The Giants announced Monday they signed safety Craig Dahl. To clear a roster spot, safety Stevie Brown was released.
The Giants announced Monday they have signed safety Stevie Brown, who was a member of the team from 2012-14 but was signed by the Texans in the offseason before being released. Brown had eight interceptions for the Giants in 2012 but missed the entire 2013 season and struggled to regain his form in 2014. Still, with the Giants' defensive backfield in flux, bringing back a familiar face was an easy decision. "Pretty exciting just being able to come back here," he said. "[It] seems like a position of need and it is a good fit [so] definitely exciting to come back."
Giants' free-agent safety Stevie Brown signed with the Texans on Wednesday night, according to a report by the Houston Chronicle. Brown had eight interceptions in 2012, but he struggled this year after coming back from an ACL injury in 2013. ESPN reported that Brown and the Texans have come to terms and will sign shortly.

Giants safety Quintin Demps practiced with the first-team defense Tuesday and it appears he will replace Stevie Brown in the starting lineup at free safety Thursday at Washington after Brown was benched Sunday against the Texans. "We're looking at all the possibilities. We're just trying to get better," defensive coordinator Perry Fewell said, per NJ.com. "It was an internal Giants decision [to make the switch] and I'll just leave it at that."
