Bucs cut beleaguered kicker Roberto Aguayo

Bucs cut beleaguered kicker Roberto Aguayo

For as great of a kicker as he was in the ACC for the Florida State Seminoles, Roberto Aguayo was anything but that for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after getting picked in the second round of the draft. It was the first time a kicker had gone so high since 2005, when the Jets took Mike Nugent.

In Friday night's preseason game, Aguayo missed a crucial field goal as well as an extra point attempt in a game that played a vital role in determining Aguayo's fate and future with the franchise. In Friday's preseason opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, Aguayo was 1-for-2 on field goals, making a 20-yarder but missing a 47-yarder.

It's a pretty stunning fall from grace for Aguayo, who was arguably the best kicker in college football history. He also missed two PATs during the season. His longest conversion was only from 43 yards away. The Buccaneers believed so much in the former Florida State kicker that the team traded up in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft to take him.

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. I know I pushed it a little bit, and I felt hopefully it would stay in but it broke right.

"That's something that will definitely be talked about,"Koetter said of Aguayo's disappointing performance immediately after the game, according to Jenna Laine of ESPN". Unlucky", Aguayo said. "That last one, I was just trying to put a good hit on it. I hit it good and it just started to fade. Not what I wanted. "You know, I keep saying it, I can't say it anymore".

"When you get bored doing something, 'well there's more I can do". I want to change that. "If you're a kicker, you've got to make your kicks".
