Over his three seasons with the New York Giants, Josh Brown has been the most accurate field goal kicker in franchise history. Brown signed a two-yea, $4 million contract to stay with the Giants during the offseason, and he's next as we continue to profile the 90-man roster the Giants will bring to training camp later this summer.

2015 Season in Review

Brown, 37, had the best season of his 13-year NFL career in 2015 and, as a result, earned his first Pro Bowl berth.

  • Brown made 30-of-32 field goals, a career-best 93.8 percent. In three seasons with the Giants, Brown has hit 77-of-84 field goal tries, a team-record 91.7 percentage (minimum 50 attempts).
  • Brown scored a career-high 134 points, the fifth-highest total in the NFL and the fourth-highest total in Giants history.
  • Brown made all three of his attempts from 50 or more yards, including a pair of 53-yarders. That ties the Giants record for 50+-yard field goals in a single season with three other kickers.
  • Brown made his first 25 field goal attempts in 2015, extending his career-high and franchise-record streak to 29 consecutive successes before he missed a 48-yard try vs. the Jets.

2016 Season Outlook

More of the same. Brown's three seasons with the Giants have been the most accurate and consistent of his career. There is no reason to believe he can't continue to be among the league's best kickers for the next couple of seasons. Brown's kickoffs are good enough, especially with the touchback now bringing the ball out to the 25-yard line, he keeps himself in terrific physical condition, he's as accurate as any kicker in the league and still has the ability to hit the long field goal when needed.
