Aldrick Rosas (born December 30, 1994) is an American football placekicker and punter for the Jacksonville Jaguars of the National Football League (NFL). He was selected to the Pro Bowl for the 2018 NFL season as a member of the New York Giants.
Rosas played college football at Southern Oregon University of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). In 2014, he tore the ACL in his kicking leg making a tackle in the NAIA Championship Game. After missing the 2015 season, he decided to forego the remainder of college eligibility to pursue a career in the NFL.
On January 19, 2017, Rosas signed a reserve/future contract with the New York Giants. Rosas was the only kicker on the Giants roster after former Giants' placekicker Robbie Gould agreed to a two-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers, until veteran Mike Nugent signed a contract with the team on August 1, 2017. Rosas ultimately won the starting kicker job after Nugent was released during final roster cuts.
On September 10, 2017, in the Giants' season-opening 19-3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Rosas converted his first NFL career field goal, a 25-yard attempt, in the third quarter. Prior to the game, he watched his girlfriend give birth via FaceTime.
Rosas retained his starting job with the Giants for the 2018 season. He vastly improved on his rookie season, becoming a Pro Bowl selection, converting 32 of 33 field goal attempts and 31 of 32 PATs, with his only missed PAT due to a poor snap. He was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his Week 13 performance against the Chicago Bears where he converted three field goals, including a New York Giants franchise record 57-yarder and the game-winning 44-yard field goal in overtime.
The Giants placed a second-round tender on Rosas on March 16, 2020, and signed it on April 8, 2020. On July 15, 2020, Rosas was formally charged with three misdemeanors in the Superior Court of California for an alleged high-speed hit-and-run that led to his arrest on June 16. Rosas was released by the Giants on July 27, 2020. He pleaded no contest to the charges on September 23, 2020, and was sentenced to three years of probation.
On September 28, 2020, Rosas was signed to the Jacksonville Jaguars' practice squad. He was elevated to the active roster on October 3 for the team's week 4 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, and made four field goals in his first game as a Jaguar. He reverted to the practice squad after the game on October 5. He was placed on the practice squad/injured list on October 9, and activated back to the practice squad on October 29. He was released on October 30. The next day, he was suspended four games by the NFL as a result of the incident from June. He was re-signed to the Jaguars' practice squad while still on suspension on November 9. He was reinstated from suspension on November 24, and restored to the practice squad. He was elevated to the active roster on November 28 for the team's week 12 game against the Cleveland Browns, and reverted to the practice squad after the game. He was promoted to the active roster on December 12, 2020.
Rosas re-signed with the Jaguars on March 17, 2021.
