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.

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.

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.

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.

Giants signed K Josh Brown to one-year, $940,000 contract.

The G-Men are moving on from free agent Lawrence Tynes after he missed two field goals from 30-39 yards out over the final four weeks last season. Brown is 65-of-74 from that distance in his career and showed well in a four-game stint with the Bengals last year.

The Cincinnati Enquirer says "you would have to give the edge" to Josh Brown being re-signed by the Bengals, rather than Mike Nugent.

Brown was signed by the Bengals prior to Week 14 when Nugent went on injured reserve with a calf injury. Brown went on to make 13-of-14 field goals, including the game-winning 43-yard boot in Week 16 over the Steelers to clinch a playoff spot. Both kickers are free agents.

The Bengals are believed to be interested in re-signing free agent K Josh Brown.

Brown says he wants to kick for a "contender," and fancies the Bengals fitting that bill with back-to-back playoff appearances. Brown's return would obviously mean Bengals 2012 franchise player Mike Nugent moving on.

Bengals special teams coach Darrin Simmons says his Week 16 kicker will come down to a game-time decision between Josh Brown and Mike Nugent.

Brown has kicked well, so there's no reason to rush Nugent back before his calf is 100 percent. The best bet for fantasy leaguers is to avoid the situation altogether this week.

Bengals signed K Josh Brown.

Mike Nugent will be inactive Sunday due to a calf injury. Brown won the short-term gig by beating out Neil Rackers and Billy Cundiff at a Tuesday workout. The long-time Seahawks and Rams kicker went 21-of-28 for St. Louis last season.

Cardinals had free agent kicker Josh Brown in for a visit earlier this week.

After going 7-for-7 on field goals in the season's first four games, Arizona kicker Jay Feely has been a bit erratic in the past three weeks. Feely has hit just 4-of-7 in the three games, but he did nail a 61-yard kick in that span. Brown spent the preseason with the Jets after he was released by the Rams following the 2011 campaign.

Jets released K Josh Brown.

Nick Folk went 3-for-3 on field goals Sunday night while Brown was 1-for-2, thus ending the competition. Folk wins the right to kick for one of the league's worst offenses. Fantasy owners should be reaching higher.
Mon, Aug 27, 2012 10:25:00 AM

Jets STs coach Mike Westhoff calls the kicking competition between Josh Brown and Nick Folk the "most efficient, competitive battle I've ever seen."

Spoken like a true Jets coach. "I've had some great kickers in my career, but no one's had a better camp than these two guys." Kicker could hold value on a Jets team that will settle for plenty of field goals, but neither player is worth a draft pick before the competition is over. Brown has the more accurate leg, and is likely the favorite.

Jets signed K Josh Brown, formerly of the Rams.

Coach Rex Ryan confirmed Brown will battle Nick Folk for kicking duties this summer. Although Brown has been slightly more consistent than Folk over the past three years, he hasn't battled the elements on a regular basis since signing with the Rams in 2008. The two have been fairly even on kickoffs.

Rams released K Josh Brown.

They're moving forward with rookie Greg Zuerlein. Brown was due $2.7 million in base salary, and the new Rams regime deemed him unworthy of that price after he missed 7-of-28 field goal tries last season. Brown will resurface, but probably for something closer to the veteran's minimum.
