When the Seattle Seahawks play their 2018 NFL preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts, they’ll be going up against a side that has several former Seahawks both in the front office and on the roster. On Monday, Indianapolis added to their ex-Seahawks count, announcing the signing of offensive lineman J’Marcus Webb.
You may remember Webb as Seattle’s starting right guard early in 2016, as Germain Ifedi wasn’t healthy enough to begin the season. This was not a good experience, and once Ifedi returned, Webb only saw limited action as an extra offensive lineman. Ten weeks into his two-year, $6.25 million deal, he was waived. Webb did not play for any team last year.
This move is surely a depth signing, as tackles Anthony Castonzo and Austin Howard are both injured, as is guard Jeremy Vujnovich.
Webb to the Colts means he’s also reunited with Mark Glowinski, who was Seattle’s starting left guard when Webb was on the team.
Other one-time Seahawks currently on Indy’s roster include running backs Robert Turbin and Christine Michael, wide receiver Kasen Williams, and defensive back Pierre Desir. Vice president of player personnel Ed Dodds was previously a scout and personnel executive for the Seahawks before joining general manager Chris Ballard’s staff in 2017.
