The Giants announced they have released Aldrick Rosas, their placekicker each of the last three seasons. Rosas was a record-setting Pro Bowler in 2018 but struggled to match that success last season when he kicked 20 fewer field goals than he had the previous year.
In 48 games for the Giants, Rosas made 62 of 75 field goal attempts (82.7%) and 86 of 94 extra point tries (91.5%) for 272 points. He also had touchbacks on 127 of 211 kickoffs (60.2%).
In 2018, Rosas had one of the best seasons by a kicker in Giants history. He was selected to his first Pro Bowl and named second-team All-Pro after succeeding on 32 of 33 field goal attempts and 31 of 32 extra point tries and scoring 127 points. The 32 field goals were the fifth-highest total in Giants history.
On June 15, Rosas was involved in an auto accident near his northern California hometown and was subsequently charged with three misdemeanors.
