The Giants have released K Chandler Catanzaro.
Catanzaro signed with the Giants during the off-season to replace Aldrick Rosas. New York signed free agent kicker Graham Gano on Monday, and ultimately decided to move on from Catanzaro. The 29-year-old will look to latch onto another team.
Former Jets and Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro has signed a one-year deal with the New York Giants after the team released Aldrick Rosas.
Rumors swirled about the Giants bringing in former Patriots K Stephen Gostkowski due to his relationship with head coach Joe Judge, but that didn’t happen. Instead, it’s Catanzaro who gets a shot with the Giants after retiring from the NFL in August of 2019.
Chandler Catanzaro converted his lone field goal attempt but just one of his three extra point attempts in the Jets' preseason loss to the Giants.
This was a bad start for a kicker with a spotty record. Catanzaro is the only kicker on the roster at the moment, so he'll be playing in the regular season, but shouldn't be a priority option in fantasy leagues.
Panthers K Chandler Catanzaro was successful on both of his field goal attempts and on 3-of-4 of his extra point attempts in Sunday's Week 17 win over New Orleans.
Catanzaro played well with Graham Gano out, but it is very likely that Gano will return as the Panthers kicker in 2019. At worst, both players could be brought back for a competition. Catanzaro should be in the NFL in 2019 in some capacity.
Panthers K Chandler Catanzaro was successful on his only field goal attempt and on his lone extra point attempt in Sunday's Week 16 loss to Atlanta.
Catanzaro had another underwhelming game in Sunday's loss. He will look to finish his journeyman year on a plus note next week at New Orleans.
