New York Giants: Rashad Jennings vs. Andre Brown
Brown, 27, went on to sign with the Houston Texans, officially ending his two-year stint with the Giants. Brown’s time in New York was marred by a few serious injuries, which interrupted his solid play on the field.
In 2012, Brown stepped in for an injured Ahmad Bradshaw. Brown played in 10 games before breaking his leg, compiling 385 rush yards, averaging 5.3 yards per rush and racking up eight touchdowns.
It was a similar story in 2013. Brown broke his leg once again, this time in the preseason. He returned to the gridiron for the second half of the season and rushed for 492 yards. Brown eclipsed 100 rush yards in two out of his first three games back. However, he slowed down from there, rushing for just 68 total yards in the last three games of the season.
Jennings, who is 29, had the best year of his career in 2013. He rushed for 733 yards and had six touchdowns, as he replaced Darren McFadden in Oakland’s backfield. Jennings also averaged 4.5 yards per rush.
Prior to 2013, Jennings spent three years in Jacksonville, where he only carried the ball more than 100 times in a season once. His most effective season came in 2010, when he rushed for 459 yards and scored four touchdowns.
With David Wilson‘s health a bit of question mark heading into 2014, the Giants seemed like they didn’t want to place their faith in the injury-prone Brown. Brown gave New York everything he had when he was on the field but he became a bit too much of a liability after two seasons that were corrupted by injuries.
Jennings ushers in a new era in New York’s backfield accompanied by new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo. It will be interesting to see how the new-look Giants fare in the much-anticipated 2014 season.
