Vikings waive OT Webb


The Minnesota Vikings waived offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb on Tuesday, two days after the fifth-year veteran was beat on a blocked field goal in the Vikings’ 16-14 loss at the Detroit Lions.

Webb, a fifth-year veteran out of West Texas A&M, was playing in his first game of the season, and bowled over by Lions defensive tackle Jason Jones on a 26-yard field-goal attempt midway through the first quarter.

“Their inside guys come pretty hard,” Webb said. “It’s definitely the toughest two seconds in football.”

Webb was signed on Nov. 26, returning to Minnesota after appearing in eight games and making one start with the club in 2013. Webb spent the 2014 training camp with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was originally drafted in 2010 by Chicago in the seventh round (218th overall).
