Webb isn't going to be the primary backup this season. He's going to be the third QB. The two veteran guys are battling for the backup spot. Since Webb isn't going to be allowed to compete for the #2 spot, the other guys get the reps.
Pretty sure that's the reasoning. I think it's sensible since this team appears to be good enough, especially on defense, that it should be able to survive an injury where Eli misses some time -- provided that the backup is a competent NFL quarterback.
Webb may end up being an All-Pro QB but in college, he didn't line up under center. He's not ready to start in the league yet and won't be at the end of training camp, regardless.
