NFC East Rumors: Kelce, Giants, Redskins

Standout offensive tackle Jason Peters re-upped with the Eagles today, agreeing to a contract extension that adds four more years to his current deal, keeping him under contract through 2018. While Peters was the first Philadelphia offensive lineman to reach a new agreement this offseason, he likely won’t be the last, according to Jason La Canfora of and Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer (Twitter links). Both reporters believe it’s just a matter of time until the Eagles also announce an extension for center Jason Kelce, whose rookie contract is set to expire a year from now.

Here are a few more Wednesday updates on the Eagles’ three division rivals:

  • As the Giants look to upgrade their offensive line, the club is eyeing potential free agent guards, according to Jordan Raanan of While New York does think veteran Chris Snee will return in 2014, according to Ian Rapoport of (Twitter link), the team could target players like Jon Asamoah, Geoff Schwartz, Chad Rinehart, Zane Beadles, and Shawn Lauvao in free agency, says Raanan.
  • A few former teammates thought Corey Webster would retire after his contract with the Giants voided this month, but Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports 1 says (via Twitter) the veteran cornerback plans to play in 2014. Due to injuries and poor play in 2013, Webster is unlikely to land much more than a minimum contract in free agency.
  • Redskins linebacker Bryan Kehl, who is eligible for free agency next month, has yet to discuss a new deal with the team, tweets Tarik El-Bashir of (Twitter link). Meanwhile, the club continues to talk to free agent linebacker Brian Orakpo, but no agreement is imminent, writes Mark Maske of the Washington Post.
  • Although safety is an area of need for the Cowboys this offseason, Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News explains why the team shouldn’t consider addressing the position in the first round of the draft.

Giants Void Contracts Of Myers, Webster

On Friday, tight end Brandon Myers and cornerback Corey Webster saw their deals automatically voided, writes Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News. The two deals were terminated at 3pm CT earlier today.

Myers inked a four-year deal with the Giants last season with three voidable years while Webster had one voidable year remaining on his contract. Myers, 29 in September, made a name for himself in 2012 with the Raiders by hauling in 79 receptions for 806 yards, including a brilliant 14 catch, 130 yard, and one touchdown showing against the Bears late in the season. However, he didn’t do much for Big Blue, recording 47 catches for 522 yards and a pivotal missed ball against those same Bears that dropped the Giants to 0-6.

Webster, 32 in March, appeared in just four games thanks to injuries and would have been largely out-of-action anyway after being leapfrogged by Trumaine McBride on the depth chart. Webster was once a top player at his position but he’s a couple of years away from when he was a feared CB. Ultimately, the Giants had little reason to retain either player.

Cutting ties with Myers and Webster helps to add to the Giants’ projected $13.7MM in cap space. However, the Giants have a lot of work to do after an embarrassing 2013. The Giants have to rebuild offensive line, find playmakers to possibly supplant Hakeem Nicks and David Wilson, and bolster one of the league’s weakest defenses.
