Free agent CB Corey Webster wants to play in the NFL in 2014.
Webster is hoping to rehab his image after nagging injuries and poor play sent him tumbling down the Giants' depth chart. He was accused by ex-Giant Carl Banks of quitting on his teammates and stealing money from the club. Webster, who turns 32 on Sunday, isn't going to find anything more than one-year offers at the veteran's minimum. He was among the league's worst corners in 2012. Wed, Feb 26, 2014 12:22:00 PM

Former Giants All-Pro LB Carl Banks ripped free agent CB Corey Webster on Twitter after news broke that Webster's contract had voided.

Banks accused Webster of "grand larceny" for collecting $5 million in base salary despite missing all but four 2013 games. Banks later accused Webster of "quitting on his teammates," attributing the absences to "mystery injuries." Banks is currently a Giants radio analyst and presumably has insight into the team. Webster turns 32 in March. He's not going to be a hot free agent.

Giants CB Corey Webster's contract has voided, making him an unrestricted free agent.

He almost certainly would've been cut had the 2014 portion of his deal not voided. Now going on age 32, Webster's body may be breaking down after missing all but four of the Giants' 2013 games. As a 16-game starter the season before, Webster graded out 110th among 113 qualifying cornerbacks per PFF. Webster may receive one-year offers for the veteran's minimum in free agency.

Giants placed CB Corey Webster on injured reserve with a groin injury, ending his season.

It's surprising it took this long, as Webster hasn't played since Week 8. Webster finishes 2013 with just four appearances to his name, and was ineffective in 170 snaps. He dealt with hip and ankle issues in addition to his groin injury. Signed for $1 million in a "voidable year" next season, Webster will almost certainly be gone from the G-Men. A starter since 2008, Webster will have to prove he's healthy before latching on somewhere as veteran insurance. Webster turns 32 in March.

Giants CB Corey Webster (groin/ankle) has been ruled out for Week 10.

Webster's body seems to be letting him down at age 31. He's an obvious release candidate after the season. Webster has played in four games this year.
Fri, Nov 8, 2013 02:35:00 PM

Giants CB Corey Webster (groin) is probable for Week 7.

Webster missed the last four games with groin/hip injuries. His return is an upgrade for a Giants defense that currently ranks 20th against the pass. Slot CB Jayron Hosley (hamstring) has been officially ruled out for Monday night's game with the Vikings and remains week-to-week.
Sat, Oct 19, 2013 01:42:00 PM

Giants CB Corey Webster (hip) is not expected to play in Thursday's game against the Bears.

Aaron Ross (back) is on injured reserve and Jayron Hosley (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday. It's an obvious dream matchup for Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Michael Vick and Nick Foles combined to go 22-of-39 for 302 yards with two touchdowns and no picks against the Giants in Week 5.
Wed, Oct 9, 2013 09:44:00 AM

Giants CB Corey Webster (hip) is listed as doubtful for Week 5 against the Eagles.

Michael Vick has a sterling matchup against a Giants defense that is not only allowing the most points in football, but will be without a huge chunk of its secondary. Aaron Ross, who had been starting for Webster, has been ruled out due to a back injury. Slot CB Jayron Hosley is out with a strained hamstring.

Giants LCB Corey Webster (hip) has been ruled out for Week 4 at Kansas City.

If Alex Smith could get the football outside the numbers, Webster's loss would upgrade Dwayne Bowe and Donnie Avery's Week 4 fantasy matchups. Look for Aaron Ross to make another start at left corner opposite RCB Prince Amukamara.
Fri, Sep 27, 2013 01:13:00 PM

Giants CB Corey Webster (hip) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Panthers.

Aaron Ross will start in his place opposite Prince Amukamara. What was already a juicy matchup for Cam Newton and Steve Smith gets even better.
Sat, Sep 21, 2013 01:28:00 PM

Giants CB Corey Webster (hip) is listed as doubtful for Week 3.

He isn't going to play, worsening an already poor Giants defense that will now have to lean heavily on its limited depth. Upgrade Steve Smith's matchup.
Fri, Sep 20, 2013 01:17:00 PM

Giants CB Corey Webster missed Thursday's practice with a hip injury.

Webster wasn't on the injury report Wednesday, so this is a new injury and one to monitor. Webster is New York's top corner, though his play has fallen off considerably since the start of last season. Even if Webster plays, Sunday's matchup with the Panthers remains a juicy one for Cam Newton.
Fri, Sep 20, 2013 09:09:00 AM

Corey Webster has agreed to take a pay cut in order to remain with the Giants.

The move saves $4.5 million in salary cap room. Webster had all the makings of a true No. 1 corner as recently as midway through the 2011 season. Since then, his play has tailed off dramatically. It came to a head this past year, when he graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 109 corner out of 113 qualifying players. Webster will play out the final year of his deal for $4 million instead of the $7.25 million he was scheduled to earn.

ESPN New York suggests CB Corey Webster may need to take a pay cut this offseason.

Webster is due $7.25 million in the final year of a six-year pact, which is awfully high for a guy that was completely torched in 2012. According to Pro Football Focus, opposing quarterbacks had a 106.6 rating when throwing at Webster. He graded out as their fourth-worst corner out of a qualifying 113 players. Webster will turn 31 in March.

The Daily News suggests the Giants could ask CB Corey Webster to take a paycut this offseason.

Once considered a rising star as a shadow corner, Webster's play has fallen off dramatically over the last year-and-a-half. It came to a head in Week 16 as the Ravens chose to relentlessly attack Webster instead of rookie Jayron Hosley. He's due $7 million in 2013, the final chapter of a six-year deal signed in 2008. The Giants could be thinking about moving forward with Hosley and Prince Amukamara as their base corners.
