The New York Giants are expected to cut placekicker Aldrick Rosas after his arrest in an alleged hit-and-run traffic accident, per reports from Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport.
Rosas faces a trio of misdemeanor charges from an accident last month in which he collided with a pickup truck while traveling roughly 100 miles per hour.
Rosas appears to have confirmed his release via Instagram.
Rosas, 25, has been the Giants’ kicker for three seasons, playing in all 48 games. Over that span of time, Rosas has made 62 of 75 field goals (82.7 percent) and 86 of 94 extra points (91.5 percent). Rosas made the Pro Bowl in 2018 after connecting on 97 percent of his field goals and missing just two kicks (one FG, XP each) all season.
After his Pro Bowl 2018 season, in which he made 32 of 33 field goal attempts, Rosas made only 12 of 17 field goal attempts (70.6 percent) last season.
The 25-year-old was tendered at the second-round level in March and is slated to make $3.26 million on his one-year deal.
There is no word on the status of second-year cornerback DeAndre Baker, facing felony charges from an alleged armed robbery.
