The New York Giants are set at kicker and punter, but they will need to improve their return game, which lacked explosiveness last season.
Josh Brown will be the starting kicker for the New York Giants for the next two years after signing a new contract.
Brown earned his contract since he made 88.5 percent of his field goal attempts. However, he does not have much power since he made only two field goals from 50 yards or above.
The Giants are also set at punter with reliable veteran Steve Weatherford returning. Weatherford finished with a 46.9 punting average, and his longest punt came from 68 yards.
Brown and Weatherford are both consistent forces on special teams, but the Giants’ return game is a question mark.
However, they brought in speedster Trindon Holliday to add a spark to the return game. Holliday should improve the Giants’ field position after they finished 26th in punt returns and 27th in kick returns.
Safety Quintin Demps will also battle for reps at kick and punt returns. Demps averaged 30.2 yards on his kickoff returns with the Chiefs last season.
Whoever receives the majority of return reps, the Giants will almost certainly have a more explosive return game and give their offense better field position.
