Brown is to go to guy now. Everyone knows he's powerful and speedy, Runs good routes and pass protection is there. Injury prone is his downfall. But he's coming around as in the game very productive. TC will not part ways with him, knowing the future is Wilson who can't pass block well yet. Brown, is also a soldier on and off the field and knows his effort is what got him on the field, not raw talent but taught talent and toughness
The way RB's are valued, a tender will be in order. No brainer, unless AB is willing to accept a very Giant friendly deal. And as far as the safety spot is concerned, we know Brown cuts it. I'd prefer giving Brown a "fair", performance ladened deal instead of playing: " Lets make a deal"; and send rolle packing. I've watched him talk well and play poor long enough. It makes sense all around the cookie! Go Giants
If Brown's leg heals up, and if he can stay healthy, he's a really solid RB. Unfortunately, those are two big "ifs". So tendering him makes sense.....I'd imagine it would be for at worst a 3rd round pick. If they tender him as a 4th, someone else will likely make a run at him.
As far as injuries go, his bone break is the best kind of injury to comeback from. Soft tissue tears are usually the harder things to come back from. Whether or not he gets injured again, no one can tell. Unless you think he is jinxed, he has no more more likelihood of new injury as the next guy. I'd like to keep him. Even if we got a stud 2nd round RB, it wouldn't help us this coming season. TC wouldn't play the guy anyway.
