EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Giants today announced they have re-signed Pro Bowl kicker Aldrick Rosas, an exclusive rights free agent.
Rosas had a breakout season in 2018, his second with the Giants and in the NFL. He hit 32 of 33 field goal attempts (and 31 of 32 extra point tries), a franchise-record .970 percentage that was just 1/100th of a percentage point behind NFL leader Robbie Gould, a former Giant. Gould made 33 of 34 attempts (.971). Josh Brown held the previous Giants record since 2015, when he had a percentage of .938.
Rosas’ 127 points tied Ali Haji-Sheikh (1983) for the fifth-highest total in Giants history. Jay Feely holds the record with 148 points in 2005.
In addition, Rosas’ 32 field goals were the fifth-highest total in Giants history:
- 35 John Carney (2008)
- 35 Jay Feely (2005)
- 35 Ali Haji-Sheikh (1983)
- 33 Lawrence Tynes (2012)
- 32 Aldrick Rosas (2018)
Rosas made his final 19 field goal attempts, the second-longest streak in Giants history. Brown made 29 consecutive attempts spanning the 2014-15 seasons.
On Dec. 2, Rosas kicked the longest field goal in Giants history, a 57-yarder against Chicago in MetLife Stadium. Haji-Sheikh held the record for 35 years, with a pair of 56-yard field goals in 1983.
In his two seasons, Rosas has hit 50 of 58 field goal attempts, a percentage of .862 that is the second-highest in franchise history by kickers with a minimum of 50 tries. Brown holds the record of .917 (88 of 96 from 2013-16).
