The Giants continued to add depth to their secondary today with the signing of safety Stevie Brown, who is entering his third NFL season.
Brown is the second safety signed by the Giants this offseason, joining former Washington Redskin Chris Horton.
Brown, 5-11 and 215 pounds, entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft choice – 251st overall – by the Oakland Raiders in 2010. He was waived in the final cutdown and signed to the Raiders' practice squad. Two weeks into the season, Brown was added to the active roster. He played 15 games with one start and had 35 tackles (29 solo) and two passes defensed.
Last year, Oakland again waived Brown at the final cut. He was briefly with the Carolina Panthers before joining the Indianapolis Colts on Sept. 21. Brown played in eight games with the Colts and was credited with five defensive tackles. His season ended when he was placed on injured reserve with a quad injury on Nov. 29.
At Michigan, Brown played linebacker as a junior and safety as a senior. In his final season in 2009, he was a team captain and led the Wolverines with 80 tackles.
Brown was born on July 17, 1987.
