Rosas officially re-signed with the Giants on Thursday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports. There was little chance Rosas would sign anywhere else given his prior status as an exclusive-rights free agent. Regardless, the breakout fantasy kicker and 2018 Pro Bowler is now officially under contract with the Giants through 2019 after nailing 32 of 33 field-goal attempts last season, which set a franchise record for conversion percentage (97.0). It's possible he could even build upon this production if the Giants' Saquon Barkley-led offense can take a step forward in 2019.
Rosas was tendered a contract by the Giants on Wednesday, Ryan Dunleavy of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. The Giants' decision is unsurprising after Rosas turned in a Pro Bowl season in 2018 that included a stellar 32-for-33 success rate on field-goal attempts. The 24-year-old enters 2019 as a reliable kicking option with a firm hold on the job.
Rosas drilled both of his field-goal attempts and all three point-after attempts Sunday in the Giants' 36-35 loss to the Cowboys. Rosas was nearly perfect on the year, making 32 of 33 field-goal attempts -- including all four from 50-plus yards -- to earn his first Pro Bowl nod. Kickers can be volatile from year to year, but the Giants might have found their long-term answer at the position.
Rosas did not attempt a field goal or an extra point in Sunday's shutout loss to the Titans. The Giants were shut out Sunday, marking the first game this season that Rosas did not attempt a field goal. He remains 28-of-29 on field-goal attempts this season, cementing him as one of the most accurate kickers this year.
Rosas made both his field-goal attempts and four of his five extra-point tries in Sunday's 40-16 rout of the Redskins. Rosas converted from 35 and 23 yards on his respective field goals, bringing his record to an incredible 28 of 29 on the season. Although he'll be disappointed by missing his first extra point of the campaign, Rosas has still scored in double figures in three straight games, and his 109 points are tied for sixth among kickers league-wide.
