After an outstanding 2016 season, Wing struggled at times previous year.

Wing entered the National Football League in 2013 as an undrafted free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles and was ultimately waived by them ahead of that regular season getting underway.

Embattled Unai Emery still believes in PSG blueprint
The future of manager Unai Emery is increasingly precarious, especially when you consider that PSG failed to win Ligue 1 last season as Monaco took the French title.

Wing posted a net average of 38.8 yards during the 2014 regular season with the Steelers and while he was re-signed to a one-year contract in early 2015, he was beaten out for the punting job during the preseason by punter Jordan Berry and ultimately traded to the Giants. Short Wing punts in Philadelphia and Tampa Bay were among the plays that led to late Giants' losses. He also had his only two blocked punts of his career this past season. His gross average of 44.1 yards was tied for 24th in the league. Just like the rest of the team, Brad Wing regressed tremendously from his 2016 campaign in 2017.

The 27-year-old enjoyed a career season in 2016 with a franchise-best 40.9-yard net average, surpassing Jeff Feagles' 40.2-yard mark.

Wing had a strong 2016 season but struggled terribly a year ago, with short punts in the clutch against the Eagles and Buccaneers in Weeks 3 and 4, respectively, that contributed to losses that buried the team to an 0-5 start.

The Giant punt team was not their only struggle on special teams. He has placed 100 punts inside the 20.
