Kicker Roberto Aguayo was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after he was taken in the second round just one year ago. HBO’s Hard Knocks was around to capture it all, including teammates calling his misses:
Aguayo — the former Florida State kicker — was waived by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday after he missed two kicks in the team’s first preseason game. The release comes after Aguayo had a sub-par rookie year and was already on thin ice heading into the season.
With the release, ESPN’s Trey Wingo is now proclaiming that Aguayo is one of the worst NFL Draft picks of all time, as the second round pick only made it one year with the team that drafted him.
Aguayo’s lack of success in the NFL is so perplexing since he was such a standout at Florida State. Aguayo missed nine field goal attempts last season along in Tampa after missing only nine in his entire three-year tenure at Florida State. Aguayo has also missed several extra-points with the Buccaneers, including both regular season and preseason.
Aguayo only connected on 71 percent of his kicks in 2016 for the Bucs.
He was picked up by the Chicago Bears off the waiver wire.
