The New York Giants have tendered Pro Bowl kicker Aldrick Rosas, center Jon Halapio and fullback Elijhaa Penny.
All three of these roster moves were beneficial decisions made by the Giants’ front office.
Rosas made his first-career Pro Bowl in his second NFL season in 2018 and was selected to the AP All-Pro second team. He connected on 32 of 33 field goals for the Giants this past season, a 97 percent conversion rate. Rosas also converted on 31 of 32 extra points in 2018, a percentage of 96.9.
Halapio, if you remember, was the Giants starting center at the beginning of the season. The veteran offensive lineman suffered a broken ankle in a week two loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The injury sidelined him for the remainder of the year.
After Halapio went down, Spencer Pulley started 13 games for the Giants at the center position. Halapio seems to still be in the mix for the future. Hopefully will be ready to go when the new season is underway.
Retaining Penny is also a good move by the Giants. He was signed last year in September off the Arizona Cardinals practice squad and was brought in to mainly be a lead-blocker for the Big Blue running game.
Along with succeeding in his role as a blocker through 14 games, Penny also had eight receptions out of the backfield for the Giants offense. He carried the ball seven times during the year as well for 25 yards.
Again, it isn’t a move regarding keeping Collins. However, these three players have proved that they deserve roster spots for the future and hopefully bring great things for the organization in 2019 and beyond.
