The Tampa Bay Buccaneers cut former second round pick Roberto Aguayo after he continued to struggle with accuracy. Veteran kicker Nick Folk replaced Aguayo, and he also struggled in his first appearance as with the Bucs.
Tampa was taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Folk had an extra point blocked in his first attempt.
Later in the game, Folk missed a field goal, giving every Bucs fan and coach flashbacks to last season with Aguayo.
Aguayo was 22-of-31 on field goals last season, and he was 32-34 on extra points. Folk, 32, played the last seven seasons with the New York Jets, and he played the first three seasons of his career with the Dallas Cowboys. He has connected on 81.3 percent of his career field goal attempts.
Aguayo signed with the Chicago Bears, and it will be intriguing to monitor the Bucs’ kicking situation throughout the season.
