Browns is expected to re-sign with the Giants on a two-year, $4 million deal, the New York Daily News reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Brown is fresh off the best statistical season of his 13-year career, as he converted 30-of-32 field goal attempts for the Giants last year. Although he'll turn 37 years old soon, Brown has shown little signs of aging and should provide a reliable weapon in New York's kicking game for the next couple campaigns.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Giants are bringing in Chris Boswell to handle kicking for the final preseason game Thursday, but even though he and Brown were in competition earlier in training camp, Brown is still expected to maintain his spot atop the depth chart when the season begins Sept. 13 in Dallas.

Brown made three of four field-goal attempts and connected on all four extra-point tries in Sunday's 37-27 win over the Rams.

Brown connected on field goals of 29, 37 and 52 yards en route to one of his best games of the season. However, he has scored in double figures just four times all year, making him a lackluster fantasy option for Week 17.

Brown hit all three of his field goal attempts Sunday against the Falcons.

Brown has seen an increased workload over the last three games with the Giants increasing their offensive output. He has gone 7-for-7 over that time span after not attempting a field goal in either of the first two contests. With the Eagles on tap in Week 6, Brown could be in line for work similar to the past three weeks.

Josh Brown connected on all three of his field-goal attempt Sunday.

He would have had a fourth attempt but for a botched snap. With the Giants offense finding a rhythm, Brown could prove to be a useful kicker yet.

Brown converted two extra points in Week 1's loss to the Lions.

Brown, who did not attempt a field goal in the contest, will no doubt have better days from a fantasy perspective, but his prospects in that regard are clearly tied to the Giants' offense perking up in the coming weeks.

Brown's teammate, Brandon McManus, was waived by the Giants on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.

With McManus no longer in the mix, Brown is now the only kicker on the Giants' roster and he'll reprise his role as the team's placekicker on the heels of a 2013 season in which he recorded a modest total of 100 points. For Brown to find himself back on the fantasy radar and merit attention as an in-season pickup, however, the Giants' offense will need to rebound this season.

The Giants are expected to re-sign free agent K Josh Brown Tuesday.

Brown went a shiny 23-of-26 on field goals last season, including one bomb from 52 yards out and a 7-of-8 mark from 40-49 yards away. He was only an unreliable fantasy option because those 26 attempts ranked 26th in the league.
