LONDON - OCTOBER 28: Kicker, Lawrence Tynes #9 of the Giants is congratulated by holder, Jeff Feagles #18 after kicking an extra point during the NFL Bridgestone International Series match between New York Giants and Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium on October 28, 2007 in London, England.

It looks like Lawrence Tynes won't be kicking any more heart-clutching field goals for the New York Giants in the future. The veteran kicker — who who will always be remembered by Big Blue fans for a couple of dramatic overtime kicks that took the Giants to two Super Bowls — is not going to be re-signed by the team, according to a report in NJ.com. Jenny Vrentas wrote: Another veteran kicker, Josh Brown, is signing with the Giants Wednesday morning, according to two people with knowledge of the move.  These people requested anonymity because the Giants have not yet announced the signing. The 34-year-old Tynes just ended a 5-year, $7 million contract with the Giants and the team was waiting for feelers on what the kicker's going rate was as an unrestricted free agent.  The team didn't want to sign him to a big contract.  He made 33-of-39 field goals (84.6%) last season. Brown was brought in for a visit and a physical last night after the Giants signed former Cowboys kicker David Buehler as insurance last month. Brown, 33, was a replacement kicker for the Bengals and was named special teams player of the month when he filled in for the injured Mike Nugent last December.  He began his career with the Seattle Seahawks in 2004 and also played for the St. Louis Rams.  Brown tried out with the Jets last summer but was beaten out by Nick Folk. Tynes — who started with the Giants in 2007 — will always have a place in Giants fans' hearts.  He is most famous for his two game-winning overtime field goals in the 2007 and 2011 NFC Championship Games. The first 47-yarder came in the freezing cold of Lambeau Field against the Packers. The second clutch kick was a 31-yarder in the mud of Candlestick Park against the 49ers. They both led to Super Bowl titles. For some reason, the release of Tynes is one more sign of the end of an Giants era.
