If another team had signed Brown to an offer sheet, the Giants would have had the opportunity to match the deal. If they chose not to, they would have received a second round pick from the team in compensation. Brown appeared in all 16 games, with 11 starts, for New York last season. Brown racked up 76 tackles, two forced fumbles and eight interceptions for the Giants last season. His eight picks were tied with Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks for second most in the league with only Tim Jennings of the Chicago Bears having more with nine.' var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
