Tampa Bay Buccaneers cut kicker Roberto Aguayo

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cut kicker Roberto Aguayo

Tampa Bay selected Aguayo with the No. 59 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Florida State.

Aguayo, whose 71 percent field goal percentage was the worst in the National Football League as a rookie, likely sealed his fate by missing and extra point and a 47-yard field goal attempt in Friday's preseason loss at Cincinnati. That was the worst total among the 30 kickers to attempt at least 20 field goals in 2016, and the third-worst among any kicker since 2000.

Aguayo sat alone for a few minutes after dressing at his locker following Friday's game. Aguayo will look for a fresh start elsewhere, while Nick Folk takes over the kicking responsibilities for the Bucs. He then tried to spin it by saying both kicks felt good off his foot, which doesn't really count for much when you consider that both missed.

Aguayo missed an extra point on his first preseason kick, hitting the left upright, but he would go 8-for-10 on field goals and 7-for-7 on extra points the rest of the preseason. Not what I wanted. I've done big things throughout my career and I know that I'm capable of doing that and capable of being here. He connected on 23 of 24 field goals during the Seminoles' national title run in 2013 and was a Groza award finalist in 2014 after converting 27 of 30 field goals. On Friday night, he continued his struggles by missing two kicks in the Bucs' preseason opener, including an extra point.

"When you get bored doing something, 'well there's more I can do". "You just have to keep your head up move on to the next day". "It's a new day".

"You've got to enjoy it, you've got to embrace it", Aguayo told reporters on August 4 when asked about the competition.
