Forgotten Buffalo Bills: QB Joe Webb



This week in my “Forgotten Bills” series is QB Joe Webb. Last week was WR Deonte Thompson. Webb spent the 2017 season with the Buffalo Bills, mostly playing as a wildcat QB and special teams player. Let’s take a look at his glorious season spent on the team.

On September 4th, 2017, the Bills signed Webb to a one-year deal. He did not see the field too much on offense; he totaled 54 rushing yards on eight attempts, and 35 passing yards and one INT after completing two of seven passes during the season. After the legend Nate Peterman went down with a concussion in the blizzard game versus the Indianapolis Colts, Webb stepped in as a true QB to finish the third and fourth quarter and OT. The 35 passing yards included a 34-yard pass to Deonte Thompson, which set up a LeSean McCoy game-winning touchdown in overtime.

You may remember that QB Tyrod Taylor was in concussion protocol for that game. Backup QB T.J. Yates also wound up in concussion protocol after Buffalo’s third preseason game.

Webb’s Post-Bills Career

After his Buffalo Bills tenure, Webb spent two years with the Houston Texans from 2018-2019. In 2018, he played all 16 games on special teams, not recording an offensive statistic. In 2019, he found himself on the injured reserve list with a foot injury. He wouldn’t return that season.

On September 23, 2020, Webb was signed to the Detroit Lions practice squad as a WR, but was released on October 20. The New York Giants gave him his last opportunity to play any kind of football. In December of 2020, they signed him to their practice squad. Webb would be called up for two games, recording no offensive stats. He was signed to a reserve/future contract for 2021, but ultimately was released on May 18.

After 11 years with six different teams, Joe Webb finished his career with 888 passing yards, three TDs, six INTs, 326 rushing yards, four rushing TDs, and 10 receptions for 74 yards. He also totaled 18 returns for 401 yards as a kick returner.
