He does not know yet how he will figure in the offence against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Friday night, but Jeffery Webb simply is glad to be part of the equation again.

The Argonauts receiver has missed the past four games with a groin injury and is looking at his return to the lineup as a bit of a re-birth.

“I really don’t like the way I played in the first three weeks,” Webb said after taking some extra passes from quarterback Cleo Lemon following practice on Wednesday.

“Dropping balls — I count myself on that. I want to turn over a new leaf.”

Webb has the football knowledge to be productive.

A sixth-round choice by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2006, Webb played in 30 regular-season games over three seasons for the National Football League club. But like many players who hitch their football wagon to a team north of the Canada-U.S. border, Webb found the terminology, bigger field and extra man in the CFL initially somewhat puzzling.

Webb caught 10 passes for 101 yards for the Argos before he was hurt.

Now, Argos head coach Jim Barker thinks there is just one thing Webb, 28, needs to do.

“He has to relax and he will be fine,” Barker said.

“Once he does that, he is going to be around here a long time.”
