Bucs give up on failed 2nd-round K Aguayo
12 August 2017
Bucs waived 2016 second-round K Roberto Aguayo.
Aguayo will go down as one of the worst second-round picks in recent memory, especially since Tampa traded up to get him, but good on the Bucs for not falling into a sunk-cost pit. Not ready for prime-time right from the start, Aguayo struggled last preseason before converting just 71 percent of his attempts and missing two extra points as a rookie. His fate was likely sealed after he claimed to be "unlucky" to miss a PAT and a field goal in the preseason opener. Clearly in need of time to clear his head, Aguayo will likely slip through waivers unclaimed.
