New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman values special teams, as we have seen in recent years.

Gettleman brought Thomas McGaughey back to New York as coordinator when he took over the team three years ago. He doubled down on that decision when he hired New England Patriots special teams coordinator Joe Judge to be head coach. Judge then wisely asked McGaughey to stay on.

The Giants decided to invest in former Pro Bowl kicker Aldrick Rosas, coming off a down season, by exercising his $3.2 million restricted free agent tender this spring. Rosas, however, was arrested in California this month on charges of misdemeanor hit-and-run and driving on a suspended license.

Rosas, 25, could find himself suspended by the league under the personal conduct policy. That would mean the Giants have to go shopping for a kicker this summer if Rosas is unavailable. If they decide to keep him, that is.

Who could the Giants possibly bring in to replace him? The pickings at kicker are usually thin.

“Replacing a kicker is a one-step move — one out, one in,” wrote the New York Post’s Paul Schwartz. “There is plenty of time in training camp for a new kicker to acclimate to his new holder and long-snapper. The best available kickers are Stephen Gostkowski, Nick Folk, Ryan Succop, Ka’imi Fairbairn, Chase McLaughlin and Adam Vinatieri. Gostkowski has a long history with Giants coach Joe Judge, but he is 36 and must show he is healthy. Vinatieri is 46.”

Gostkowski is likely to get a call because of his relationship with Judge. Folk kicked for the Pats last year, and Judge knows him from all of his years with the Jets. Fairbairn is not available, so you can take him off the list.

I can’t see Vinatieri being brought in, because he’d be a short-term fix. The others are all fairly equal in ability with up-and-down careers.
