The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Saturday that they have waived second-year kicker Roberto Aguayo.
The Bucs have been criticized by national NFL analysts for selecting Aguayo with a second-round pick in the 2016 draft.
In his rookie season, Aguayo was 22-for-31 on field-goal attempts and 32-for-34 on extra-point attempts. In Friday’s preseason opener against the Cincinnati Bengals, Aguayo was 1-for-2 on field goals, making a 20-yarder but missing a 47-yarder. He also missed his only extra-point attempt.
Nick Folk, who was signed in the offseason to compete with Aguayo, made his only field-goal attempt Friday night, a 45-yarder.
