High school career

Webster attended St. James High School in St. James, Louisiana and was a two sport star in both football and basketball. He was an all state quarterback wearing jersey #1 for the Wildcats football team and an all state guard wearing jersey #11 for the basketball team. He was recruited as a wide receiver coming out of high school but was later asked to play cornerback at LSU by then coach Nick Saban.

Professional career

Webster at the New York Giants Super Bowl rally at Giants Stadium.

In 2007, Webster was limited to special teams duty or even inactive after starting the first few weeks after what was seen as a widely poor performance in the Giants opening weeks of the season. Later on in the season, he had a good game against the Buffalo Bills in week 16, which was a precursor to his playoff success. He had an interception and a touchdown against the Bills. In the Wild Card Playoff game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he intercepted Jeff Garcia in the end zone. He also recovered a fumble by Buccaneers returner Micheal Spurlock at the beginning of the second half. This turnover set up a Giant field goal. In the NFC divisional Playoff game, he came up with near shutdown defense on All-Pro Terrell Owens. He also made what turned out to be the game-winning interception against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game, sending the Giants to Super Bowl XLII.[2]

In his career he has a total of 141 tackles, two sacks, six forced fumbles, 44 passes defended and five interceptions, one of which he returned 34 yards for a touchdown in the 2007 season in a game against the Buffalo Bills.

In Super Bowl XLII, Webster provided a huge performance through the first three quarters. Unfortunately, on the go-ahead Patriots scoring drive, he fell down, which allowed New England Patriots receiver Randy Moss to score an easy touchdown on a key third down play, putting the Patriots up 14-10 with less than three minutes to go in the game. But, he came back to deflect a pass from Tom Brady to Randy Moss on the next drive to prevent the Patriots from scoring, and all but securing the Super Bowl victory.

On December 14, 2008, the New York Giants gave him a 5 year $43.5 million deal with $20 million guaranteed.[3]

During the Giants opening home game against the Redskins on September 13, 2009, Webster was involved in an altercation with Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss. Both players were penalized for Unsportsmanlike Conduct.
