Stevie Brown likely out for year with torn ACL, Aaron Curry cut by Giants

The Giants likely lost a starting safety for the year against the Jets on Saturday night.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Sunday that safety Stevie Brown tore his ACL while returning one of Geno Smith’s three interceptions in the first half of the game. Brown was set to start next to Antrel Rolle and was coming off a strong 2012 season that featured eight interceptions and two forced fumbles.

With Brown out, the Giants will likely turn to Ryan Mundy as their starter. Mundy was signed as a free agent this offseason after playing all 64 games for the Steelers over the last four years. The Giants also have Tyler Sash and 2013 fifth-round pick Cooper Taylor at safety.

The Giants haven’t announced any cuts officially yet, but linebacker Aaron Curry took to Twitter with a message that made it sound like he’ll be looking for a new place of employment.

“We have to understand its a sport and a business, it is NOT an evaluation of personal worth,” Curry wrote.

Art Stapleton of the North Jersey Record confirms that the fourth overall pick of the 2009 draft has indeed been cut by the Giants.

    As bad as our LBs are, cutting Curry REALLY shows how little the Giants valued him SMH.

    i thought the gmen were a sleeper team earlier in the offseason. right now, i think they are a 5 win team. their personnel is borderline aweful outside of a couple positions

    Wow, this is the year of the preseason injury.

  4. shackdelrio says: Aug 25, 2013 4:29 PM

    Lets find every expert that rated Aaron Curry as the “safest pick” in the 2009 draft.

  5. 6thsense79 says: Aug 25, 2013 4:32 PM

    Curry was a high draft pick comming out of Wake. Many thought he was the safest pick in the draft now he’s bounced from team to team. Maybe he and May in need to hang it up.

  6. jobotjones says: Aug 25, 2013 4:32 PM

    I like Mundy he just isn’t a very good safety.

  7. cutlertomarshall says: Aug 25, 2013 4:34 PM

    almost as awful* as your spelling.

  8. Mr. Wright 212 says: Aug 25, 2013 4:37 PM

    Were an 11 win team, 9-10 now. This doesn’t change much, fool.

    Big blow to G-men already weak DB corps. Great ballhawk and INT return guy. Too bad we have to wait 4 weeks for Will Hill; he looks like a good replacement. Mundy weak-Sash horrible. K. Phillips may come back-good if healthy. Curry didn’t impress at any moment during OTA’s or camp. Complete bust. We will have only 5 LBs unless they pick up someone else. Worst LB corp in G-man history.

    I guess Aaron Curry really was a bust.

  11. gohawks89 says: Aug 25, 2013 4:42 PM

    i cant believe how far Aaron curry has fallen…
    when we drafted him i said to myself “this guy is gonna be the next LT” ….boy was i wrong…
    i keep hearing that he is not smart enough to pickup the complicated NFL defense
    what a waste….

  12. ninerswilldominatelikebefore says: Aug 25, 2013 4:43 PM

    hope curry saved alot of the cash he stole from the seadderall seagulls..

  13. skinsdiehard says: Aug 25, 2013 4:43 PM

    To “bigblue”, maybe Eli can play safety since he is your whole team. Without Eli, the G-women would go 0-16.

  14. malleng says: Aug 25, 2013 4:46 PM

    Whyyyy did they let Kenny Phillips go!!!?

  15. mylionsroaring says: Aug 25, 2013 4:47 PM

    Lions might be a landing spot if you can play like you were expected to when you came out on draft day

    I am starting to wonder why it would be worth the risk for any starter to play in the preseason. Yeah, if they get hurt they still get paid…but what about a player who is in a contract year? There is a lot of money on the line for a meaningless game…and yeah they could get hurt in the first regular season game, but playing in the preseason is just one more opportunity to get hurt…

  18. salscobrakai says: Aug 25, 2013 4:55 PM

    I’m far from a Giants fan, but any team with Eli as QB and Coughlin as head coach can at least get 8 wins. 9-7 might win the NFC East this year.

  19. bleedgreen says: Aug 25, 2013 4:56 PM

    Seems like Giants safeties can’t stay healthy in recent history. Kenny Phillips for years, Terrell Thomas, this guy.

  20. richiesaurus310 says: Aug 25, 2013 5:09 PM


    You do know that K. Phillips isn’t on your team right?

  21. metalman5150 says: Aug 25, 2013 5:10 PM

    If the goal of the preseason is to not lose players to injury, then the GIANTs lost on Saturday. Thanks F.

  22. nananatman says: Aug 25, 2013 5:16 PM

    11 win team? Where? Right now it looks like if added last years wins with this years we might make 11.

  23. seatownballers says: Aug 25, 2013 5:19 PM

    I cry weekly knowing that Seattle drafted Curry over clay mathews

  24. zack2482 says: Aug 25, 2013 5:39 PM

    Sorry to hear that. Get well soon. I hate these season ending injuries for any team.

  25. eyedocjay says: Aug 25, 2013 5:43 PM

    So both safeties out, no LBS, CBs sub par,JPP hurt, o-line in shambles…did I leave something out…wouldnt be surprised if coughin retires at halftime in Dallas…mr. Clowney, welcome to New York …just not sure if he’ll be in green or blue

  26. themackstrong says: Aug 25, 2013 5:55 PM

    Aaron Curry is a gifted athlete, just like guys like Vern Gholston they can wow you at the combine. His first game I could see he was lost and even though he moved fast, he played eith no edge basically soft. I am sure he has had excellent coaches along the way but I read an article where he talks about putting in no effort when drafted. All that good guy image went out the door for me. At least he got one of those fat rookie contracts because if the Raiders/ Giants who dont have a linebacker on their team cut you first that’s probably it for him.

  27. pooflingingmonkey says: Aug 25, 2013 5:57 PM

    The Giants are easily a 10 win team…

    … combined, over the next 5-6 seasons, I mean.

  28. cordellgc says: Aug 25, 2013 6:38 PM

    Keith Rivers is a bad football player, if A.Curry gets gets cut first that makes him a really bad player… #bust

  29. jetsmmt says: Aug 25, 2013 6:54 PM

    I’m waiting for Coughlin to get fined for sending a pre-season game into overtime.

  30. boyshole25 says: Aug 25, 2013 8:27 PM

    Rg3 just smiled and licked his chops

  31. bookofelisha10 says: Aug 25, 2013 10:08 PM

    Hey curry, if you couldn’t crack nyg team w the Terrible lb core we got you can’t make it anywhere. Bust.

  32. playbookofeli says: Aug 25, 2013 10:54 PM

    I like your cheap ripoff of my screen name

  33. bookofelisha10 says: Aug 26, 2013 1:07 AM

    Cheap ripoff? I’ve had this name for months now. You ever think maybe we had the same idea bec it’s not rly splitting atoms to come up w this name. And since I’ve never seen ur name on a nyg post I’d say u took it

  34. jimmylions says: Aug 26, 2013 11:31 PM

    A lot of us in Detroit wanted Mayhew to draft Curry instead of Stafford … I’m glad Mayhew is the GM and not me.
