EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants have agreed to terms keeping linebacker Jon Beason on the roster. A person familiar with the agreement told The Associated Press that the veteran entering his eighth NFL season will return to the Giants. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced. Beason was acquired from Carolina last October for a seventh-round pick after he lost his job. He played well for New York, which had been weak in the middle of its defence. The 29-year-old Beason was a first-round draft pick of the Panthers in 2007 and made the All-Pro team in 2008. New York also re-signed placekicker Josh Brown and safety Stevie Brown, and officially signed guard Geoff Schwartz, running back Rashad Jennings and centre J.D. Walton. New York also waived linebacker Marcus Dowtin on Wednesday. Josh Brown set a franchise record in 2013 by making 17 consecutive field goals in his first season with the Giants. He hit 23 of 26 field goal attempts, a percentage of 88.5 that is third highest in Giants history. Brown also made all 31 extra points for 100 points. At Philadelphia, Brown scored all of the Giants points in a 15-7 victory on field goals of 40, 44, 33, 46 and 27 yards. He was the first Giant to kick three field goals of 40 yards or longer in a game since 1991, when Matt Bahr did it. A 12-year veteran, Brown previously played for the Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams. Stevie Brown missed last season with a knee injury after a strong 2012 campaign. He tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in a preseason game against the Jets and underwent surgery two weeks later. In his first season with the Giants in 2012, Brown had 11 starts at strong safety and led the team and tied for second in the NFL with eight interceptions. Browns eight interceptions were the most by a Giant since Willie Williams had 10 in 1968 and his 307 interception return yards broke the former Giants single-season record of 251, set by Hall of Famer Emlen Tunnell in 1949 and matched by Dick Lynch in 1963. Brown twice intercepted two passes in a game. Stevie Brown played in 23 games with Oakland and Indianapolis before joining the Giants. The deals with Schwartz and Jennings address the Giants two biggest needs. Schwartz has played with Carolina, Minnesota and the Chiefs, and joins the Giants after they waived-injured centre David Baas, who missed most of last season with neck and knee injuries. With Chris Snee returning for an 11th season, Schwartz would fill the hole at left guard, and that would allow Kevin Boothe to play centre if he can be re-signed. Justin Pugh will be the right tackle and Will Beatty will return at left tackle, if he can get over the broken leg he sustained in the final game of the regular season. Walton could challenge Boothe for the centres job, and if he claimed it the Giants would have depth at guard, too. The running back situation was iffy because of the uncertainty involving former first-round pick David Wilson. He had surgery for a neck injury and his future is a question mark. Jennings rushed for 733 yards in 15 games with Oakland, and played well against the Giants, gaining 88 yards on 20 carries. nike vapormax Ελλαδα .C. - The housecleaning continues for the B. nike vapormax skroutz . - Dolphins safety Louis Delmas has been carted off the field with a right knee injury against the Ravens. http://www.vapormaxgreece.com/nike-vapormax-2019-greece.html .

"Last year we were in a ton of situations, late-game situations we couldnt pull out. Wed kind of fold under the pressure, get frustrated or let a big shot frustrate us," guard DeMar DeRozan said.Jermain Defoe has expressed his disappointment at being left out of Englands provisional Euro 2016 squad despite scoring the goals that steered Sunderland to Premier League safety. Defoe, who won the last of his 55 caps in 2013, had hoped his top-flight tally of 15 - bettered only by Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy and four overseas players - was enough to earn Roy Hodgsons vote. Obviously Ive not been involved with England for quite a while and Ive always thought that getting into an England squad before a tournament is based on merit, the 33-year-old told Sky Sports News. I just feel like Ive done everything that I could do. Jermain Defoe As a forward if you score goals then youve got a chance of going.Towards the end of the season I started thinking about it but before I wasnt. I was so focused on trying to help Sunderland stay in the Premier League.Its only when you see things in the papers and people start talking about it - just mentioning my name about maybe getting into the squad - then I started thinking about it. Who will make cut? Roy Hodgsons England dilemma So obviously, when youre not in the squad, its a disappointment.ddddddddddddDespite his omission, Defoe is proud of his achievements this season and has not given up on returning to the England fold at some point.Ive never retired and Ill never turn my back on England because I still believe I can score goals at that level, he said. Thats whats kept me going, and one of the reasons I came back from the MLS. Defoe (L) celebrates another Sunderland goal I just feel like Ive done everything that I could do. Im delighted that Sunderland stayed up and on a personal note, Im delighted with the amount of goals that Ive scored.Thats all I could do, really. Also See: Rashford called up Where does Rooney fit?
