          Sounds like a tweener that Reese loves. CB / S / OLB




          Maybe to try to fill the void Grant is leaving us.

            Colts ERFA S Stevie Brown has signed with the Giants, Adam Caplan reports. Brown was a backup defensive back and wound up seeing playing time on special teams for Indy last season. He ended the year on IR after suffering a leg injury.




            Yup, exactly the type of player Reese loves, lol.

              These are the signings you get with such little cap room. The market dictates to you, not the other way around.

                Versatile and young. Sounds like a character guy as well. Like the pickup from what I've read. Typical Reese move.

                "Despite all of the problems with the Wolverines program the last few years, Brown was like a beacon of light. Most elite prospects are more concerned about their potential draft stock, but Brown was the consummate team player, offering to assist the new coaching staff any way he could. They took him up on that offer and made him an undersized strong-side outside linebacker in his final season."

                  I actually noticed him while he played on the Colts the past couple years. He is a solid kid on STs, punt coverage is stout. It makes sense, we lost Devin Thomas.

                        One thing is certain, reese definitely does his homework..It seems like every time we make a small signing like this I find myself saying "hmmm, I wonder if he'll make an impact next this year" and then BAM! lol

                          after doing a lil bit of reading on him, something tells me this is a signing due to Vick, RG3, and ROmo being in the division. *Romo not as much.

                          He's used to playing down at the LOS bc of the time spent at LB, but has the speed/build/ability of a DB.
                          Maybe he could be a great spy on Vick/RG3...at minimal, should be a good ST player

                              I am Michigan Fan - Stevie Brown did not do crap at Michigan and will not make our team. That's why he has not stuck with anyone yet. He was almost always a day late and a dollar short.! He may be a nice guy but he won't help us win any games playing defense. No way will he fill in for Grant.
