According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cleveland Browns will host free agent cornerback B.W. Webb for a visit on Tuesday.

Webb was a fourth-round pick by the Dallas Cowboys in 2013. Oddly, he’s played for a different team in each of his four years in the NFL — Dallas (2013), Steelers (2014), Titans (2015), and Saints (2016). Webb saw the most playing time last year when he played in 14 games for New Orleans, starting 8 of them. He finished the season with 28 tackles, 11 passes defended, and 1 interception.

From what I could find at Pro Football Focus, Webb was part of a duo that "couldn't sustain periods of good play," allowing a passer rating of over 100.0 on the year. The 588 snaps from last year and his age (27) might be attractive for a depth role on the team.
