Josh Brown K NYG 2 Days
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.

The Newark Star-Ledger expects the Giants to be interested in re-signing K Josh Brown.
Brown signed a one-year deal with the Giants and had arguably the best season of his career, drilling 23-of-26 field goals and all 31 extra points. He also produced 35 touchbacks on kickoffs. Brown, 35 in April, will likely secure another one-year deal from the G-Men.

Giants signed K Josh Brown.
The G-Men are moving on from free agent Lawrence Tynes after he missed two field goals from 30-39 yards out over the final four weeks last season. Brown is 65-of-74 from that distance in his career and showed well in a four-game stint with the Bengals last year.

The Cincinnati Enquirer says "you would have to give the edge" to Josh Brown being re-signed by the Bengals, rather than Mike Nugent.
Brown was signed by the Bengals prior to Week 14 when Nugent went on injured reserve with a calf injury. Brown then went on to make 13-of-14 field goals, including the game-winning 43-yard boot in Week 16 over the Steelers to clinch a playoff spot. Both kickers are free agents.

The Bengals are believed to be interested in re-signing free agent K Josh Brown.
Brown says he wants to kick for a "contender," and fancies the Bengals fitting that bill with back-to-back playoff appearances. Brown's return would obviously mean Bengals 2012 franchise player Mike Nugent moving on.

Bengals special teams coach Darrin Simmons says his Week 16 kicker will come down to a game-time decision between Josh Brown and Mike Nugent.
Brown has kicked well, so there's no reason to rush Nugent back before his calf is 100 percent. The best bet for fantasy leaguers is to avoid the situation altogether this week.

Bengals signed K Josh Brown.
Mike Nugent will be inactive Sunday due to a calf injury. Brown won the short-term gig by beating out Neil Rackers and Billy Cundiff at a Tuesday workout. The long-time Seahawks and Rams kicker went 21-of-28 for St. Louis last season.

Cardinals had free agent kicker Josh Brown in for a visit earlier this week.
After going 7-for-7 on field goals in the season's first four games, Arizona kicker Jay Feely has been a bit erratic in the past three weeks. Feely has hit just 4-of-7 in the past three weeks, but he did nail a 61-yard kick in that span. Brown spent the preseason with the Jets after he was released by the Rams following 2011.
