Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- No one on the Vikings roster may have more at stake in training camp this year than the guy who started at quarterback in last year's playoff game against Green Bay.

Joe Webb is making a switch to Wide Receiver, and so far he's looking pretty good in that spot. The coaches decided to move on from the quarterback experiment for Webb and signed Matt Cassel.

The move puts Webb in a fight for a roster spot, it's likely that if he makes the team he'll be the 4th or 5th wide receiver. But, right now he's just focused on proving himself.

Joe Webb- Started 3 games at QB: "That's what it's all about, making plays, especially when you're out there at Receiver. The quarterback has trust in you that's why they're throwing you the ball. They trust you

to make plays. I'm comfortable with it. Any chance I can get on the field and make some plays. I'm happy.

Bill Musgrave- Vikings Offensive Coordinator: "He's the same guy everyday, kind of like Phil Loadholt. Joe has an aura about him. He's very positive, he's willing to work and willing to study."

Detroit Lakes native Adam Thielen is trying to make that Vikings wide receiver group as well. We'll hear from him later in the week.
