Browns is expected to re-sign with the Giants on a two-year, $4 million deal, the New York Daily News reports. Brown is fresh off the best statistical season of his 13-year career, as he converted 30-of-32 field goal attempts for the Giants last year. Although he'll turn 37 years old soon, Brown has shown little signs of aging and should provide a reliable weapon in New York's kicking game for the next couple campaigns.
Brown had a strong season, making 30 of 32 field-goal attempts and 44 of 45 extra points. Moreover, Brown made all three of his attempts from 50-plus. Expect him to return as the team's kicker again next year.
Giants kicker Josh Brown was 4 for 4 on field goal attempts during Sunday's 27-26 loss to the Cowboys. He also converted both of his extra point attempts. Brown made the four field goals from 50, 40, 30 and 19 yards.
With Giants kicker Josh Brown trying to recover from a bruised leg, the team signed kicker Chris Boswell, reports the New York Daily News. Boswell was signed to handle the kicking duties during Thursday's preseason finale. Brown reportedly suffered the injury while attempting to make a tackle during the second preseason game.
Josh Brown's job as the Giants' kicker just got harder, but he's not complaining, according to the official team site. NFL owners approved the competition committee's proposal to move the placement of the football on the extra point attempts form the two to the 15-yard line, making what used to be a 20-yard kick into a 33-yard attempt. Brown sees the change as an opportunity to showcase the skills of a kicker. "I'm excited about it," Brown, the Giants' kicker, said today. "I believe it adds higher value to a person that come out in December in bad weather and still be consistent. Those qualities are still very exciting to me. It's a play that you won't turn the TV off for anymore. Every point matters in this game and now with the longer extra point, there's added difficulty to it. It's not a gimme. There are levels of excitement that are going to make the game more appealing when scores are very, very tight." Brown was perfect last season during extra point attempts, going 44 for 44.
