The Lawrence Tynes era in New York is officially over. After years of service the Giants have opted to not bring back Tynes and have instead opted for Josh Brown to be their kicker of the future. Per Jenny Vrenta of Newark-Star Ledger, the Giants have signed kicker Josh Brown and are expected to make the announcement official later this morning.

Brown has been a journeyman in his NFL career, playing on four different rosters over the course of the last ten years. He started he career way back in 2003 with the Seattle Seahawks and spent the majority of his career there and in St. Louis kicking for the Rams. He tried out for the New York Jets during training camp a year ago before signing with the Bengals which was were he last kicked.

He’s proven to be one of the more consistent legs in the NFL over his career, as you don’t stick around as long has he has unless you’ve got the accuracy to back things up. The Giants would have liked to bring Tynes back but opted for a cheaper deal with Brown, and it’s widely believed that Tynes will end up with the 49ers when all the free agent dust settles.
