 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -Corey Webster, who has developed into one the NFL's top cornerbacks over the past year, signed a five-year, $43 million contract extension with the New York Giants on Monday.
Webster will receiver $20 million in guaranteed money under the deal that runs through 2013. The fourth-year player would have been a free agent at the end of the season.
``Corey has been a outstanding person and player in his short career for the Giants,'' general manager Jerry Reese said. ``We are very happy to get this deal done.''
Webster has started every game at right cornerback this season. He has three interceptions, tied with fellow cornerback Aaron Ross for the team lead. He also has two forced fumbles.
``He really came into his own the latter part of last year, and that has carried over into the 2008 season, where he has shown that he is one of the top corners in the league,'' Reese said Sunday evening.
ffs when Sam Madison suffered a sports hernia.
Webster held Tampa Bay's Joey Galloway to one catch in the NFC wild-card game. A week later, he had five tackles, broke up a pass and helped limit Dallas to 182 yards passing in the divisional playoff.
Webster set up the Giants' overtime victory in the NFC title game when he intercepted Brett Favre in Green Bay. In the Super Bowl, he helped limit Randy Moss to five catches.
Bills
Rookie wide receiver James Hardy will miss the rest of the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee early in the first quarter against the Jets on Sunday.
Hardy, the Bills' second-round pick out of Indiana, was hurt blocking down the right sideline on a 35-yard run by Marshawn Lynch. He had nine catches for 87 yards and two touchdowns this season.
