Best player at his position not named Saquon?

Is it possible it's Aldrick Rosas? Kickers get a bad rap, but they're extremely vital to a team's success and good kickers are rare. Plus they can play into their 40s. What a find this kid is. He's not even turning 25 until December 30th of this year. Look at the Jets and Bears these two games, with shitty kickers. Look at the Vikings with their struggles. It's such a luxury to have this important part of the roster squared away possibly for more than a decade. Maybe I'm jumping the gun a bit since he's only had one good season, but I'm so happy at the possibility of having this stud for a long time.

for Rosas. I'm glad to see Rosas proved me wrong.
Kickers are fickle as hell

Great one season, total headcase disasters the next. Hopefully Rosas is mentally tough and cements his place for the next decade. That would be a great luxury
Rosas could be a weapon for years and years

if he can keep it together. Having a clutch kicker is such an asset in the NFL.
So far this preseason

he's looked consistent with his play from last season and haven't seen anything from training camp reports about him so I take no news as good news in that case. 32/33 is crazy good.
I was in the camp for wanting him gone before the start of last season

My friend was at the Cardinals game in 2017 and said he missed every kick in the pregame warmup. In a dome! I was surprised by last year as well.
Hope he continues with his success.

I never understood this sentiment. Guy just started kicking in college, massive leg, and his misses were just barely missing. All this as a rookie.
Kickers are so important, I don't understand why teams don't prioritiz

it more. It seems like the Pats do. The Jets are going to regret letting their guy go this season.

"generational leg" thing, but these days he makes 45-yarders look like chip shots.
Hopefully Rosas is here for a decade
