Bucs dump Roberto Aguayo a year after trading up for kicker

Bucs 2016 2nd Round Pick K Roberto Aguayo Misses Another Extra Point (VIDEO)

Bucs 2016 2nd Round Pick K Roberto Aguayo Misses Another Extra Point (VIDEO)

The Bucs traded up into the second round to draft Aguayo after he was an All-American kicker at Florida State.

General manager Jason Licht and coach Koetter made it clear that they planned on sticking with the kicker who performs the best and completes the most field goals and extra point attempts overall, and clearly Aguayo wasn't the answer which resulted in the team waiving him following Friday night's game. His 71% accuracy on field goals was the lowest in the NFL.

Aguayo missed an extra point in the second quarter of a 23-12 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday night.

It should be noted that Aguayo never missed a kick in his entire college career.

Making matters worse for the youngster, the hottest kicking competition in the league (don't @ me) got even hotter when 32-year-old veteran Nick Folk drilled a 45-yarder. "Unlucky", Aguayo said after the game. He then tried to spin it by saying both kicks felt good off his foot, which doesn't really count for much when you consider that both missed. Not what you want. I want to change that.

"Well, that's something that will definitely be talked about, " Koetter said, per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. It was starting down the line and it just kept fading.

Asked if he thought he may have cost himself a job with Friday's performance, Aguayo said, "You wanted to come out and be ideal". I had a field goal in there but at the end of the day, it wasn't what I wanted. "It's a new day". "You just have to keep your head up move on to the next day". "If you're a kicker, you've got to make your kicks".
