Buccaneers cut Roberto Aguayo one year after trading up to draft kicker

12 Août 2017

It's an unfortunate end for Aguayo but there is one thing at the very top of his job description he didn't do and that was make kicks.

The former star Florida State kicker was, stunningly, taken in the second round of the draft by Tampa Bay.

However, Friday night's game apparently topped it off as his kicking game woes continued on and he missed one field-goal and an extra point attempt in the team's loss to the Bengals in their preseason opener.

It's a little surprising that they didn't let the competition play its way through training camp but at the same time Folk is a reliable kicker and if need be, the Buccaneers can bring in another kicker to compete with Folk instead of handing him the job outright. Not what I wanted.

Bahrain hosts 8,000 United States troops, mostly sailors attached to a sprawling based called the Naval Support Activity. Naval officials began an investigation into the crash and were trying to help the airport resume operations, Urban said.

After quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick hit paydirt from six yards out to give Tampa its first touchdown, Aguayo lined up...and missed the extra point.

It didn't help Aguayo's case when Nick Folk drilled a 45-yard field goal midway through the third quarter. I want to change that. "You're a kicker, you gotta make your kicks". He connected on 23 of 24 field goals during the Seminoles' national title run in 2013 and was a Groza award finalist in 2014 after converting 27 of 30 field goals. The Bucs had turned to young kickers in each of the previous two seasons, with first-year player Pat Murray in 2014 and rookie Kyle Brindza in 2015; Brindza struggled enough that he was released and replaced by veteran Connor Barth a month later. I hit it good and it just started to fade.

"When you get bored doing something, 'well there's more I can do".
