    Giants Must Find A New Role For Corey Webster

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/13/...bster-in-2013/


    Excerpt: "New York Giants' cornerback Corey Webster just finished his eighth season with the team. He's been part of two Super Bowl championship squads and has established himself as a mainstay in Big Blue's secondary. However, after having perhaps he worst season of any starting cornerback in the NFL in 2012, the soon to be 31 year old Webster showed serious signs of decline. With that, general manager Jerry Reese is now tasked with finding a replacement for Webster at the No. 1 cornerback position

    Obviously, the most logical answer to that dilemma is by handing those responsibilities off to Prince Amukamara. Despite a tumultuous rookie season, Prince rebounded to have a productive 2012 campaign. He was hampered by injuries in the latter stages of the year, but Amukamara's play was perhaps the most consistent aspect of a secondary that was a dumpster fire for most of the season. We can count on Prince to further improve next year. However, there's not much behind him on the cornerback depth chart.

    Barring a bounce back season, Webster is a No. 3 corner at this point of his career. Terrell Thomas is coming off the third ACL tear of his career and second in as many seasons, while Jayron Hosley is undersized and has trouble playing outside of the slot. There's not much talent lining the cornerback depth chart heading into the offseason, which begs the question: How is the Giants secondary supposed to improve in 2013?" Read more...

    That could be a tall order for 3 ACL tears

    I think he'll make the effort, but will his knee hold up or hold him back?
