Stevie Brown: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Brown tore his ACL this past preseason, but the report suggests that he is ahead of schedule with his recovery at this stage. Once he re-proves his health, look for Brown to compete for safety reps with Will Hill, who emerged in Brown's absence in 2013.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The news is disappointing for the Giants, but certainly not surprising. The team now has major questions at safety, with Brown done for the year and top backup Will Hill suspended for the first four games. Ryan Mundy, who was signed away from Pittsburgh in the offseason, appears to be the next man up.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A journeyman backup since entering the league in 2010, Brown went from the bottom of the roster to center stage with the Giants once injuries piled up in the secondary. Despite starting only 11 games, Brown finished the 2012 season with 66 tackles (56 solo) and eight interceptions. Brown's playmaking didn't stop at that, though, as he also posted two forced fumbles and fumble recoveries. The Giants let former first-round pick Kenny Phillips walk in free agency, leaving Brown in position to take on a season-long starting role in 2013. While it would be unfair to expect another eight-interception season out of Brown, his 2012 box score compels one to set high expectations for him in 2013.
Will vie to make the team as a reserve safety.
Brown is a versatile player who will likely see most of his action on special teams.
