Minnesota Vikings claim J’Marcus Webb off waivers from Chicago Bears


The last few year’s in Chicago couldn’t have been worse for offensive lineman J’Marcus Webb.

After signing a four year deal with the team in 2010, Webb struggled mightily and became known more for being yelled at by quarterback Jay Cutler than for performing up to his expectations.

The Chicago Bears continued to preach patience with Webb and did everything they could to keep him on the roster, citing his potential, but it finally came to an end when Webb was cut by the Bears.

Hoping to scoop up some of that promise, divisional foe, the Minnesota Vikings decided to take a gamble on the offensive tackle, picking him up off waivers from the Bears today.

Per Brad Biggs:

Webb is by no stretch guaranteed a roster spot on the Vikings, but if he does get one, he’ll likely have an unpleasant reunion at Solider Field as the Vikings hit the Windy City in Week 2.
