The New Orleans Saints defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars in their second preseason game of the summer and in doing so, several players saw their value tumble.
Out of the four players we’ll be discussing, only two were locks to make the final roster while the other two were recent additions who didn’t have a good showing on Monday night. While one of the locks was injured, the position as a whole is currently in shambles and could find their way out of a starting job with this recent injury.
Let’s dive into the first player whose value tumbled after the Monday night victory over Jacksonville.
Saints whose value tumbled – No. 4: Aldrick Rosas
Shockingly, the kicker position wasn’t the one I was referring to when I said there was a position in shambles but it’s halfway there.
The Saints signed Aldrick Rosas after Wil Lutz was injured and Brett Maher also ended up getting injured. Rosas made it to a Pro Bowl with the Giants in 2018 but found himself as a free agent this late in the game for a reason.
Rosas knocked through a 52-yard field goal in the Monday night win but missed an extra-point attempt that almost proved lethal at the end of the game. The Jaguars had gotten to within two points of New Orleans and a field goal could have won it for them, so the extra-point miss was concerning, to say the least. We don’t want that happening in the regular season.
If Rosas struggles again in the preseason finale, he might not make the team.
