East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - The New York Giants have reached an
agreement with veteran kicker Josh Brown, the team announced Wednesday.
Brown comes to the Giants after a solid five-game showing for the Cincinnati
Bengals last year, during which the 33-year-old went 11-of-12 on field goal
attempts during the regular season and kicked two more in the team's loss to
Houston in the AFC Wild Card Playoffs.
The 10-year pro, who was signed by Cincinnati in December as an injury
replacement for Mike Nugent, has made 231 field goals and hit on 81.3 percent
of his three-point attempts for his career. Brown spent his first five seasons
with the Seattle Seahawks before a four-year stint with the St. Louis Rams
Brown tied for the NFL lead with 33 successful field goals while with the Rams
With Brown now in the fold, the Giants are expected to move on from Lawrence
Tynes, the club's kicker over the past six seasons who is currently an
unrestricted free agent.
The Giants also signed onetime Dallas Cowboy David Buehler earlier this
offseason and have first-year candidate Jake Rogers on the roster as well.
