Buccaneers waive second-year kicker Roberto Aguayo

Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Roberto Aguayo is seen during the second day of training camp at One Buccaneer Place in Tampa Fla. on Saturday

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.

He is one of only four kickers in the last 26 years to be drafted in the top two rounds, joining current Giant Mike Nugent (Jets, 2005, 47th overall), the Raiders' Sebastian Janikowski (2000, 17th overall) and retired Lions mainstay Jason Hanson (1992, 56th overall).

In Friday night's preseason game, Aguayo missed a crucial field goal as well as an extra point attempt in a game that played a vital role in determining Aguayo's fate and future with the franchise.

Aguayo also stunk it up in the early going a year ago, missing an extra point in the Bucs' first preseason game and two field goals in their second. He never missed an extra point attempt either. Aguayo struggled in 2015 missing, five of 26 field goals in his final season.

The Bucs have been criticized by national NFL analysts for selecting Aguayo with a second-round pick in the 2016 draft.

Bigg Boss Tamil hosted by Kamal Haasan has reached its seventh week in which seven contestants were nominated for elimination. He alleged they had driven her to attempt suicide and telecast the same to gain TRP ratings.

The unfortunate reality is that the pick is looking increasingly like a massive failure, because Robert Aguayo just doesn't make his kicks.

"Honestly, the [extra point] felt good, " he said.

Coach Dirk Koetter said it's something that will "definitely be talked about". Unlucky. And the last one, I was trying to get a good hit on it. I had a field goal in there but at the end of the day, it wasn't what I wanted. I want to change this.

"You know, I keep saying it, I can't say it anymore", Koetter said. I've just got to put it in the past. I want to change that. I hit it good and it just started to fade. You're a kicker. You gotta make your kicks.
