RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Coming back from a torn ACL, Brown has upside as a ball-hawking starting free safety.
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.
