Rose was waived by the Chargers on Tuesday, Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports. Rose's release by the Chargers comes less than a week after he was signed to help with kickoffs in the divisional round. He was on the field for three kickoffs and had no potential fantasy value while Michael Badgley was handling field goals. Rose will set his sights on making a roster in 2019 after failing to latch on with a team during the 2018 regular season.
Rose signed with the Chargers on Thursday, Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports. The Chargers are bringing back their kickoff specialist from 2017 in advance of Sunday's game against the Patriots, who have a dangerous return man in Cordarrelle Patterson. Rose kicked touchbacks on eight of his nine kickoffs in 2017, per Fortier.
Rose was cut by the Texans on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Rose struggled mightily during the preseason, missing kicks in each game he appeared in for the Texans. Having kicked for the Redskins and Chargers in 2017, the 24-year-old has made 11 of 14 field-goal attempts and five of six extra-point kicks in his NFL career. Rose will become an unrestricted free agent if he isn't claimed off waivers by another team.
Rose went 2-for-2 on extra-point kicks and missed both of his field-goal attempts in Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams. One of the misses was a 57-yard attempt as time expired, so we're not giving Rose a demerit for that, but the 32-yarder he hooked into the left upright is problematic. The 24-year-old has missed kicks in both preseason games he's appeared in as a fill-in for the injured Ka'imi Fairbairn (undisclosed) -- Rose misfired on an extra-point kick the previous week against San Francisco. Fairbairn is expected to suit up Week 1 against the Patriots, but if his return is delayed, Rose's performance will likely have the Texans looking for another kicker.
Rose remains in Houston's camp while starting kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn continues to be sidelined by a soft-tissue injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Rose filled in for Fairbairn during the team's second preseason game Saturday against the 49ers, when he connected on a 32-yard field goal but missed an extra-point kick. "I don't know where Fairbairn's at (with his recovery)," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "He's working hard to get back. He's a great guy, but we've got Rose in there now. Rose needs to make all of his kicks, just like everybody else needs to improve. Then, we'll see where Fairbairn's at."
