Rosas played college football at Southern Oregon University of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). In 2014, he tore the ACL in his kicking leg making a tackle in the NAIA Championship Game. After missing the 2015 season, he decided to forego the remainder of college eligibility to pursue a career in the NFL.
New York GiantsEdit
On January 19, 2017, Rosas signed a reserve/future contract with the New York Giants. Rosas was the only kicker on the Giants roster after former Giants' placekicker Robbie Gould agreed to a two-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers, until veteran Mike Nugent signed a contract with the team on August 1, 2017. Rosas ultimately won the starting kicker job after Nugent was released during final roster cuts.
On September 10, 2017, in the Giants' season-opening 19–3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Rosas converted his first NFL career field goal, a 25-yard attempt, in the third quarter. Prior to the game, he watched his girlfriend give birth via FaceTime.
Rosas retained his starting job with the Giants for the 2018 season. He vastly improved on his rookie season, becoming a Pro Bowl selection, converting 32 of 33 field goal attempts and 31 of 32 PATs, with his only missed PAT was due to a poor snap. He was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his Week 13 performance against the Chicago Bears where he converted three field goals, including a New York Giants franchise record 57-yarder and the game-winning 44-yard field goal in overtime.
