The NY Giants received more poor legal news regarding one of their players on Monday morning; this time, about kicker Aldrick Rosas.
It appears Aldrick Rosas’ time with the NY Giants has almost mirrored his personal life in the past few years; moments of greatness, and moments of failure.
By now, everyone knows Aldrick Rosas was arrested Monday morning in about the worst type of DUI – short of anyone dying or being seriously injured – you could possibly be in. He ran from the accident, adding further trouble to the situation and making it much more serious.
This is where I go back to my original point about the mirroring because this is not Aldrick Rosas’ first DUI according to The New York Post; that sort of changes things here.
In a way, it resembles his football career; gets off to a shaky start, does some amazing things (he made the All-Pro team in 2018), only to go right back down the ladder.
That makes this a very difficult and confusing situation for the NY Giants brass, as legal trouble has led their news waves all offseason and they’ve even had a kicker arrested for serious issues just a few years ago.
Rosas is subject to a mandatory suspension of two games for the DUI, so at the very least we know we’ll need a kicker for the first two games of the season. It’s unknown if the team will cut him due to this recent arrest and might not be known for quite some time, but I do think he has a decent chance of sticking with the team.
Besides that, the team would be nuts to only bring in one kicker for its offseason activities given the barren pool of talent currently makes up the kicker market.
Due to that market being so underwhelming, I got a little outside the box here on some of these and did some deep digging to see if we could dig up a potential gem.
Furthermore, I feel let down on a personal level (not that Rosas owes me a damn thing), as I campaigned for the team to retain him this offseason no matter what it took.
Here are five potential options to replace Aldrick Rosas at kicker, in order of my opinion of the best option to the worst option.
