Stevie Brown Says He Will Make Decision Soon: According to ESPN, New York Giants unrestricted free agent safety Stevie Brown has received contract offers from five or six NFL teams and will make a decision soon as to which team to sign with. The teams reportedly include the Giants, Cowboys, Falcons, Raiders, and Titans.
“A person with knowledge of the negotiations” told NJ.com that the Giants are considered one of the favorites to sign Brown. NJ.com reports that there has been a standing offer on the table for Brown from the Giants for quite some time, but Brown has been looking for a better deal.
Brown played in all 16 regular-season games for the Giants in 2014. He started the first three games of the season, lost his starting job for eight weeks to Quintin Demps, then regained it for the last five weeks of the season. Brown finished with 38 tackles, one sack, and one pass defense.
Brown was originally drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the 7th round of the 2010 NFL Draft. The Raiders released him in September 2011 and he then spent time with the Panthers and Colts. The Giants signed him in April 2012. Brown had a tremendous season in 2012, intercepting more passes in a single season by a Giant in 44 years. He was placed on Injured Reserve in August 2013 after tearing the ACL in his left knee in the preseason.
The only true safeties currently on the Giants roster are Nat Berhe, Cooper Taylor, and Thomas Gordon. The Giants may also shift cornerbacks Josh Gordy, Chykie Brown, and Bennett Jackson to safety.
NYG safety Stevie Brown mulling 5-6 offers, expected to make decision soon, per source. Interested teams include NYG, DAL, ATL, OAK, TN.
