After going unsigned in 2019, Webb signed a contract with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League (CFL) in April 2020.[5] He did not appear in any games during the season, as it was cancelled due to COVID-19. He was re-signed in February 2021.[6] After beginning the season on the practice roster, he was promoted to the active team prior to their week 6 matchup with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.[2] Against the BC Lions two weeks later, he returned a fumble for a touchdown as time expired to seal a 31–24 win.[7] He was released by the Riders on July 1, 2022, after playing in two games.[8]
