The Giants on Wednesday announced that they had signed 11-year veteran Josh Brown.|||||||
The 34-year-old Brown played four games with Cincinnati last season after Mike Nugent was hurt. He also has played with Seattle and St. Louis, scoring more than 1,000 points. He joins former Dallas Cowboy David Buehler and first-year kicker Jake Rogers on the Giants' roster.
Brown connected on all four of his field goal tries for the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, including that 52-yarder in the third quarter of a 20-19 loss to Dallas. The Cowboys won it with a field goal of their own as time ran out.|||||||
For Brown, it was a solid first step in trying to show the rest of the NFL that he's not finished. The 4-for-4 performance just might jump-start his career, even if it turns out to be his only game with Cincinnati. The Bengals needed a kicker on short notice when Mike Nugent hurt his right calf during practice last week.
