible athlete, the 6-3, 223-pound Webb played both wide receiver and quarterback at the University of Alabama-Birmingham. During his career, Webb completed 59% of his 792 pass attempts for 5,771 yards, with 37 touchdowns and 25 interceptions, ran for 2,771 yards with 24 touchdowns, and caught 32 passes for 471 yards and four touchdowns.

Webb ran a 4.44-40 at his Pro Day on March 11, and displayed a 42.5” vertical leap and an 11’05” broad jump.

Webb’s size, speed, and athleticism, along with his 10.75” hands and 33.75” arms, had many teams projecting him as a wide receiver in the NFL. That’s what the Vikings had in mind when they used the 199th overall pick on him, but during the team’s final practices of the off-season, Webb was taking reps at quarterback.

Now that Webb's deal is done, every sixth-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft has signed or agreed to terms, something which was not accomplished in 2009, when the Oakland Raiders released Stryker Sulak before signing him to a contract.
