Ex-Giant kicker suspended four games for arrest
Exiled former Giants kicker is now on probation
Giants expected to cut ties with troubled first-round pick
The Giants have already found their new kicker
Police video of former Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas shows him bloody and barefoot while being arrested last July.
The footage, published by TMZ, shows officers stopping the 26-year-old in Chico, Calif., after Rosas allegedly T-boned another car and fled the scene. Rosas is seen walking along the side of the road as two police cars pull up in front and behind him before he is ordered to get down on his knees and eventually complies.
It’s then that one of officers notes the former Pro Bowler’s injuries, asking if he was ‘hurting anywhere” or “are you just all bloodied up and not hurting?” Medical personnel was brought to the scene because Rojas’ bare feet were described by a police officer as “pretty messed up.”
The 6-foot-3, 221-pound Rosas ended up pleading no contest to reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a valid license. He received three years of probation and no jail time. Rosas, a California native, was suspended four games by the NFL for a personal conduct violation and released by the Giants before training camp after three years with the team. He was picked up by the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4 and played six games.
Rosas had been arrested and charged with DUI before signing with the Giants in 2017. During his 2018 Pro Bowl season, he made 32 of 33 field-goal tries. Things only got worse as he made just 12 of 17 field goals and 35 of 39 extra points the next season.
