A year after Aldrick Rosas made the Pro Bowl, the Giants are working out kickers. Rosas missed two field goals in the Giants’ five-point loss to the Bears.
The Giants brought in kickers Blair Walsh, Giorgio Tavecchio, Austin MacGinnis and Cole Hedlund on Tuesday, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson (on Twitter).
While Rosas did not kick well in Week 12, also booting a kickoff out of bounds, it would still be rather surprising to see a team give up on a third-year kicker who received a 2018 Pro Bowl invite. Rosas made 32 of 33 field goal tries last season and missed just one extra point. This year, he has not received nearly as many field goal chances. The former UDFA out of Southern Oregon is 8-for-12 on field goals and has missed three PATs.
Walsh caught on briefly with the Falcons and worked out for the Patriots and Jets this year. He also took part in a January workout for the then-kicker-needy Bears. Tavecchio and Walsh were briefly Falcons teammates this summer. The former held Atlanta’s kicking job for part of the 2018 season.

Not a giants fan, but gotta defend him on the ground ball snap! Not his fault! The holder did a great job, but that has to mess with your mind when you see that!
We should bring in coaches to work out. Pat Shurmer get out, please. Benny Mac was also terrible but looked like parcels compared to you.
Giants fan in Dallas. Don’t get to see as many game broadcast as I’d like, but what I have it looks as if defensive coaching is weakness.
It that I’m a Shurmur fan, just thinking he may get another season if he’s willing to sacrifice some of his staff.
Bring back macadoo!!!
Giorgio Tavecchio has the coolest sounding name in the league so I would want him on my team for sure. Even if he can’t kick he probably has some great wine and pizza recipes.
Do you think the black players have good fried chicken recipes ?
I guess we could ask the chickens.
