Buccaneers cut ties with kicker Roberto Aguayo

Former Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday afternoon. It was the earliest a kicker had been taken since Mike Nugent went 47th in 2005, and it's certainly unorthodox to take a specialist that early. After reports of him struggling in practice surfaced during the 2016 offseason, Aguayo missed his first kick of the preseason, an extra point, and then missed two field goals later in the preseason. Less than a day after the kicker missed a field and PAT in the Buccaneers' 23-12 preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the team announced they had waived him.

But as a rookie, he missed a league-leading nine field goals as well as two extra points.

The placekicker actually got the game started with an opening-drive chip-shot field goal from 20 yards out.

However, in the exchange of fire, Naib Subedar Jagram Singh Tomar was grievously injured and later succumbed to his injuries. One woman was killed in Pakistan shelling along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Medhar sector early on Saturday.

The Bucs have released embattled kicker Roberto Aguayo, bringing an end to a stint that began with a rookie season that saw the second-round pick serve largely as either a punchline or a punching bag.

During the regular season, Aguayo's kicking was sporadic. I know I pushed it a little bit, and I felt hopefully it would stay in but it broke right.

"Well, that's something that will definitely be talked about, " Koetter said, per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. Unlucky. And the last one, I was trying to get a good hit on it. You're a kicker. You gotta make your kicks. Not what I wanted. 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. Obviously not up to the standards that I want. I hit it good.
