49ers signing B.W. Webb after cornerback depth takes a hit

Aug 3, 2021 at 6:27 PM--

According to the player's agent, the San Francisco 49ers are signing cornerback B.W. Webb to a one-year deal. The defender recently worked out for the team.

The 49ers are without several cornerbacks during training camp. Emmanuel Moseley remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list while Tim Harris (groin) and Dontae Johnson (foot) have been sidelined.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked if the team would look into adding some cornerback help.

"Yeah, possibly," Shanahan responded. "I mean, it depends. We were down a number of guys today, which made it tough. Dontae is day-to-day. I think, he's, hopefully, back tomorrow. If not, I think it would be after our day off. Tim's going to be a couple of weeks."

The Dallas Cowboys made Webb (5-11, 188) a fourth-round selection out of William & Mary in 2013. He registered 37 tackles, a tackle for a loss, seven passes defensed, and an interception through 15 games and 12 starts with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2019. Before that, the cornerback spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tennessee Titans, New Orleans Saints, Cleveland Browns, and New York Giants.

Webb, 31, has recorded 164 tackles, four tackles for a loss, a sack, 27 passes defensed, four interceptions, and a forced fumble through his seven NFL seasons. He has appeared in 80 career games, including 35 starts.

Webb did not appear in a regular-season game in 2017 or 2020. He signed with Arizona Cardinals on August 21, 2020, but was released six days later.

49ers-Cowboys: Everyone stepped up after Nick Bosa's injury, says D.J. Jones and Arik Armstead

It was hard to see San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa down on the field late in the first half of Sunday's playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. Everyone, including the fans, knows how much the young defensive end means to the 49ers defense. After the team lost Bosa early last season, the pass rush never really got going. Bosa was ruled out with a head injury and will likely enter the concussion protocol this week, ahead of the 49ers' next playoff game—a Divisional Round matchup against the Green Bay Packers. "We were thinking of him, and I'm happy that he'll be OK, and it's not too serious," defensive lineman Arik Armstead said after Sunday's game. "Obviously, we can't wait to get him back. He's a force for us, and I love playing alongside

There was a quite a contrast in reactions between the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers after the eventful way their Wild Card game came to an end on Sunday evening. With the 49ers up 23-17 in the game's final seconds, the Cowboys were in the process of making one final attempt at a come-from-behind win after trailing 23-7 earlier in the fourth quarter. The Cowboys had the ball at the 49ers' 41-yard line with 14 seconds left to play when they called for a quarterback run by Dak Prescott, which advanced the ball to the 24-yard line. But with no time outs remaining, the Cowboys had to rush to get lined up in order to get off another play. Between the time it took them to get lined up and the time the umpire needed to set the ball, the Cowboys wound up not
