Minnesota Vikings WR Joe Webb said he is fine with moving from quarterback to wide receiver but expects it to take some times to get comfortable at the position. "I'm doing real good. I still have a long ways to go, but I'm getting better every day and that's all you can do. I just take it one step at a time, one day at a time, one play at a time, and hopefully it can turn out as a success," Webb said.

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson will be given an opportunity to earn a starting wide receiver spot across from WR Greg Jennings this year, according to head coach Leslie Frazier. WR Joe Webb will be insurance in case Patterson doesn't pan out.
Fantasy Tip: It's tough to predict Patterson's fantasy value heading into his rookie season. Aside from Greg Jennings, Christian Ponder doesn't have much to work with at wideout, and Kyle Rudolph will remain a big target in the passing game. Patterson is a bit of a project and will have to improve his route-running skills dramatically to make an impact immediately. Consider him a late-round flier in deep leagues.

Minnesota Vikings QB Joe Webb said the team has not told him what position he will play during offseason workouts but will be willing to move to wide receiver if asked. "Yeah, I'm comfortable," Webb said. "Whatever it is to help the team. I'm a team player. So, as long as I get on the field. I'm excited to get on the field this year. Hopefully, we can make that happen. But in the meantime, whatever they ask me to do, I'm going to do it."

Minnesota Vikings QB Joe Webb has been catching passes in anticipation for the team to ask him to switch to wide receiver. "They're still figuring it out," Webb said. "But it looks like, if I am going to receiver, I'm doing a lot more work at it so I can work on my craft at receiver since I haven't been there since, what, 2010 when I first got drafted?"

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder remains the unquestioned starter entering his third NFL season. However, if he goes into a protracted slump like last season, the coaching staff could be inclined to take a look at QB Matt Cassel, who will make $3.7 million this season even if he doesn't take a snap. Cassel fits the system of offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave better than QB Joe Webb, who is expected to serve as the third QB.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier indicated the team is still considering the possibility of moving QB Joe Webb to another position. "[Webb] is such a talented athlete that we want to make sure that we're doing the right thing by him and our team, as well," Frazier said. "That's something we'll continue to discuss as we go forward."

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said he wants to keep QB Joe Webb at quarterback and is not looking to try him at other positions in 2013.

Minnesota Vikings QB Joe Webb was limited to just three snaps in mop-up duty during the regular season, and he started the Wild Card game loss against the Green Bay Packers. He is expected to have competition for the No. 2 job as he enters a contract year, and he could be shopped to a team committed to exploring zone-read possibilities.

The Minnesota Vikings will be looking for quarterbacks to compete with QB Joe Webb to the backup position for QB Christian Ponder this offseason. Free-agent QBs Derek Anderson (Panthers), Matt Moore (Dolphins), David Carr (Giants), Matt Leinart (Raiders), Byron Leftwich (Steelers), Bruce Gradkowski (Bengals), Jason Campbell (Bears) and Rex Grossman (Redskins) are options.
