Unafraid to admit their mistake, the Bucs have released beleaguered place-kicker Roberto Aguayo just a little over a year after taking him in the second round. Aguayo struggled in 2015 missing, five of 26 field goals in his final season.
The former Seminole's second National Football League season hasn't started off very well, either.
During the regular season, Aguayo's kicking was sporadic. The former second-round pick is going to have to turn it around quickly if he wants to secure the job.
The NFL collapse is shocking for those who watched Aguayo throughout his time at Florida State.
"Honestly, the (extra point) felt good, " Aguayo said. I hit it good and it just started to fade. I want to change this. "You just have to keep your head up move on to the next day".
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".
FSU coach Jimbo Fisher suggested previous year changes to Aguayo's kicking routine may have contributed to his inconsistency. 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".
Bucs coach Dirk Koetter is getting fed up with Aguayo's misses.
"When you get bored doing something, 'well there's more I can do". "You know, I keep saying it, I can't say it anymore".
