(AP) – The Panthers have announced they’ve signed free agent quarterback Joe Webb to a one-year contract.

Terms of the deal were not released Friday.

Webb gives the Panthers an extra quarterback during offseason workouts with Cam Newton out four months rehabilitating from ankle surgery.

Webb spent the last four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, seeing action at quarterback and wide receiver. The Panthers said in a press release they plan to use Webb at quarterback.

A former sixth-round draft pick out of Alabama-Birmingham, Webb completed 88 of 152 passes for 853 yards and three touchdowns and five interceptions with Minnesota.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says in a release Webb had a strong workout on Friday and is “a young player who intrigues us and has a similar skill set to Cam.”
