Description: Dallas reports the Cowboys have signed Brown.
Insight: Incumbent kicker David Beuhler may have outperform Brown in practice the rest of the week to keep his kicking duties in Week 17 against Philadelphia. Brown looks at least likely to stick around through the offseason and provide Buehler with competition next season. (

Description: The Chargers waived K Kris Brown.
Insight: Brown was signed to hold down the kicking duties while Nate Kaeding was recovering from a groin injury. He filled in quite admirably, nailing all eight extra point attempts and going 4-of-5 on field goal attempts. (

Description: Despite being listed as questionable this week because of an ankle problem, Brown will be San Diego's kicker for the second straight game.
Insight: Brown is decent, and the Chargers lead the league in offensive yards while ranking just seventh in points. He's a solid -- though unspectacular -- fantasy option ... as if there are spectacular kickers. (

Description: The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Kris Brown is expected to handle kicking duties for at least another week.
Insight: Nate Kaeding is admittedly concerned about his groin injury. Brown was serviceable on Sunday, making 2 of 3 field goals and missing a 50-yarder to tie the game at the end of regulation. (

Description: NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports via Twitter that the Chargers have signed K Kris Brown.

Description: The New Orleans Times Picayune reports the Saints will host Brown for a tryout on Tuesday.
Insight: Former Saints' kicker John Carney will also be there on Tuesday. Brown was beaten out by Neil Rackers for the Texans' kicking job late in the preseason. (

Description: After losing the kicking battle to Neil Rackers, Brown has been placed on injured reserve. He and the team are expected to reach an injury settlement shortly, which will allow him to become a free agent.
Insight: Brown and Rackers reportedly stayed pretty even throughout the competition, so Brown's 2009 struggles had to factor in. There's also the plantar fasciitis in his right foot, but as long as that heals or isn't too bad, Brown seems likely to get a chance elsewhere this season. (

Description: Despite Neil Racker's presence, Brown believes he is still the starting kicker.
Insight: The level of competition isn't going to help me make a kick," Brown said about the Texans signing an established veteran in Rackers. "It doesn't matter who the competition is or what they've done or where they come from. At the end of the day, it boils down to me taking advantage of the opportunity every single day to prove that I can be the guy that can help this organization get to where it wants to go."

Description: Brown missed two field goals and added four extra points on Sunday against the Patriots.
Insight: Brown also missed an extra point as he had a bad game all around. He missed a total of eleven field goals this season and his job may not be safe for next season. (
12/28/2009 10:08:00 PM
Description: Brown hit two field goals and three extra points on Sunday against the Dolphins.
Insight: Brown now has seven field goals over his past three games as the Texans' offense has been moving the ball very well as of late. (

Description: Brown hit 3-of-4 field goals and added one extra point against the Rams on Sunday.
Insight: Brown has missed three field goals over his past two games but has recorded double digit points over his past two games. (

Description: Brown hit two-of-four field goals and made four extra points against Seattle on Sunday.
Insight: Brown had a 26-yarder blocked and missed a 48-yarder in the victory. He has now missed four field goals in his last five games and could be in danger of losing his job. (

Description: Brown made 29 of his 33 field goal attempts and hit 8-of-10 in 40-yard kicks.
Insight: Many people are expecting the Texan offense to be very strong. If that is so, Brown will make for a nice fantasy kicker. (
