Giants Re-Sign Kicker Brad Daluiso
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) _ New York Giants place-kicker Brad Daluiso signed a new contract with the team Thursday.
Terms of the deal weren’t announced. Daluiso, an eight-year veteran, was scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent on Feb. 13.
Daluiso, 30, is in his fourth season as the Giants’ full-time place-kicker after three seasons as a kickoff specialist with five NFL teams.
His career field goal percentage with the Giants is 77.2 (78 of 101), the best in team history. Daluiso is eighth on the Giants career scoring list with 316 points _ 78 field goals and 82 extra points.
Daluiso finished the 1997 regular season 22-of-32 in field goal attempts, after going 9-for-9 in the preseason.
Daluiso’s five field goals in the 23-22 NFC playoff loss to the Minnesota Vikings tied an NFL postseason record. He set a playoff record with four field goals in the first half of the Dec. 27 game.
He joined the Giants as a free agent after the Denver Broncos released him in 1993. He was initially signed by the Green Bay Packers out of UCLA in 1991, and has played for the Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys.
