Team search continues

Rose won't sign a contract after trying out with the Bears on Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Rose, Younghoe Koo and Caleb Sturgis all participated in the tryout, but the Bears are opting to stick with Christ Blewitt and Redford Jones for now. Rose went 11-for-14 on field-goal attempts over 10 games between the Chargers and Redskins in 2017.

Set to try out with Chicago

Rose will try out with the Bears on Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Rose hasn't played in the NFL since 2017 when he spent two games with the Chargers and eight with the Redskins.

Waived by Chargers

Rose was waived by the Chargers on Tuesday, Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Rose's release by the Chargers comes less than a week after he was signed to help with kickoffs in the divisional round. He was on the field for three kickoffs and such had no potential fantasy value while Michael Badgley was handling field goals. Rose will set his sights on making a roster in 2019 after failing to make a team during the 2018 regular season.

Signs with Chargers

Rose signed with the Chargers on Thursday, Sam Fortier of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The Chargers are bringing back their kickoff specialist from 2017 in advance of Sunday's game against the Patriots, who have a dangerous return man in Cordarrelle Patterson. Rose kicked touchbacks on eight of his nine kickoffs in 2017, per Fortier.

Let go by Houston

Rose was waived by the Texans on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Rose struggled mightily during the preseason, missing kicks in each game he appeared in for the Texans. Having kicked for the Redskins and Chargers in 2017, the 24-year-old has made 11 of 14 field-goal attempts and five of six extra-point kicks in his NFL career. Rose will become an unrestricted free agent if he isn't claimed off waivers by another team.

Misses kick for second straight week

Rose went 2-for-2 on extra-point kicks and missed both of his field-goal attempts in Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams.

Analysis: One of the misses was a 57-yard attempt as time expired, so we're not giving Rose a demerit for that, but the 32-yarder he hooked into the left upright is problematic. The 24-year-old has missed kicks in both preseason games he's appeared in as a fill-in for the injured Ka'imi Fairbairn (undisclosed) -- Rose misfired on an extra-point kick the previous week against San Francisco. Fairbairn is expected to suit up Week 1 against the Patriots, but if his return is delayed, Rose's performance will likely have the Texans looking for another kicker.

Still in camp

Rose remains in Houston's camp while starting kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn continues to be sidelined by a soft-tissue injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Rose filled in for Fairbairn during the team's second preseason game Saturday, connecting on a 32-yard field goal against the 49ers, but missed an extra-point kick. "I don't know where Fairbairn's at (with his recovery)," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "He's working hard to get back. He's a great guy, but we've got Rose in there now. Rose needs to make all of his kicks, just like everybody else needs to improve. Then, we'll see where Fairbairn's at."

Signs with Houston

Rose auditioned for the Texans on Wednesday and signed a contract with them, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: This is expected to be a short-term roster addition. Starting placekicker Ka'imi Fairbairn is sidelined by a minor undisclosed injury that may cause him to miss Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers. Rose is a local product out of the University of Texas and kicked for Washington and the Los Angeles Chargers in 2017. He's made 11-of-14 field-goal attempts and 5-of-6 extra-point kicks.
