The New York Giants will sign kicker Josh Brown, according to a tweet from Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger. Brown ended the 2012 season with the Cincinnati Bengals, but was a training camp cut by the New York Jets earlier in the year.
The Giants moved to replace kicker Lawrence Tynes, who was assumed to be leaving town in free agency. Brown has a career field goal percentage of 81.3%, which is nearly identical to Tynes' 81.5%. Brown did make 11 of his 12 attempts with the Bengals in four games at the end of this past season.
