Giants resign Josh Brown to two-year deal

New York's placekicker will be under contract until the end of the 2017 season.

Another crucial puzzle piece has been filled for the New York Giants as placekicker Josh Brown has signed a two-year deal with Big Blue.

  The deal is said to be worth $4 million over its tenure with $1 million guaranteed for the 37-year-old veteran. In comments released by the team, Brown was waiting for this deal for some time.

            “This is right where I wanted to be, this is the team I wanted to continue to play for,” Brown said.

            The Giants may not have used the franchise tag on Brown, but signing him to a two-year deal shows how much he means to this team. He was as reliable as they come last season plugging 30 of 32 field goals, and missing only one extra point out of 45 attempts.

            What took the Giants so long to make this highly important contract extension is a question for another day, but Brown doesn’t seem to matter as long as he is wearing his No. 3 on the back of that blue jersey.

            “I love the organization, and would enjoy playing here for the duration until I’m done,” Brown said.
