Aldrick Rosas (born December 30, 1994) is an American football placekicker who currently plays for the New York Giants of the National Football League (NFL).[1] He was selected to the Pro Bowl for the 2018 NFL season.

College career Edit

Rosas played college football at Southern Oregon University.[2] In 2014, he tore the ACL in his kicking leg making a tackle in the NAIA Championship Game. After missing the 2015 season, he decided to forego the remainder of college eligibility to pursue a career in the NFL.[3]

Professional careerEdit

Tennessee TitansEdit

Following the conclusion of the 2016 NFL Draft, Rosas signed with the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent on May 9, 2016.[4] On September 2, 2016, Rosas was waived by the Titans.[5]

New York GiantsEdit

On January 19, 2017, Rosas signed a reserve/future contract with the New York Giants.[6] Rosas was the only kicker on the Giants roster after former Giants' placekicker Robbie Gould agreed to a two-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers,[7] until veteran Mike Nugent signed a contract with the team on August 1, 2017.[8] Rosas ultimately won the starting kicker job after Nugent was released during final roster cuts.

On September 10, 2017, in the Giants' season-opening 19–3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Rosas converted his first NFL career field goal, which was a 25-yard attempt, in the third quarter.[9] Prior to the game, he watched his girlfriend give birth via FaceTime.[10]

Rosas finished the season with a 72% field goal conversion rate (31st in the league) and an 87% PAT conversion rate (last in the league).[11]

Rosas retained his starting job with the Giants for the 2018 season. He improved on his previous season, becoming a Pro Bowl selection, converting 32 of 33 field goal attempts and 31 of 32 PATs, with his only missed PAT was due to a poor snap. He was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his Week 13 performance against the Chicago Bears where he converted three field goals, including a New York Giants franchise record 57-yarder and the game-winning 44-yard field goal in overtime.[12]

On December 18, 2018, Rosas was named to his first Pro Bowl,[13] and on January 4, 2019, Rosas was named a Second Team All-Pro for 2018.

The Giants re-signed Rosas as an exclusive-rights free agent on March 7, 2019.[14]
