Davis Webb started his NFL career with the Giants, and he may be ready to end his playing career with the Giants. The 28-year-old New York backup quarterback has expressed an interest in starting his coaching career and could move from player to assistant this offseason if the right opportunity presents itself. according to ESPN.
The former Texas Tech and California quarterback was selected by the Giants in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Webb didn’t play for a while during his rookie season, was waived by the Giants before his second season and signed with the New York Jets. After being cut before the start of the 2019 season, the Buffalo Bills signed Webb to their practice squad, and he remained with the organization for the next three seasons. Webb got his first regular season action in the NFL in 2021.
At the end of last season, Webb was reportedly offered the position of quarterbacks coach for the Bills and given the opportunity to follow in Kellen Moore’s footsteps by going straight from backup quarterback to assistant coach with the same franchise. . However, Webb chose to spend another season as a player, and it was a decision he wouldn’t regret as Webb received his first career start in Week 18 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He completed 23 of 40 passes for 168 yards and a touchdown, and also rushed for another touchdown in the 22-16 loss.
Webb closing the book on his playing career after making his first NFL start would be pretty poetic.
