Giants released K Josh Brown.
"We believed we did the right thing at every juncture in our relationship with Josh," Giants owner John Mara said, quite incorrectly, in a statement. "Our beliefs, our judgments were misguided. We accept that responsibility." Mara went on to talk in a manner that made Brown, and not his ex-wife, sound like the victim. Brown's NFL career is over. Oct 25 - 2:35 PM

Suspended Giants K Josh Brown issued a statement on Tuesday.

We'd like to call it an apology, but it doesn't sound like one. "It is important to share that I never struck my wife, and never would," Brown claimed. "Abuse takes many forms, and is not a gray area. Through the past several years I have worked to identify and rectify my own behaviors. The road to rehabilitation is a journey and a constant modification of a way of life." Brown, who was accused of being violent over 20 times by his ex-wife, seems very sorry he got caught. It's unbelievable the Giants have yet to release him.

The Giants are expected to meet with K Josh Brown on Tuesday.

The Giants should have cut Brown a week ago when details of his domestic abuse became public (they really should have done it in January after the league intervened during a domestic dispute at the Pro Bowl). Now it appears his fate will be decided on Tuesday. With Robbie Gould now handling kicking duties for the Giants, Brown's release seems inevitable. The 37-year-old has likely played his last game in the NFL.
Oct 25 - 12:27 PM

NFL placed Giants K Josh Brown on the commissioner's exempt list.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Brown won't play for the Giants again. Because the Giants refused to internally discipline Brown beyond holding him out of Week 7 in London, the league smartly (for once) stepped in and placed him on the same list on which Adrian Peterson spent almost all of the 2014 season. Due to his admitted abuse of his ex-wife, Brown's NFL career is likely over.
Oct 21 - 2:32 PM

Giants K Josh Brown will not travel with the team to London for its Week 7 game against the Rams.

Brown beat his wife multiple times, and new evidence came to light Wednesday night and more continues to come out Thursday. The NFL and the Giants said they were "unaware" of the new findings, but it's been revealed this afternoon that the league actually helped Brown's now-ex-wife switch hotel rooms at the Pro Bowl in January after a drunk Brown was pounding on the room door. Brown is certain to be released in the near future. Amazing that it hasn't happened yet.
Oct 20 - 5:14 PM

The NFL has re-opened its investigation into allegations of domestic abuse against Giants K Josh Brown.

Reports surfaced in August that Brown had been violent with his ex-wife over 20 times, but the NFL supposedly lacked any smoking gun evidence to impose more than a one-game ban. That evidence surfaced Thursday in the form of a disturbing admission from Brown himself in a police report. The NFL has to be regretting not taking harsher action sooner. Brown's roster spot is probably going to be toast.
Oct 20 - 1:56 PM

Giants reinstated K Josh Brown from the reserve/suspended list.

Brown has been accused of truly disturbing things by his ex-wife, but neither the NFL nor the Giants cared to impose more than a one-game suspension. Brown's fill-in Randy Bullock missed an extra point in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.
Sep 12 - 4:06 PM

Suspended Giants K Josh Brown's ex-wife said Brown had been physically violent with her more than 20 times.

Brown was given a one-game suspension earlier this week due to a May 2015 incident. But Brown's ex-wife said it wasn't a one-time deal. It's fair to wonder if the Giants will detach themselves from this and simply cut Brown.
Aug 19 - 9:49 AM

Suspended K Josh Brown's one-game ban resulted from a domestic violence charge in 2015.

Brown was arrested in May of 2015 for fourth-degree domestic violence. He reportedly "quarreled" with the alleged victim and "grabbed her wrist" as she was picking up a phone. A police report stated the woman had "redness" on the wrist, "and a small cut, possibly from a fingernail." Said Brown in a statement, "While I do not agree with the suspension, I will accept it. I have exhausted the appeals process and have no other options along those lines."
Aug 17 - 8:56 PM

NFL suspended Giants K Josh Brown one game for violating the league's personal-conduct policy.

We have no idea what Brown did to earn this ban, as his name hasn't been in the news in years. Tom Obarski is the other kicker on the Giants' roster, and he could handle kicking duties Week 1 before Brown returns for Week 2.
Aug 17 - 3:58 PM

Giants re-signed K Josh Brown to a two-year, $4 million contract.

The deal includes $1 million fully guaranteed and can be worth as much as $4.75 million. One of the better kickers in the league last season, it is surprising it took this long for Brown to get a deal. Brown converted 30-of-32 field goal attempts last season and only missed one extra point attempt in 45 tries. Brown will remain a high-end fantasy kicker this season.
Apr 18 - 12:55 PM

Josh Brown has won the Giants' kicker job.

K Brandon McManus was cut Tuesday after going 2-of-2 on field goals and producing 10 touchbacks on 11 kickoffs this preseason. Brown nailed his lone field goal attempt and all 10 extra points. He's a middling fantasy option.
Tue, Aug 26, 2014 09:46:00 AM

Giants re-signed K Josh Brown to a two-year, $2.5 million contract.

Brown went a shiny 23-of-26 on field goals last season, including one bomb from 52 yards out and a 7-of-8 mark from 40-49 yards away. He was only an unreliable fantasy option because those 26 attempts ranked 26th in the league.
Tue, Mar 11, 2014 12:37:00 PM

A deal between the Giants and free agent K Josh Brown is likely.

In his first season with the Giants, Brown went 23-of-26 on field goals -- including a 7-of-8 mark from 40-49 yards. He said he expects to speak with the brass in the next four or five days and thinks a contract will get hammered out. "I'm not looking to make it rain here or anything. I have three children and a wife and I just want to support my family that way as long as I can in this league," he said.
Thu, Jan 30, 2014 08:31:00 AM

The Newark Star-Ledger expects the Giants to be interested in re-signing K Josh Brown.

Brown signed a one-year deal with the Giants and had arguably the best season of his career, drilling 23-of-26 field goals and all 31 extra points. He also produced 35 touchbacks on kickoffs. Brown, 35 in April, will likely secure another one-year deal from the G-Men.
