Catanzaro has officially signed his contract
We have officially signed K Chandler Catanzaro
— New York Giants (@Giants) August 1, 2020
The Giants brought Catanzaro out of retirement last week, agreeing to the terms of the contract on July 26th — though he couldn’t sign that contract before passing his physical. The Giants added Catanzaro to fill the void at the kicker position left by the arrest and eventual release of Aldrick Rosas. Catanzaro, 29, came into the NFL in 2014 and has kicked for the Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Carolina Panthers.
As of this writing, it remains to be seen whether Catanzaro will be the only kicker brought in this summer, or if they will make room on their reduced roster to add a second kicker. As it stands now, all eyes are on Graham Gano, who was released by the Panthers earlier this week. Gano has familiarity with both Dave Gettleman and special teams coach Thomas McGaughey, and has been one of the best kickers in the NFL over the course of his career.
