Giants re-sign Pro Bowl kicker Aldrick Rosas
It looks like Aldrick Rosas will be a part of the New York Giants franchise for a little while longer, as the news has come out about his re-signing.
#Giants announce they have officially re-signed Pro Bowl kicker Aldrick Rosas, who was an exclusive rights free agent.
He wasn't going anywhere.
C Jon Halapio, also ERFA, and he'll be back with NYG as well. Depending on his rehab, which is going well, Halapio projected starter.

Rosas’s return to the team is something that is, frankly, not surprising, especially when you consider the official statement made on the Giants’ website about the move. Rosas, who is a former Pro Bowler, was an exclusive free rights agent before he signed the deal.
And perhaps his record speaks for itself, as well — he had 32 of 33 field goal attempts (and 31 of 32 extra point attempts), a franchise-record .970 percentage that was just 1/100th of a percentage point behind NFL leader Robbie Gould, a former Giant.
Of the deal, the Giants’ brass said that they looked forward to continuing to help Rosas develop in his position. He also was acknowledged as a history-making record-breaker.
“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).”
If Rosas is already making history in his first seasons with the team, imagine what he can do in the future! This is definitely good news for both New York and Rosas himself, and certainly, we can expect more success like this in the future.
