Bucs cut beleaguered kicker Roberto Aguayo

Share

Aguayo, 23, lasted only one season with the Buccaneers after Tampa Bay traded up in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft to select the Florida State product. His fate was likely sealed after he claimed to be "unlucky" to miss a point-after try and a field goal in the preseason opener. Although it was his only attempt, Folk's kick was two yards further than Aguayo's longest field goal in 2016.

It didn't help Aguayo's case when Nick Folk drilled a 45-yard field goal midway through the third quarter.

"Honestly, the (extra point) felt good, " Aguayo said. "You just have to keep your head up move on to the next day". And while he recovered a bit in the regular season - his 94 percent success rate on extra points was right at the league average - he still hit just 22 of 31 field goal attempts, his 71 percent success rate putting him at the bottom of the NFL's kicking list. Folk converted 82.2 percent of his field goal attempts during his seven seasons in NY. I want to change this.

He now has the inside track at the starting job as the only kicker on the active roster. Obviously, not up to the standards that I want. But at the end of the day, I know what I'm capable of doing.
