Former FSU K Roberto Aguayo Released by Bucs

Former FSU K Roberto Aguayo Released by Bucs

The former star Florida State kicker was, stunningly, taken in the second round of the draft by Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers released Aguayo Saturday, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. Add to that a missed extra point and missed field goal in the first preseason game - while Folk was one-for-one with a 45 yarder, longer than any of Aguayo's makes last season - and the writing was on the wall.

Aguayo also stunk it up in the early going previous year, missing an extra point in the Bucs' first preseason game and two field goals in their second. "Perfect" never missed an extra point, going 198-of-198. He struggled as a rookie, connecting on only 71 percent of his field goals. He was a consensus All-American in 2014 and won the Lou Groza Award in 2013.

Tampa traded a third-round (74th overall) and fourth-round (106th) pick to Kansas City to move up to 59th overall to select Aguayo.

Aguayo was active in the Buccaneers' 23-12 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Friday at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.

Everton vs Stoke 12 Aug 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions
Before all that though, the Toffees at least get to start the league season at Goodison Park, versus Stoke City . Everton fans will be expecting their side to get off to a good start following a summer of heavy investment.

Aguayo made a 20-yard field goal for the Bucs in the game, but missed a 47-yard attempt and an extra point.

But following his release, if Nugent loses the Giants kicking battle to Aldrick Rosas, Janikowski may be the only one of the four who will be active when the 2017 National Football League regular season opens. "You're a kicker, you gotta make your kicks". "I'm blessed to be out here".

"He kicked off well but. that was a good situation for our competition (at the end)". I hit it good and it just started to fade. I did some good things.

The Buccaneers signed Folk in March.
