Giants Roster Breakdown: Andre Brown

Andre Brown runs vs. the Carolina Panthers - US PRESSWIRE

Andre Brown emerged as a quality running back in 2012. What can the Giants expect from him in 2013?

Let's continue our look at the 90-man roster the New York Giants will bring to training camp in late July. Here we turn our attention to a player who emerged as a contributor in 2012, and should have a key role in 2013 -- running back Andre Brown.

2012 Season In Review

After bouncing around the league since the Giants drafted him in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft Brown, 6-foot, 240 pounds, finally established himself as a legitimate NFL back. He carried 73 times for 385 yards (5.3 yards per carry) and scored eight touchdowns. Brown still referred to the season as "disappointing," because he broke his leg and finished it on injured reserve. Still, it was a breakout year for the powerful inside runner who had only two NFL carries entering the season.

2013 Outlook

Brown figures to share the running back load with David Wilson. The expectation is that Brown will handle much of the short-yardage and goal-line duties, roles at which he excelled in 2012. If he can stay healthy the 26-year-old should have a productive season as a key part of the Giants' rushing attack.
