The Pierce County Herald has reported that Joe Webb, the Minnesota Vikings second-year quarterback, has been working out with Brett Favre over the past couple of weeks in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

While head coach Leslie Frazier has indicated that Webb will get a chance to compete for the starting quarterback job, there is virtually little chance that when the Vikings start the regular season, Webb will be under center. 

The best way for Webb to contribute for the Vikings in 2011 would be to move back to wide receiver. Frazier could also choose to use Webb in the wildcat formation.

Last season, in two starts, Webb completed 37 of 58 passes with no touchdowns and an interception, resulting in a 72.5 passer rating. Overall, he he was 54 of 89 with three interceptions—a lowly 60.9 rating, almost 10 points lower than that of Favre.

The only touchdowns Webb scored were two on the ground, as he averaged 6.7 yards on 18 carries.

While there are a lot of pointers a 20-year veteran can provide, there are a few things Vikings fans hope Webb doesn't learn from No. 4.

But of course, the number has to be four.
