Vikings sign rookie quarterback Webb
The Minnesota Vikings have signed quarterback Joe Webb, their sixth-round draft pick.
Webb's deal was done on Wednesday, making him the third member of Minnesota's eight-player draft class to sign. The Vikings start training camp on Friday.
Webb was named the Conference USA Player of the Year in 2009 after rushing for 1,427 yards for Alabama-Birmingham, becoming the first player in NCAA history to pass for 2,000 yards or more and rush for 1,000 yards or more.
