Giants void contracts of Brandon Myers and Corey Webster


On Friday, the the contracts of tight end Brandon Myers and cornerback Corey Webster were automatically voided at 4 p.m. Myers had signed a four-year deal last spring but the final three were all voidable; Webster had one remaining voidable year on his contract.

Both players had disappointing 2013 seasons and clearly, the Giants were no longer open to continuing with them on the roster.

Despite a lot of excitement following his signing, Myers caught just 47 passes for 522 yards and four touchdowns. He also proved to be a major liability as a blocker, something the Giants simply cannot afford at this time.

Webster, meanwhile, has been with the team since being selected in the second round of the 2005 NFL draft, but his performance has seen a rapid decline over the last two seasons. The 31-year-old appeared in just four games for the Giants and was eventually placed on season-ending injured reserve in December. Though the aforementioned injuries likely took their toll this season, the Giants were apparently unwilling to give him another year.
