INDIANAPOLISThe Colts are still signing some of their own free agents.

 

On Friday morning, the team re-signed veteran offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb.

 

Bringing Webb backs solidifies a depth piece for the Colts, as he will compete for a roster spot during the preseason.

 

Webb, 30, actually started the 2018 season opener, despite joining the Colts at the start of last year’s Training Camp.

 

With the constant right tackle revolving the Colts had last summer, it was Webb who actually won the job initially, with injuries to Anthony Castonzo and Denzelle Good impacting the dominoes at tackles.

 

Unfortunately, Webb’s 2018 season ended on the second to last play of the season opener.

 

On a Jack Doyle fumble, which ended the Colts’ chances to beat the Bengals, Webb injured his hamstring chasing down the returned fumble.

 

It was a brutal way for his season to end.

 

At 6-7 and 331 pounds, Webb is probably the No. 3 or 4 tackle currently on the depth chart, depending on how you view Le’Raven Clark/Joe Haeg, with Anthony Castonzo and Braden Smith returning.

 

Drafting a tackle later this month, and that selection occurring before the last couple of rounds, should definitely be on the priority list for the Colts. If that happens, Webb will be in the thick of fighting for a roster spot in 2019.

 

Webb has 65 career starts in 81 games played. He’s played for the Colts (2018), Seahawks (2016), Raiders (2015), Chiefs (2014), Vikings (2013-14) and Bears (2010-12). He was a 2010 seventh-round draft pick of the Bears, when Chris Ballard was on staff in Chicago.

 

The Colts now have re-signed 6 of their 15 unrestricted free agents this offseason.
