PK Josh Brown - New York Giants
|6-0, 202||Born: 4-29-1979||College: Nebraska||Drafted: Round 7|
Quick fantasy outlook: Shortly after drafting Greg Zuerlein last year, the St. Louis Rams released Brown - who had a down 2011 and would have garnered a hefty 2012 salary. Brown eventually resurfaced later last year in Cincinnati and kicked well in December and the playoffs filling in for injured Mike Nugent. This offseason the Giants did not re-sign kicker Lawrence Tynes and subsequently added Brown. Also added was David Buehler, who might have a shot at a kickoff specialist role, but is not a realistic threat to Brown's placekicking role. Brown will be working with holder/punter Steve Weatherford and long snapper Zac DeOssie. The key coaching staff members remain intact from last year. After ranking 24th in kicker scoring opportunities for two straight years, the Giants jumped back into top five at 3rd in 2012. Brown enters what could be a productive situation.
