The New Orleans Saints will bring in veteran kicker Kris Brown for a tryout Tuesday, along with veteran John Carney, according to a league source.
Brown, 33, was released by the Houston Texans earlier this month after spending eight seasons with the Texans -- the entire franchise's history. He also began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1999-2001. He has made 252 of 326 field goals in his career (77 percent). He was 21 of 32 last season for the lowest percentage of his career (65.6).
Brown made 4 of 5 field-goal attempts during the preseason, missing only a 56-yard attempt, before losing out to fellow veteran Neil Rackers in a hotly-contested preseason battle. Reportedly, Rackers won the job because of his better leg strength on kickoffs, which wouldn't be an issue in New Orleans since punter Thomas Morstead can kick off.
