With right tackle Phil Loadholt going on injured reserve with a torn pectoral, the Minnesota Vikings had an opening on the offensive line, and it appears that they're bringing back a familiar face to fill the void.
I'm a Viking! Camera Gyrl, let's ride or die! Everyone else----move out the way!!! Go Vikings! http://t.co/4j4vRVTN0E— J'Marcus Webb (@jmarcuswebb) November 25, 2014
Yes, the Vikings are bringing back offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb. Apparently the team worked out Webb and former Chiefs and Seahawks tackle Eric Winston on Tuesday, and chose to go with Webb.
(Why, which Webb did you think I meant?)
Webb did start a game for the Vikings in 2013, as he filled in for Loadholt during the 34-27 victory at the Metrodome over the Washington Redskins in a game that saw the Vikings have more guys sitting out with injuries than they had room for on their inactive list. He appeared in eight games total for the Vikings last season.
Webb was with the Kansas City Chiefs during training camp this season, but was released before the start of the regular season.
It appears that Mike Harris is still slated to be the starter at right tackle in Loadholt's absence, but there's nothing wrong with bringing in someone like Webb for some depth.
Welcome back to Minnesota, J'Marcus!
