The New York Giants report for training camp on July 21, less than two months from now. Between now and then we have been breaking down the 90-man roster the team will bring to camp. Today, let's get to know placekicker Josh Brown.
2013 Season In Review
In his first season wearing a Giants' uniform, Brown was impressive. After signing with the Giants in last year's offseason and beating out David Buehler in training camp, Brown went 23-for-26 in 2013. The 23 made field goals were his highest since he made 33 in 2010 and his 88.5 percent success rate -- discounting 2012 when he played in just four games -- was his highest since 2004. Brown made eight field goals between 40-49 yards and two from beyond 50 yards. His long was 52.
2014 Season Outlook
Brown re-signed with the Giants over the offseason on a two-year deal and, barring injuries, shouldn't have much trouble retaining the starting kicker position. The Giants did bring in Brandon McManus, an undrafted rookie from Temple, but the 22-year-old looks like little more than a rep rest for Brown.
