EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Giants safety Stevie Brown has been added to the Pro Bowl ballot, a team official told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Brown has started the team's past nine games and is second in the NFL in interceptions, with seven. He had two interceptions and a forced fumble in the Giants' 52-27 win over the Saints on Sunday.

The Giants signed Brown in April to add depth in their secondary. He was inserted in the starting lineup when Kenny Phillips went down with a knee injury, and has thrived in that role.

Brown, 25, was drafted in the seventh round by the Raiders in 2010 out of Michigan. He had 30 tackles in 15 games with Oakland his rookie year. He was with the Colts last season, playing in eight games and recording five tackles.
