New York Giants re-sign Pro Bowl placekicker Aldrick Rosas
The Giants didn’t disclose contract details Thursday in announcing the signing of the exclusive rights free agent.
After an inconsistent rookie season, Rosas hit 32 of 33 field goal attempts and 31 of 32 extra point attempts. His .970 percentage on field goals was a franchise record and just slightly behind NFL leader Robbie Gould, who made 33 of 34 attempts.
Josh Brown set the previous Giants’ record in 2015 at .938.
Rosas finished with 127 points, tying Ali Haji-Sheikh for the fifth-highest total in team history. His 32 field goals were three less than the team single-season record shared by John Carney (2008), Jay Feely (2005) and Haji-Sheikh (1983).
Rosas made his final 19 field goal attempts, the second-longest streak in club history. Brown made 29 in a row bridging the 2014-15 seasons.
The 24-year-old Rosas also made the longest field goal in Giants’ history last season, a 57-yarder against the Chicago Bears. Haji-Sheikh held the previous record of 56 yards.
