The Giants sent out a few tenders for the 2019 season, including K Aldrick Rosas and WR Corey Coleman, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed on Wednesday.

Rosas was among the five exclusive rights free agents (ERFAs). Center Jon Halapio and FB Eli Penny were issued tenders, while OL Kristjan Sokoli and DT Jordan Williams did not receive one which means they will be unrestricted free agents on March 13 when the new league year begins. Those issued a tender will make a league minimum salary for the new year.

Rosas was an essential for the Giants to bring back, especially after his impressive 2018 season. He was one of the best kickers in the NFL, hitting 32-of-33 field goals and 31-of-32 extra points. This performance earned the 24-year-old his first Pro Bowl bid, as it was a big step forward from a shaky 2017 season.

A key member of the 2018 Giants is officially back in the fold.

In a no-brainer move, the Giants tendered exclusive rights free agent kicker Aldrick Rosas, a source told SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. Rosas, 24, made the 2018 Pro Bowl in his second season as the Giants' kicker and was named second-team All-Pro. 

Rosas completed 97 percent of his field goals last season (32-for-33) and converted 31 of 32 extra-point attempts. He was 4-for-5 on field-goal attempts of at least 50 yards and 6-for-6 on attempts between 40 and 49 yards.

As an exclusive rights FA, Rosas will get a one-year, minimum-salary contract.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Everything Aldrick Rosas has done so far this offseason has impressed his Giants teammates and coaches, and they have faith he can be a reliable kicker.

But the truth is, they can't possibly know that for sure because the 22-year-old Rosas has never kicked in an NFL game.

"I think that you kind of check boxes as you go along," Giants special teams coach Tom Quinn said at minicamp this week. "Are his times in the range? Yes. The height, the rotation, handling the wind? The different scenarios we put him in? The next step is handling the games. So that will be the next big thing."
