Safety Stevie Brown is next on our list as we continue our look at the 90-man roster the New York Giants will bring to training camp in late July.
2012 Season In Review
Brown came to the Giants after failing to make an impact with the Oakland Raiders or Indianapolis Colts in his first two seasons. He definitely made an impact with the Giants. He had a team-high eight interceptions -- second in the NFL -- and forced two fumbles while starting 11 games, helping the Giants defense finish fourth in the league in takeaways with 35.
With Kenny Phillips in Philadelphia, Brown, who will be 26 next season, enters 2013 as a full-fledged starter for the first time in his four-year career. Asking Brown to reprise what he did in 2012 in terms of turnovers might be unrealistic. The Giants would settle for solid safety play from Brown that helps the Giants do a better job eliminating big plays from the opposition's passing game, an area of weakness the past couple of seasons. There is no reason to expect that Brown won't have a solid season for the Giants in 2013.
