New York Giants’ safety Stevie Brown missed all of 2013 with a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered during the preseason, but the team re-signed him this week to a one-year deal worth $4 million according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The safety will be 27 years-old when the 2014 regular season starts and will look to continue where he left off before going down with the ACL injury. Brown had a career year with the Giants in 2012 with 307 return yards on eight interceptions and two recovered fumbles in 16 games.
In September, Jenny Vrentas of SI.com posted a detailed account of Brown’s surgery which was performed by the renowned Dr. James Andrews. It was reported in January that Brown’s recovery was ahead of schedule and he is expected to be at full strength for 2014.
Brown recently expressed his excitement to return with the team via Twitter:
put the ink to the paper happy to say I'll b in NY for the 2014 seasons, thanks to my man @blakebaratz gettin the deal done #Giants

With the signing, the Giants continue to bolster their secondary for the upcoming season. According to the team’s official site, the G-Men also added safety and return man Quintin Demps and former Seahawks CB Walter Thurmond this week, as well as CB Trumaine McBride as previously reported on SportsInjuryAlert.com.
