Panthers sign CB Sam Webb off Raiders’ practice squad

If Jaycee Horn is going to be down for “an extended period of time,” then the Carolina Panthers are going to need some help at the cornerback position. So, they just added some.

As announced by the team on Thursday morning, Sam Webb has been officially signed off the Las Vegas Raiders’ practice squad. He now assumes the 53rd spot on the active roster, which was made vacant by left guard Brady Christensen’s placement on the injured reserve list yesterday.

Webb, an Excelsior Springs, Mo, native, attended Missouri Western State University from 2016 to 2021. He earned All-MIAA Second Team honors for his final season there—amassing 30 tackles, two forced fumbles, six passes defensed and two blocked kicks.

The 6-foot2, 195-pounder then broke into the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Raiders in the spring of 2022. He appeared in all 17 games for Las Vegas as a rookie—totaling three starts, 36 combined tackles, three passes defensed and a forced fumble.
