    He was downright bad in textbook coverage. The opportunity cost being that he gambled and it payed off. Might not see 7 more interceptions for the rest of his career.
    The OP's question is a good one.

    I agree with you on this. It's a real close call as to which I'd rather have because: (a) there's no guarantee that any draft pick will pan out, but a second round pick would be nice; and (b) I think that Brown was a serviceable player for us, but is being overrated just because of the sheer number of INT's that he had.

      If we keep KP, then id rather have a second rounder. How many times have we had a young safety play well, then totally stink it up and eventually get released. I like Brown dont get me wrong, but his value right now is not a second rounder IMO, so if someone wants to give that up for him, I say sure.

        Now if only we could cut Rolle and use the 5.25M (out of 9.25M total) that gets freed to make some noise...
        I still dont wanna cut Rolle. Not sure why everyone is hating on him so much. The whole defense looked bad last year, secondary especially. But a lack of pass rush can seriously effect the secondary. Last year we had neither.

        Rolle is a player, letting him go will be a mistake.

          As a first year starter Brown was a stud. He blew quite a few coverages but as the season went on he got better at that. Ball skills are really hard to find.

          Apart from the ravens game he tackled well all season too.

            I think we have to keep Stevie Brown simply because of his playmaking skills, one more thing is that I don't think Brown made any more mistakes in the secondary than anybody else back there because there were enough blown coverages by all of them to go around

                If we got a second round pick for Stevie, I would tip my hat to Reese. Very savvy, and Patriot-esque.

                    I'm a Michigan man so I was familiar with Brown and was less than hopeful when we signed him. He showed me little to nothing in college. I think I even went as far as saying he wouldn't make the 53. But I was dead wrong. He displayed the skills I was looking for in college. A 2nd round pick would be nice compensation but I believe I'd rather keep him.

                        He was last year. Next year is a whole new one, who knows what we see; Stevie Brown of 2012-2013, or STs player of 2010-2012.

                        Stevie, or the pick, they're both gambles.

                          I'd prefer Stevie but i'll not be mad if we get a 2nd round pick for him.

                            I'd perfer to keep the kid......but I'm not going to cry about getting a second round pick.
                            I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

                              Either way its a good deal for the Giants turning a guy drafted in the 7th round that has been cut 3 times into a 2nd round pick is a huge value increase. I also don't think that there any teams out there that would be willing to give up a 2 for him. It will be interesting to see what he is tendered as.

                                He's not worth 9 million. He'd get a decent 4-5 million elsewhere, but I don't want to deal with Rolle's massive salary anymore...
