The Giants are releasing kicker Aldrick Rosas, who faces formal charges in an alleged high-speed California hit-and-run that led to his June arrest, NYDaily reports.
Sources confirmed the organization’s intentions to the Daily News on Sunday morning.
The Giants did not wait for an official ruling from the NFL on league discipline for Rosas, 25, that would have impacted his 2020 availability, sources told the News. The organization is preempting any official league decision by cutting their troubled kicker first.
Rosas was formally charged on July 15 with three misdemeanors in the Superior Court of California stemming from the alleged incident. The Daily News first reported his formal charging on July 16.
