Each day until Feb. 2, the final day of the 2013 NFL season, we're going to break down a Giants free agent. We'll analyze his season, his future and the odds of him re-signing with the team this offseason. Josh Brown Position: Kicker 2013 Stats: 23 of 26 on field goals; 31 of 31 on extra points '13 Salary: 1 year, $1.01 million For all the Giants' special teams problems this past season, their kicker wasn’t part of them. Josh Brown was the least of special teams coordinator Tom Quinn’s worries. Brown, an impending free agent after being signed by the Giants last offseason, hit 23 of 26 field-goal attempts (88.5 percent). He missed in Weeks 3 and 4, and didn’t miss again until a 50-yarder in a driving rainstorm in Week 17. In between, Brown made an impressive 17 straight, including a 45-yarder in overtime to beat the Lions in Week 16. Brown also drilled a season-long 52-yard kick in that game. For the Giants this season, sometimes even the simplest things (like snaps to the punter or screen passes) went awry. So it's a semi-accomplishment that Brown and the kicking unit made all 31 of their extra-point attempts.
Josh Brown kicks his way into Giants plans?
