Roberto Aguayo Missed His First Extra Point Of The Season

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Saturday that they have waived second-year kicker Roberto Aguayo.

Roberto Aguayo converted 1-of-2 field goals and missed an extra point in the Bucs' preseason opener.

One year later and Aguayo looks like he's in similar form after he shanked yet another extra point in the Bucs first preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday. But Aguayo's now facing an uphill battle to make the roster-the Bucs' other kicker, Nick Folk, knocked in his only kick of the night, a 45-yarder.

Agauyo's first miss of the night came on a second-quarter extra point that clanked off the upright.

"I keep saying it and I can't say it anymore. If you're a kicker, you've got to make your kicks". Unlucky", Aguayo said. "That last one, I was just trying to put a good hit on it.

"Like I remember I told him as a sophomore, remember I told you in the spring he wasn't kicking really good".

FSU coach Jimbo Fisher suggested a year ago changes to Aguayo's kicking routine may have contributed to his inconsistency. I want to change this. You just have to keep your head up and move onto the next day. Obviously, not up to the standards that I want.

Asked if he thought he may have cost himself a job with Friday's performance, Aguayo said, "You wanted to come out and be ideal". And while he recovered a bit in the regular season - his 94 percent success rate on extra points was right at the league average - he still hit just 22 of 31 field goal attempts, his 71 percent success rate putting him at the bottom of the NFL's kicking list. I hit some good kickoffs. 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. "It's a new day".
