The Giants signed kicker Marshall Koehn to the practice squad, per a team announcement. To make room, the club cut tight end Garrett Dickerson from the 10-man unit.
It’s possible that Aldrick Rosas is banged up, but he has not been listed on the injury report in advance of Sunday’s game against the Eagles. The Giants aren’t looking to dump Rosas, who turns 24 next month. Rosas has connected on 95% of his field goal tries this season, which puts him fourth among all qualifying kickers in the NFL, and he has nailed all of his extra point attempts in 2018.
Assuming Rosas is healthy, it’s possible that the Giants are getting an advanced look at Koehn for the offseason. Then again, the Giants can keep Rosas on the cheap in 2019 thanks to his status as an exclusive rights free agent (ERFA), so there’s little need for a Plan B.
Koehn, 26, appeared in his one and only NFL game last year as a member of the Bengals. He spent this past offseason with the Giants and had a three-day stint on their practice squad in October.
