NFL players often insist they do whatever coaches ask of them.

But Vikings quarterback-turned-receiver Joe Webb is proving it with his words and actions.

"I'm a team player so when the coaches come to me and say 'Joe I need you to do this; I need you to do that' I'm all for it" Webb said. "Anything to help the team out. I've always been that way and I'll continue to be that way."

There's speculation Webb might be on the roster bubble. But instead of slotting Webb as a quarterback or a receiver the Vikings might carve out a hybrid spot for him. One scenario could have him serve as the emergency third quarterback behind Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel and a receiver/special-teamer.

Asked Friday about Webb Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said: "We're working him primarily as a receiver but we know he can do a lot of things with the ball in his hands. We're well aware of that. We'll utilize that maybe at some point but right now we're working him as a receiver."

Webb didn't catch a pass in the first two preseason games both losses but he turned heads with athletic plays at training camp and in practices at Winter Park. Thursday during a two-minute drill Webb made two catches on a drive that was capped by a touchdown pass from Cassel to receiver LaMark Brown. Webb also has been working with the special teams.
