Giants place 2nd round tender on restricted free agent PK Aldrick Rosas

Rosas will likely remain with the Giants for the 2020 season

NFL: New York Giants at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants have placed a second-round tender on kicker Aldrick Rosas. The team made that official vis its Twitter account Monday afternoon.

By placing the second-round tender on Rosas, the other teams in the NFL are still able to negotiate with the 25-year-old placekicker. However, if the Giants choose to not match an offer sheet, they will receive a second-round pick in compensation from the team that signs Rosas.

Dunleavy added that the second-round tender means Roses will make roughly $3.2 million next season. That likely means that Rosas will be back in blue for the 2020 season and gives the Giants a framework in which to negotiate a long-term contract.

Rosas was a consistent weapon on special teams and a Pro Bowl player in 2018, making a big leap from a poor season in 2017. He wasn’t as consistent in 2019, but rounded back into form late in the season after long snapper was Zak DeOssie was placed on the injured reserve and Colin Holba was promoted to the active roster.
