Buccaneers kicker Roberto Aguayo released after missing two preseason kicks

Buccaneers kicker Roberto Aguayo released after missing two preseason kicks”

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

To say Aguayo's transition to the National Football League was bad would be an understatement.

Aguayo clanged a PAT attempt off the right upright after a Bucs touchdown late in the first half, then missed a 47-yard field goal wide right on Tampa Bay's final possession of the game. "You know, I keep saying it, I can't say it anymore".

One year later and Aguayo looks like he's in similar form after he shanked yet another extra point in the Bucs first preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday. Unlucky. And the last one, I was trying to get a good hit on it.

"Honestly, the extra point felt good". I hit it good and it just started to fade. Obviously, not up to the standards that I want. He only made 22 of his 31 field goal attempts (71 percent) and his career-long make was only 43 yards. You just have to keep your head up and move onto the next day.

Tampa Bay had to stick with Aguayo in 2016 after spending such a high pick on him, but the leash figures to be much shorter this preseason with the veteran Folk on hand.

After an incredible career at Florida State where Aguayo made 198-of-198 PATs and 69-of-78 field goals, the Buccaneers traded up in the second round of the National Football League draft to grab Aguayo with the 59th overall pick.
