Another possibility for Panthers Backup QB

I was pontificating over the future of the Quarterback Position in Carolina, and the now present search for a backup for Cam Newton. Even though the Panthers have found their Franchise Quarterback, the need remains for a quality Backup QB that can provide continuity and success to the offense in case of emergency. While I like having Derek Anderson around for next year, I don't think the Panthers can remain content with DA at backup quarterback forever.

The QB I have in mind is Joe Webb. Webb is a 2nd Year Player out of UAB, currently backing up Christian "Ponderosa" Ponder in Minnesota. Webb has had documented albeit marginal success in the NFL. Webb finished this year with 5 total TD's and 2 Ints. along with 376 passing yards, and 154 yards rushing. Webb stands at 6'4 220 lbs, with a 4.4 forty yard dash and 42.5 inch vertical. Originally brought into the league as a WR, Webb impressed the Vikings coaching staff, and ultimately earned his chance to play QB in the NFL after Brett Favre's injury situation last season. This year, with Christian Ponder banged up and ineffective, the Vikes inserted Webb into the lineup to facilitate a spark on the offensive side, with great result.

Webb provides mobility, a strong arm, athleticism, and that "it" factor that so many quarterbacks lack. If Webb could be had for a 6th Round pick or two, I say Marty should pull the trigger.
