Buccaneers Release Former Second-Round Pick Roberto Aguayo

After a disastrous start to the preseason, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived kicker Roberto Aguayo. I know I pushed it a little bit, and I felt hopefully it would stay in but it broke right. "Unlucky", Aguayo said after the game.

Then on second-and-10 with 1:10 remaining in the 23-12 loss, Aguayo was sent out to attempt a 47-yard field goal. "You just have to keep your head up move on to the next day". Obviously, not up to the standards that I want. It was the first time a kicker had been drafted that high since the New York Jets took Mike Nugent 47th overall in 2005.

Aguayo's one shining moment came in Week 11 against Kansas City Chiefs (ironically the team the Bucs traded with to draft Aguayo), where he hit all four of his field goal attempts in 19-17 victory.

"You wanted to come out and be ideal". I hit some good kickoffs. I've just got to put it in the past.

Aguayo also stunk it up in the early going a year ago, missing an extra point in the Bucs' first preseason game and two field goals in their second. He made 32 of 34 extra points last season. He only made 22 of his 31 field goal attempts (71 percent) and his career-long make was only 43 yards.

One year later and Aguayo looks like he's in similar form after he shanked yet another extra point in the Bucs first preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday.
