Did the Bucs make the right move by releasing Roberto Aguayo?

Aguayo endured a bumpy rookie season and didn't do enough early in training camp this season to keep his job.

Roberto Aguayo will now be packing up his bags and beginning his search for a new team after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers parted ways with him Saturday morning.

Aguayo missed his first kick vs the Philadelphia Eagles during a preseason game past year, and he was boo'd off the field by Bucs fans after missing more kicks during practice. Aguayo struggled in 2015 missing, five of 26 field goals in his final season. If Aguayo had made the kick, the Bucs would've cut Cincinnati's lead to just one score. The former second-round pick is going to have to turn it around quickly if he wants to secure the job. Not what I wanted.

The 32-year-old Folk spent the last seven seasons with the New York Jets (2010-16), converted 27 of 31 field goals (87.1 percent) in 2016, tied for sixth-best in the National Football League, while making 24 of 26 extra-point attempts.

The placekicker actually got the game started with an opening-drive chip-shot field goal from 20 yards out. Aguayo's longest made field goal previous year was just 43 yards.

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

Roberto Aguayo's rough rookie season convinced the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that a kicker competition in 2017 would be a good idea.

"When you get bored doing something, 'well there's more I can do". You're a kicker. You gotta make your kicks.

Nick Folk made a 45-yard field goal in the third quarter Friday, not only fueling frustration among Bucs fans but likely also hastening Aguayo's exit. I want to change that.
