Bucs waive K Aguayo after preseason misses

Bears make room for K Roberto Aguayo place WR Reuben Randle on IR

For as great of a kicker as he was in the ACC for the Florida State Seminoles, Roberto Aguayo was anything but that for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after getting picked in the second round of the draft.

Aguayo missed two field goals in Friday night's preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, 23-12.

In his rookie season, Aguayo made only 22 of 31 field-goal attempts and 32 of 34 extra-point attempts. He went 22-for-31 on field goals during his rookie campaign and missed a pair of PATs, which was a far cry from being almost automatic during his collegiate days.

With Aguayo's release, the Buccaneers will use veteran kicker #Nick Folk, whom they signed to a contract with a guaranteed $750,000 to provide competition in the offseason.

Petroleo Brasileiro SA- Petrobras (NYSE:PBR) closed with a change of -0.56%
It dived, as 135 investors sold CVS shares while 627 reduced holdings. 102 funds opened positions while 164 raised stakes. Whereas, in last 21 trading days (one month) was surged 10.07% and plunged in last 63 trading days (quarter) of -8.86%.

"You've got to enjoy it, you've got to embrace it", Aguayo told reporters on August 4 when asked about the competition. Many have called for it and it looks like Jason Licht and Dirk Koetter have had enough. Aside from his struggles with accuracy, Aguayo also showed little range in his kicks, with his longest field goal coming from 43 yards. Unlucky. And the last one, I was trying to get a good hit on it. I hit it good. He was then brought out late in the fourth quarter for a 47-yard field goal attempt. I want to change this. It was starting down the line and it just kept fading. Obviously, not up to the standards that I want.

Asked if he thought he may have cost himself a job with Friday's performance, Aguayo said, "You wanted to come out and be flawless". I had a field goal in there but at the end of the day, it wasn't what I wanted. I've just got to put it in the past.

It's an unfortunate end for Aguayo but there is one thing at the very top of his job description he didn't do and that was make kicks. "It's a new day".

But it turned out to be his last in a Bucs uniform.
