Packers sign TE Webber

Feb. 13, 2014
 

The Packers have signed tight end Raymond Webber to augment a position at which they have two unrestricted free agents.

Webber is a converted college receiver who’s on the small side for an NFL tight end both in height (6-feet-2) and weight (237 pounds). He hasn’t made the 53-man roster of an NFL or CFL team since finishing his college career at Arkansas-Pine Bluff in 2010.

Webber spent the ’11 season on Tampa Bay’s injured reserve after joining the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent. In 2012, he went to training camp with the New York Jets, and last season he went to camp with the CFL Calgary Stampeders, but he was cut both times.

As a senior at Arkansas-Pine Bluff in 2010, Webber led the nation in receptions (101) and receiving yards (1,429). In his four-year career he caught 180 passes for a 13.2-yard average and 16 touchdowns.

According to NFLDraftScout.com, Webber at his college pro day in the spring of ’11 ran the 40 in a range from 4.50 seconds to 4.56 seconds and had a 34-inch vertical jump. According to another report from the spring of ’11, the Packers were one of eight teams that brought him in for pre-draft visit.

The Packers’ top two tight ends from last season, Jermichael Finley and Andrew Quarless, are unrestricted free agents and far from a sure thing to return. Finley is recovering from neck-fusion surgery, and it’s unclear whether the Packers will clear him medically even if he fully heals.

The other tight ends on the roster are Brandon Bostick, Ryan Taylor and Jake Stoneburner.

The compensation of public-sector employees has dominated much of Wisconsin’s political and economic discussion during the past few years.
