According to The Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson, the Indianapolis Colts tried out veteran offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb on Tuesday:

It came a day after the Colts worked out three other off-the-street offensive tackles.

Regarding Webb, the 6’7”, 330 pound offensive tackle is a familiar face for Indianapolis, as he was a member of the Colts during the 2018 season—making 1 start that year at right tackle.

The former 2010 7th round pick of the Chicago Bears (2010-12) has also been a member of the Minnesota Vikings (2013-14), Oakland Raiders (2015), Seattle Seahawks (2016), and Miami Dolphins (2019) organizations as well.

Webb has appeared in 95 career games (73 starts), and he most recently made 8 starts for the Dolphins during the 2019 season.

The well-traveled 9-year veteran brings a wealth of NFL experience and already has a leg up on head coach Frank Reich’s offensive scheme and playbook, but there might be a legitimate reason he’s been out of football so far this season—now 32 years of age.

Nevertheless, the Colts are in desperate need of some offensive tackle depth, as starting left bookend Anthony Castonzo is expected to be out at least a few more weeks with an injury—while the team recently lost his primary backup Le’Raven Clark to a season-ending torn Achilles.

The team is currently down to 3rd-string offensive tackle Chaz Green protecting the blindside, who’s reportedly a little banged up himself, and with no proven reinforcements behind him.
