It's final: Joe Webb is moving to receiver.
"We had been talking about it for a while, and we made the decision that this was the way to go after we had our draft," Frazier told the newspaper.
Two weeks ago, Webb told 1500ESPN.com he had been training at receiver in anticipation of a move. The 26-year-old hasn't played the position on a full-time basis since rookie minicamp in 2010.
"Every year's a big year for me," Webb told 1500ESPN.com on May 1. "I don't think about the money or the contract, things like that. I have a passion for football. Anytime I can touch the field, man, I'm thankful, because there's a lot of guys out there injured and didn't even make it to the NFL."
