Buccaneers release kicker Roberto Aguayo after Friday misses

Last Updated: Saturday, August 12, 2017

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Saturday that the team has waived kicker Roberto Aguayo.

In his rookie season with the Buccaneers, Aguayo went 22-of-31 on field goal attempts and 32-of-34 on extra point attempts.

The Bucs traded up in the 2016 draft to pick the former Florida State kicker, who made more than 96 percent of his kicks in college.

But after an up-and-down debut season, Aguayo missed an extra point and a 47-year-old field goal in Friday's preseason opener at Cincinnati.

Veteran Nick Folk kicked a 45-yard-field goal Friday night.
