Brown re-signed with the Giants in April, getting a two-year, $4 million deal. The Giants got more than their money's worth from Brown's last two-year contract, especially in 2015 which was statistically Brown's best. He made 30 of 32 field goals for a career-high percentage of 93.8 -- best in Giants history among kickers with more than 11 attempts in a single season. His 92.3 percentage in 2014 ranks second on that list. Brown did, however, miss one extra point last year -- his first since 2010 and only the third of his 13-year career. And one of his two missed field goals last season came in overtime of the Giants' Week 13 game against the Jets. That miss snapped his franchise-record streak of 29 straight field goals made. It was also a rare miss for Brown, who has been one of the most reliable kickers in Giants history since he first signed in 2013. In three seasons, he's connected on 77 of his 84 field goal attempts. His 91.7 percent success rate trails only John Carney (92.1 percent in his one season, 2008) on the franchise list.
Josh Brown 2015 Outlook
As SBNation.com recently contended, Brown had arguably the best season of his 12-year NFL career in 2014. After beating back the challenge of Brandon McManus during training camp, Brown spent the season justifying the team’s decision. He went 24-of-26 on field-goal attempts. His 92.3 percent success rate was a career best, and the best percentage ever for a Giants kicker with more than 14 field-goal attempts. Brown went 4-of-4 on field-goal attempts longer than 50 yards. He is the first Giants’ placekicker to be perfect on four tries from 50 or more yards, and those four successful kicks set a single-season franchise record. Brown is 47-of-52 in two seasons with the Giants, a 90.4 percent success rate. That is the highest in franchise history for a kicker with more than 50 attempts. In the past three seasons, Brown has made 58-of-64 field-goal attempts (90.6 percent). With an increasingly potent offense at his side, Brown could provide great value this fall.
