The next position I’m keeping a close eye on as training camp begins is the kicker position. The Giants cut Aldrick Rosas this week due to his ugly legal situation. As a result, the team signed kicker Chandler Catanzaro to fill the position for training camp.
Catanzaro has a career 83.8% field goal percentage and spent time with the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay buccaneers in 2018. He was with the Arizona Cardinals from 2014 to 2016 and spent 2017 with the New York Jets.
Catanzaro has a career-long field goal of 60 yards. He can certainly hit field goals from deep, but consistency has been an issue with Chandler. In 2018, Catanzaro was 0/3 on field goal attempts between 40-49 yards and 3/3 on attempts of 50+ yards. Catanzaro is the only kicker on the Giants’ roster currently, but it is more than a strong possibility that the Giants will add another kicker to the competition by the end of training camp.
