The Buffalo Bills' banged up quarterback room got a little relief via the free-agent market on Monday morning.
Two days after being released by the Carolina Panthers, veteran quarterbackJoe Webb signed with the Bills, the team announced. Webb brings an extra layer of insurance for the Bills as starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor and fellow signal-caller T.J. Yates continue to make their way through concussion protocol.
As the Bills' official website noted, Webb is familiar with both McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane, who both were in Carolina last season. Webb, 30, is likely a temporary backup solution for the Bills at quarterback after he served as the Panthers third-string passer behind Cam Newton and Derek Anderson.
Here are the other roster moves we've been tracking on Monday:
- The Atlanta Falcons terminated the contract of Ra'Shede Hageman, who was placed on the Reserve/Commissioner Exempt List on Saturday. The NFL is looking into a domestic violence-related incident involving Hageman from 2016, a league spokesman confirmed to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.
- The Indianapolis Colts signed free agent tight end Brandon Williams and placed tight end Erik Swoope on injured reserve.
- The Packers locked up a key part of their offensive line for the long-term. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports guard Lane Taylor to a three-year, $16.5 million extension Monday. Taylor one of three offensive linemen (David Bakhtiari, Bryan Bulaga) to start every game last season for Green Bay.
- The New York Jets placed linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin on the injured reserve with a neck injury. Coach Todd Bowles said he hopes Mauldin will be available to play again this season once he's eligible to return Week 8.
