The New York Giants have a few pressing free agent decisions to make this offseason, though one that should be relatively easy is the return of kicker, Josh Brown.

Brown, who didn’t miss an extra point and went 23 of 26 on field goals is likely to be brought back, this according to NJ.com:

Brown did exactly what the Giants brought him in to do this season. He hit a high percentage of his kicks and did a much better job on kickoffs than Lawrence Tynes. It makes sense to bring Brown back for another season rather than try a new kicker while attempting to rebuild the rest of the special teams.

Despite attempting to re-tool their special teams, there’s little reason not to bring Brown back considering his relatively solid history and the lack of quality free agent kickers available.

In addition to the solid offensive numbers, Brown also had one of the better hang times on his kickoffs during the season, which ranked the Giants 8th in the league in kickoff return defense.
