Former UAB standout Joe Webb went to Minnesota a few days after the NFL Draft with hopes of convincing his new employer that he’s capable of making the Vik ings roster as wide receiver.
He may have come home from the mini-camp for rookies with a new goal.
“The coaches liked me (at receiver), liked what I did out there and the athleti cism I showed,” Webb said. “They also put me at quar terback and had me throw the ball. They liked the way I threw the ball and now they want me to play quar terback. Right now, it looks like when I go back, I’ll get a shot at quarterback.”
