Josh Brown K NYG 9 Months
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.

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.

Jets STs coach Mike Westhoff calls the kicking competition between Josh Brown and Nick Folk the "most efficient, competitive battle I've ever seen."
Spoken like a true Jets coach. "I've had some great kickers in my career, but no one's had a better camp than these two guys." Kicker could hold value on a Jets team that will settle for plenty of field goals, but neither player is worth a draft pick before the competition is over. Brown has the more accurate leg, and is likely the favorite.

The Jets have reportedly signed K Josh Brown, formerly of the Rams.
Brown will apparently battle holdover Nick Folk for kicking duties this summer. Although Brown has been slightly more consistent than Folk of the past three years, he hasn't battle the elements on a regular basis since signing with the Rams in 2008.

Rams informed K Josh Brown of his release.
They're moving forward with rookie Greg Zuerlein. Brown was due $2.7 million in base salary, and the new Rams regime deemed him unworthy of that price after he missed 7-of-28 field goal tries last season. Brown will resurface, but probably for something closer to the veteran's minimum.
