EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Despite coming off one of the best years of his 12-year NFL career, Giants kicker Josh Brown is facing stiff competition from free agent Brandon McManus.
Brown says he's not surprised and that it's just part of the business of being a kicker. He connected on 23-of-26 field-goal tries (88 percent) and nailed all 31 of his PATs for 100 points last season.
Brown is confident his resume speaks for itself. He's connected on 254 field goals in a career that includes stops in Seattle, St. Louis and Cincinnati before joining the Giants. He's made 81 percent of his field goal tries over that span.
McManus is Temple's career leader in field goals and punting. He had a brief stint with the Indianapolis Colts in training camp last season.
