NFL Network reports the Giants will cut K Aldrick Rosas “soon.” Rosas followed being a lackluster FG kicker with an off-season arrest for an alleged hit-and-run. Make sure you avoid him in best-ball drafts. Keep an eye on free-agent K Stephen Gostkowski, with the Giants now employing former Patriots coach Joe Judge as HC.
Giants K Aldrick Rosas was arrested on Tuesday and charged with a hit-and-run and driving on a suspended license. He reportedly T-boned another vehicle when he ran a red light at about 100 mph -- and then fled the scene. Authorities believe alcohol was involved. Rosas figures to draw a suspension from the league for this, and the Giants might just opt to release him. Avoid him in upcoming fantasy drafts.
The Giants have released K Mike Nugent. So Aldrick Rosas has won the team's kicking job. The Southern Oregon alum banged home all 8 of his FG attempts this preseason, including 47, 48 and 52 yarders. We'd go with a more proven K in fantasy lineups to open the year, but Rosas could emerge as a spot-start option.
