Bucs waive K Aguayo after preseason misses

Roberto Aguayo

Roberto Aguayo

Former Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday afternoon.

The Bucs finally released their mistake in grabbing a kicker so early, but now maybe Aguayo can shake off the pressure of his draft status and thrive on another team. Many have called for it and it looks like Jason Licht and Dirk Koetter have had enough. You're a kicker. You gotta make your kicks. The news came after the team's first preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals, where Aguayo missed both a field goal and an extra point. He only made 22 of his 31 field goal attempts (71 percent) and his career-long make was only 43 yards. "When I caught it, I knew I pushed it a little bit and I was like, 'Hopefully it will stay in, ' but it hit the upright".

The 32-year-old Folk spent the last seven seasons with the New York Jets (2010-16), converted 27 of 31 field goals (87.1 percent) in 2016, tied for sixth-best in the National Football League, while making 24 of 26 extra-point attempts. It's good to have someone out here just to see, to visually see someone [else].

"I keep saying it". I want to change this. You just have to keep your head up and move onto the next day. I want to change that.

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. I did some good things.

"When you get bored doing something, 'well there's more I can do". In the third quarter, Nick Folk nailed a 45-yard field goal.
