Whew. The stitching has barely set in from Cody Parkey’s nameplate on Aldrick Rosas’ old No. 6 jersey with the New Orleans Saints and Rosas is already finding new NFL opportunities. Friday’s update to the daily NFL transactions wire included a tryout for Rosas with the New York Giants alongside free agent kicker Michael Badgley.

Rosas was cut by the Saints this week after a poor four-game stint in relief of the injured Wil Lutz, only connecting on one of his four field goal tries — one of those misses coming against the Giants. Ironically, he started his NFL career with New York and even won All-Pro recognition in 2018. He spent some time with the Jacksonville Jaguars in between kicking for the Giants and Saints.

So you’ve got to wonder if the Giants know this is the same kicker they watched lay an egg and then another just a few days ago. But as Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com observed, New York has spent time in recent weeks updating their list of emergency-call specialists should a punter, snapper, or kicker be needed in a pinch. After this tryout, they’ve got a better idea of what Rosas has to offer at this stage in his career.
