Bears Signing CB B.W. Webb

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Bears are signing CB B.W. Webb to a contract.

Before agreeing to a contract with the Bears, Webb visited with the Browns and Bills.

Webb, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2013. He lasted just over a year in Dallas before he was waived and later claimed by the Steelers. Unfortunately, Webb’s stay in Pittsburgh was short-lived, as they cut him loose just a few days later.

The Titans signed him to their practice squad at the start of the 2015 season and later promoted him to their active roster. However, he was cut loose as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

Webb signed on with the Saints a few weeks into the regular season and finished out the year in New Orleans.

In 2016, Webb appeared in 14 games and recorded 28 tackles, no sacks, one interception and 11 pass defenses for the Saints. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 76 cornerback out of 111 qualifying players.
