CelebNSports247.com reports that the New York Giants cut a Pro Bowler and bought his surprise replacement out of retirement.
After a hit-and-run collision that resulted in three misdemeanor charges in California, Kicker Aldrick Rosas was released Sunday.
The Giants retained Rosas as a restricted free agent in March on a non-guaranteed one-year, $3.2 million contract. With that said, there is no dead salary-cap space associated with the release.
Aldrick Rosas kept things professional on his way out. He thanked Giants ownership and fans for support in a goodbye note on Instagram.
It’s been an incredible ride and I’ve met so many amazing coaches and teammates. I wish I could’ve performed at the level I know I can play at. I have nothing but love towards the New York Giants. The value of character, love, and family are seen in everyday life at the facility within the staff and management.
Rosas was charged with reckless driving, hit and run property damage and driving on a suspended license due to a previous DUI in California. He does not face any alcohol-related charges — despite California Highway Patrol’s notation alcohol was suspected in the June 15 crash.
He was not given a sobriety test.
Important #Giants note: It’s my understanding Aldrick Rosas’ misdeamor charges from hit-and-run don’t rise to level of NFL invetervention w/ Commissioner’s Exempt List (associated with violent crime allegations). So #nyg had to act. Baker has guaranteed $, draft status, too.

Witnesses reported Rosas ran a red light in at 90-100 miles per hour before the crash in an intersection. Police say they caught up to a bloodied Rosas three hours later walking on the side of the road, about a mile from the scene.
Rosas has an arraignment hearing Sept. 4 that does not require an in-person appearance and the case is unlikely to be resolved before then. The Giants cut ties Aldrick Rosas.
