It appears Buccaneers rookie Roberto Aguayo has got his groove back and just in time too.
In Tampa Bay’s third preseason game against Cleveland, Aguayo was a perfect 3-for-3 on extra points and field goals. Perfection followed him into the Bucs’ preseason finale against Washington, including a 50-yard field goal in a mini-tropical storm.
“I feel comfortable going now obviously with the weather—obviously you have to adapt, you have to do what you’ve got to do,” Aguayo said, according to The Tampa Bay Times.
Aguayo had struggle mightily prior to his outing against the Browns, missing chip shots and having meltdowns even in practice. Since he was a second-round draft pick, people were understandably wondering if Aguayo’s confidence was irreparable and if he would be one of the worst draft busts ever.
As the season gets underway, Bucs fans and, more importantly, Aguayo can breathe easier now that the most accurate kicker in college football history seems to have gotten his legs back under him.
