Bucs' Roberto Aguayo is missing kicks again

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived Roberto Aguayo, a second-round pick who struggled to perform in the National Football League after a record-setting career at Florida State. His fate was likely sealed after he claimed to be "unlucky" to miss a point-after try and a field goal in the preseason opener.

Aguayo missed a point-after attempt Friday night and was 1-for-2 on field goal attempts, making a 20-yard chip shot, but missing a 47-yard attempt late in the game.

FSU coach Jimbo Fisher suggested past year changes to Aguayo's kicking routine may have contributed to his inconsistency. He also missed two extra points.

He now has the inside track at the starting job as the only kicker on the active roster.

Avoid bomb flash: Guam issues emergency guidelines for potential nuclear attack
It's not the first time North Korea has threatened Guam, which is a crucial, strategic hub for USA forces in the Pacific. The Korea Herald wrote in an editorial on Friday that Seoul needed nuclear weapons to defend itself against the North.

That uncertainty led to the Bucs signing of Folk, who had been cut by the Jets in part because he was due to make $3-million in 2017. He made 32 of 34 extra points last season. "Got in field goal range and the chance to kick one, go for an onside kick and, just, you'd like to keep your chances alive as long as you can to be in the game and that just ended our chances". I want to change this.

"Like I remember I told him as a sophomore, remember I told you in the spring he wasn't kicking really good". Obviously, not up to the standards that I want. "You just have to keep your head up move on to the next day". But at the end of the day, I know what I'm capable of doing. I did some good things.

"When you get bored doing something, 'well there's more I can do".

But it turned out to be his last in a Bucs uniform. Coach Dirk Koetter said it's something that will "definitely be talked about".
