Roberto Aguayo Released by Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released kicker Roberto Aguayo, the organization's second-round selection in the 2016 draft, on Saturday after continued struggles early in his NFL career.

Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times was the first to report the news, and the Bucs later confirmed, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Aguayo missed an extra-point attempt and a 47-yard field goal Friday during a 23-12 preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Aguayo became the first kicker drafted inside the first two rounds since the New York Jets took Mike Nugent with the 47th overall pick in 2005. Although taking a specialist that early comes with an inherit risk, and in this case it didn't pay off, the gamble was understandable.
