Giants Sign Former NC State RB Andre Brown

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Giants have signed
running back Andre Brown, their fourth-round selection from North
Carolina State.

He is the sixth 2009 draft choice to sign with the Giants. Terms of the deal were not released.

The only unsigned draft picks are wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, the first-round selection from North Carolina, and second-round picks Clint Sintim and William Beatty.

Brown played in 44 games with 30 starts at N.C. State. He gained more than 2,500 yards and scored 22 touchdowns. He also caught 70 passes and had 341 yards on 17 kickoff returns.

To clear space on the roster for Brown, the Giants waived rookie Alex Derenthal, a free agent from Temple.
