there goes any chance of him competing for come carries.. so now we have AB, Scott, and Ware. Unless we sign a vet we are def drafting a RB in the 1st 4 rounds.

He's not even guaranteed to be on the roster next season. There's more of a chance he may be cut.

Da'Rel Scott for the win!

Well, that's just dandy. OK, Da'Rel, you're moving up the depth chart.

he could appeal if the drugs were taken as a rehabilitation process. steroids are used as well as HGH for a lot of physical injuries. remember he had that achilles injury

dont doubt the news and highly doubt it gets overturned, just reminding everyone about that

He looked good coming out of college .Ran between the tackles, could get the corner catch the football. He blew out his Achilles never looked the same. Probably getting frustrated with that. He isnt practice squad eligible he knew he had to make the team to keep in the NFL this year

actually Brown is faster now than he was before his injury, the coaches said it last year. He was doing well in camp last year too, all the coaches were raving about him. The injury definitely set him back though

I technically take "performance enhancing drugs" & I get them at GNC.....there's a few popular suplements that are banned that literally only give you better focus & energy in the gym....I wouldn't hold it against the guy too much

No it doesn't, but keep trying to convince yourself it does Let's see: AB = "peanut brittle feet", Ware = O, DS = Promise, Brown ???, OL= In transition. Not very comforting.

Jacobs = no acceleration and taken down easily. Whats your point? No running back is perfect. Have to make due with what we still have. Not ***** about who leaves

My point is there is a lack of stability at the rb position, post BJ leaving. If you don't agree that's your perogative..

Still, not a single NFLteam thought that he was worth having on their 53 man roster.</P>


I would have been shocked if he made the team this year.</P>

People are acting like he's done. Realistically, he could just miss 4 games.

Then again, he would REALLY have to impress in camp to warrant that kind of treatment.

Now's the time, Andre. . .your future depends on the next few months.

Enough with the 500K bs. They were 500K apart on his salary for next season, but he wanted a multi-year deal vs. the 1 year incentive laiden deal the giants were offering. Huge difference.

I say cut Brown. The Giants rarely have players that get in trouble with this stuff. Sends a clear message that this organization doesn't tolerate it.

They can cut Brown, and not lose a step. I do like Brown and think he can be a nice contributor for us, but I won't lose sleep over his release (if he gets released).

So he is further along than the rest of them... already in mid-season form.

I totally hold it against him.....</P>


they have a list of stuff to saty away from and that list is prob updated on a reg basis. If a player gets caught they are either misinformed or stupid. In this I case I choose the latter. He made a poor choice.</P>

Well in baseball at least you always hear about steroids speeding up the recovery process from an injury. For a guy who is certainly at risk of not making it in the NFL due to his injury history there'a really strong incentive to take a chance on using PEDs and hope you don't get caught.

Why so many people getting on him so hard. The guy has talent but people talk about him like he's a scrub who should be cut. Give the guy a chance. If the team does decide to keep him, just remember 4 games goes by quick.

AB "peanut brittle toes" is 1 cut away from breaking his foot again, just had a second procedure on his foot and will miss mini-camp and who knows what else in the off season. Ware is a zero, DS has potential, and AB is ???. Anyway, I'm entitled to my opinion, and you yours.
