Stevie Brown visited with Texans

AP

Last week, there were a couple of reports about free agent safety Stevie Brown’s potential landing spots.

One had the Giants close to re-signing him while the other included them among a group of five teams that were interested in Brown’s services. The Texans weren’t one of those teams, but they may work their way into the mix.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Brown visited with the Texans on Tuesday.

Houston signed Rahim Moore as a free agent earlier this offseason and have D.J. Swearinger returning for his third season, which doesn’t provide Brown with a clear shot at a starting job. The Giants have fewer obstacles in Brown’s way, but if their offer isn’t where Brown wants it to be that might not be enough for them to close the deal.

Visiting with another team can be a good way to get the wheels moving, however, so Brown may still wind up back with the Giants.

  1. Stevie Brown was definitely a Giants favorite back in 2012 when he registered eight interceptions. Unfortunately he tore his ACL the following mini-camp.

    Good character but may have lost a step with his injury.

    Speaks volumes that the Giants haven’t locked him down yet considering the lack of depth at the safety position.
