EAST RUTHERFORD Kendall Sheffield Jersey , N.J. (AP) — Aldrick Rosas came to the New York Giants‘ training camp as somewhat of a long shot to keep his job as placekicker.The former NAIA player struggled in his rookie season, hitting 18 of 25 field goals, while missing three of 23 extra points. Upsetting the coaching staff: his occasional tendency to have one of his kickoffs go out of bounds, allowing opponents to start drives at their 40-yard line.It wasn’t a good first year and Rosas knew it.So after giving himself a little time with his family — a daughter was born early last season — Rosas went back to work, and never stopped.Rosas was almost perfect in training camp and the preseason in beating out Marshall Koehn, a first-year free agent. It has paid off bigtime during the season: Rosas on Tuesday was voted to the NFC team in the Pro Bowl. The second-year pro has hit 28 of 29 field goal attempts and 25 of 26 PATs. His .966 field goal percentage is second in the NFL to former Giants kicker Robbie Gould (.967 on 29 of 30). His 109 points are ninth in the league.Among his field goals is a franchise record 57-yarder against Chicago. His only field goal missed was on a 52-yard attempt against Philadelphia on Oct. 11.“I don’t know how to describe it — shocking, just to get that support and votes from my peers and the fans, and everybody in the building, this organization just being behind me,” Rosas said Wednesday of the honor. “It’s real special.”Rosas said a lot of the credit has to go to long snapper Zak DeOssie, holder Riley Dixon, and the coaching staff.The soon to be 24-year-old said he has prospered by taking things day by day. He sorted out his kicking technique with former NFL kicker John Carney in San Diego in the offseason while working on his mental approach to the game.“He has put his nose to the grindstone,” said Dixon, a punter signed in the offseason who has become the holder in the operation John Cominsky Jersey , replacingBrad Wing. “He just kept working.”As Rosas spoke, DeOssie smiled in the background, somewhat like the proud dad. He has been with the Giants since 2007 and has been around a lot of good kickers.Rosas saw him smiling and called him “the oldest guy in the NFL” and “a dinosaur.”When DeOssie was asked if Rosas was paying for the holder and snapper to go to the Pro Bowl in Orlando, he quipped: “He bought us tickets.”Rosas, who wasn’t pursued by major colleges, has come a long way from kicking at Southern Oregon, a public liberal arts college in Ashland, Oregon with an enrollment of around 4,300 students. Big crowds on game days were a couple of hundred fans.He was signed as a free agent by Tennessee in May 2016 and released at the end of training camp. The Giants signed him to a reserve/future contact in January 2017 and he beat out veteran Mike Nugent in training camp.“Yeah, it’s starting to kind of hit now in these last couple of hours, and even last night,” Rosas said. “Just how, NAIA and small high school, just to last year Qadree Ollison Jersey , to kind of now. The story is still kind of getting written. When you’re around a great group of guys, a great organization, great fans, it’s just a huge blessing.”Rosas is one of coach Pat Shurmur’s favorite players. He looks like a buff linebacker, plays the same way, and makes kicks, too.NOTES: WR Odell Beckham Jr. (quad), LB Alec Ogletree (concussion), C Spencer Pulley (calf), WR Russell Shepard (ankle) and S Michael Thomas (excused absence) did not practice Wednesday.

(AP) — Los Angeles Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman will pay his fine from the NFL for a helmet-to-helmet hit on New Orleans receiver Tommylee Lewis in the NFC championship game.The Rams’ slot cornerback wants to move past the drama surrounding that now-infamous hit, which also appeared to happen well before Drew Brees‘ pass arrived in the fourth quarter last Sunday. No flag was thrown for pass interference or for the helmet-to-helmet nature of the hit, possibly altering the outcome of Los Angeles’ 26-23 overtime victory at New Orleans.“It’s all good, and I’m moving on Ed Oliver Jersey ,” Robey-Coleman said. “That’s how the league feels. That’s their call.”Robey-Coleman confirmed he received a fine from the NFL on Friday, essentially a tacit acknowledgement by the league that a penalty should have been called. The NFL Network reported he was fined $26,739.Robey-Coleman wouldn’t say whether he agreed with the league’s decision to fine him for helmet-to-helmet contact, but the veteran defensive back acknowledged after the game that he could have easily been whistled for pass interference.“It’s the league’s call, the ref’s call,” Robey-Coleman said. “I have nothing to do with that (decision). I made a football play. The ref made his call, and there’s nothing else that I could do about it. That’s their call, and that’s something that you just have to live with as a football team, and we’re going to the Super Bowl, so we just have to move on.”They’re not done talking about it in New Orleans, however. The no-call has sparked outrage among the Saints and their fans, including calls for a Super Bowl boycott. Two lawsuits have been filed over the officiating, calling for everything from a replay of the game’s final moments to full refunds for Superdome fans.New Orleans coach Sean Payton said the referees “blew the call.”If Robey-Coleman had been flagged, the Saints would have been able to wind down the clock to the final seconds of regulation before kicking a short field goal Cody Ford Jersey , putting them in a commanding position to win. Instead, the Rams are going to their first Super Bowl in 17 years after they drove for a tying field goal and an overtime winner.The Rams have been diplomatic about their fortunate break, acknowledging the sketchy nature of Robey-Coleman’s hit while also gently pointing out that one play doesn’t decide any game.“All we do as coaches, if a (penalty) is called, we usually get mad if it’s against us,” Los Angeles defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said. “If a (penalty) is not called, we thought they were holding Aaron Donald or something. But if they don’t call it, you go to the next play. That’s the way the game has been played for a long time.”By paying the fine instead of appealing it, Robey-Coleman hopes to turn his focus to facing Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl in Atlanta next weekend. Robey-Coleman is likely to line up extensively against Julian Edelman, the Patriots’ vaunted slot receiver.“Him and Tom (Brady) work great together,” said Robey-Coleman, who faced the Patriots repeatedly during his time in the AFC East with the Buffalo Bills. “Can’t wait to get on the field and play against those guys.”
