Aldrick Rosas (born December 30, 1994) is an American football placekicker who is currently a free agent. He was selected to the Pro Bowl for the 2018 season as a member of the New York Giants.

College career[edit]

Rosas who is of Mexican–American descent, played college football at Southern Oregon University of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).[1] 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.[2]

Tennessee Titans[edit]

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 Giants[edit]

2017 season[edit]

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, 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]

2018 season[edit]

Rosas retained his starting job with the Giants for the 2018 season. He vastly improved on his rookie season, becoming a Pro Bowl selection, converting 32 of 33 field goal attempts and 31 of 32 PATs, with his only missed PAT 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.

2019 season[edit]

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

The Giants placed a second-round tender on Rosas on March 16, 2020,[15] and signed it on April 8, 2020.[16] On July 15, 2020, Rosas was formally charged with three misdemeanors in the Superior Court of California for an alleged high-speed hit-and-run that led to his arrest on June 16.[17] Rosas was released by the Giants on July 27, 2020.[18] He pleaded no contest to the charges on September 23, 2020, and was sentenced to three years of probation.[19]

Jacksonville Jaguars[edit]

On September 28, 2020, Rosas was signed to the Jacksonville Jaguars' practice squad.[20] He was elevated to the active roster on October 3 for the team's week 4 game against the Cincinnati Bengals,[21] and made four field goals in his first game as a Jaguar.[22] He reverted to the practice squad after the game on October 5.[23] He was placed on the practice squad/injured list on October 9,[24] and activated back to the practice squad on October 29.[25] He was released on October 30.[26] The next day, he was suspended four games by the NFL as a result of the incident from June.[27] He was re-signed to the Jaguars' practice squad while still on suspension on November 9.[28] He was reinstated from suspension on November 24, and restored to the practice squad.[29] He was elevated to the active roster on November 28 for the team's week 12 game against the Cleveland Browns, and reverted to the practice squad after the game.[30] He was promoted to the active roster on December 12, 2020.[31]

Rosas re-signed with the Jaguars on March 17, 2021.[32] He was released on July 30, 2021.[33]

New Orleans Saints[edit]

Rosas was signed by the New Orleans Saints on August 21, 2021.[34] He was released on September 1, 2021 and re-signed to the practice squad.[35][36] On September 11, he was promoted to the active roster following an injury to starting kicker Wil Lutz.[37] He was released on October 5.[38]

Detroit Lions[edit]

On November 16, 2021, Rosas was signed to the Detroit Lions practice squad.[39] On February 8, 2022, Rosas signed a reserve/future contract.[40] He was released by the Lions on May 31, 2022.[41]
