The bloodletting has begun. Yesterday, the Giants voided the contracts of CB Corey Webster and TE Brandon Myers. From Ebenezer Samuel of the Daily News:
“Two of the most disappointing players in the Giants’ disappointing 2013 season are officially no longer with the team.
On Friday, tight end Brandon Myers and corner Corey Webster saw their deals automatically voided. Myers had signed a four-year deal with the Giants last season with three voidable years. Webster, meanwhile, had one voidable year remaining on his contract. Those deals voided at 4 p.m. Friday.
The Giants had little reason to bring either player back. Myers arrived with plenty of promise, but he struggled throughout the season, catching just 47 passes for 522 yards, and he may forever be known for the pass he didn’t catch in Chicago, when Eli Manning’s deep throw was just out of his reach, resulting in an interception and sealing the sixth loss of the Giants’ 0-6 start to the year. “

Webster only played in four games last year. His status was dubious all season, suffering from an ankle and a hip before being placed on IR in December with a groin injury. His departure is no surprise to anyone, as he is basically finished at this point.
Myers was not the prototypical Giants’ TE and could not fill the role in the manner that Martellus Bennett and Jake Ballard had in previous seasons. With a new offensive system being installed, Myers will not fit in again this season. So off he goes…
