The Jacksonville Jaguars have added kicker Aldrick Rosas to their practice squad, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

So after losing two kickers to injury last week, they add two today: Stephen Hauschka on the active roster, Rosas to the p-squad.
The former New York Giants’ kicker, who represented the NFC in the 2018 Pro-Bowl, will have an opportunity to redeem himself after being released from the Giants after an alleged hit and run during the summer. The Jaguars’ kicker Josh Lambo landed on injured reserve. Brandon Wright, who filled in on Thursday, injured his groin. The injuries led to the Jaguars signing Stephan Hauschka to their active roster.
Rosas has a big leg, but is coming off a poor 2019 where he connected on 12 of 17 field goal attempts (71 percent) while being 1 of 4 from 40-49 yards. Rosas is only 25 years of age, and it appears that NFL teams still have interest in the kicker. If something happens to Hauschka, Rosas will be promoted and given an opportunity to stick with the Jaguars.
