The Vikings had to shuffle up their practice squad after a member of the team was poached by the Carolina Panthers on Wednesday, November 13th.
Rookie offensive lineman Travis Bond got signed to the Panthers 53-man roster today. Bond was a 7th round draft pick in this years draft (taken 214th overall), and was being groomed to be the team’s swing tackle prior to the Vikings signing of J’Marcus Webb from the Chicago Bears.
To take his place on the practice squad, Minnesota has signed another Webb. This time, it is offensive tackle Jamaal Johnson-Webb. Webb is sadly best known for his performance at the NFL combine where he tied for fewest amount of reps on the 225 pound bench press.
This is Johnson-Webb’s third team this year. He was initially part of the Arizona Cardinals organization after going undrafted and the Chicago Bears prior to his signing with the Vikings. Johnson is 6’6″ tall and weighs in at 306 pounds. He played his college football at Alabama A&M.
