Former William and Mary cornerback B.W. Webb signed a four-year contract with Dallas that includes a $443,380 signing bonus, and he will count $515,845 against the team’s 2013 salary cap.
Webb, a Newport News native and Warwick High graduate, was a fourth-round pick of the Cowboys.
His signing bonus and salary-cap number are slotted to his draft position, under the NFL’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement, which is designed to minimize rookie holdouts and instances in which rookies earn more than veterans.
As fans feasted on bargain hot dogs, soda and popcorn with prizes from the old days, the Norfolk Tides (27-12) feasted on runs.
On the annual Turn Back the Clock Night promotion, the South Division-leading Tides (27-12) opened a homestand with a 12-7 win over Lehigh Valley, scoring seven runs in the eighth to erase the IronPigs' 7-5 lead and extend the Tides’ winning streak to four.
Luis Exposito’s two-run double off the left-field wall provided an 8-7 lead. Brandon Wood followed with a two-run single, and Russ Canzler belted a two-run homer to close the uprising.
The IronPigs, Philadelphia's top affiliate, fell to 16-22.

The host Harrisburg Senators rolled past Richmond 8-1, evening their series at a win apiece and dropping the Flying Squirrels (18-19) below .500.
Former U.Va. outfielder Jarrett Parker, the game's first batter, drilled a home run for Richmond, but Harrisburg (18-21), Washington's Double-A farm club, allowed little else. Jared Head's third home run of the season gave the Senators the lead for good at 2-1 in the third inning.
