Davis Webb: Secures pact with Giants

Webb signed a reserve/future deal with the Giants on Monday.

Analysis: Webb was the Giants' third-round pick in 2017, but he only spent one season with the team and never touched the field as a backup to Eli Manning. The 24-year-old will compete for the backup job in Buffalo in 2020. Whether Matt Barkley -- the current backup to Josh Allen -- is still around remains to be seen, as Barkley will be an unrestricted free agent in March.

Davis Webb: Added to Buffalo's practice squad

Davis was signed to the practice squad Monday, the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: Davis was a third-round pick out of Cal by the Giants in 2017, but he's never seen an NFL snap. It says a lot about the team's lack of conviction in undrafted free agent Tyree Jackson -- who was with the team all summer -- that it would recruit Davis for the practice squad instead. Linebacker Nate Hall and wide receiver Tyron Johnson were also added to the Bills' practice squad.

Davis Webb: Leaves quality spring impression

Webb may have finished OTAs ahead of Trevor Siemian on the Jets' depth chart at quarterback, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Webb worked as the second quarterback for the final set of OTAs after a strong spring performance and could earn the backup job with continued strong play in training camp. The 2017 third-round pick has yet to make his NFL debut and spent most of the 2018 season on the practice squad, so if he earned the No. 2 job the team could end up holding onto all three quarterbacks. Siemian is unlikely to be cut due to his significant starting experience and since $1 million of his salary is guaranteed.

Davis Webb: Signs tender with Jets

Webb signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Jets on Thursday.

Analysis: Webb spent much of the 2018 season on the Jets's practice squad. He currently appears in line to be the team's third option at quarterback in 2019 behind Sam Darnold and Trevor Siemian, but a quality camp could promote him to the top backup position.

Davis Webb: Tendered by Jets

Webb, an exclusive-rights free agent, has been tendered by the Jets, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: With Josh McCown set to become an unrestricted free agent, it appears Webb will enter the offseason as the tentative backup to Sam Darnold. It's possible that could change depending on what the Jets do in the draft and free agency.

Davis Webb: Brought up from practice squad

Webb has been elevated to the 53-man roster,Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: With Sam Darnold (foot) doubtful to suit up Sunday, the Jets seem prepared to go with a depth chart that features Josh McCown as the starter and Webb as the No. 2 QB against the Bills.

Davis Webb: Same city, new team

Webb signed with the Jets' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: It was a surprise when the Giants cut Webb after they picked him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He was an solid collegiate talent, completing 62 percent of his passes for 4,295 yards, 37 touchdowns and 12 interceptions his senior season at California. The Jets may look to develop Webb into Sam Darnold's future backup.

Davis Webb: Waived by Giants

Webb was waived by the Giants on Sunday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Webb was a third-round draft pick just one year ago, but he wasn't taken by the current regime in New York. The Giants will open the season with Alex Tanney and fourth-round rookie Kyle Lauletta behind Eli Manning.

Davis Webb: Seems to have No. 2 job

Webb appears to have beaten out Kyle Lauletta for the No. 2 quarterback job, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Webb was held out of Thursday's preseason finale against New England, allowing Lauletta to make the start and get all the playing time in the first half. The rookie fourth-round pick failed to make one last push for the No. 2 job, completing just eight of 19 passes for 118 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

Davis Webb: Solid showing

Webb played the entire first half Friday night against the Lions, and completed 14-of-20 attempts for 140 yards and a touchdown.

Analysis: It was a strong showing in his battle to supplant rookie Kyle Lauletta, though Lauletta, a product of the current management regime, might still be the favorite for the role.
