Roberto Aguayo waived by Buccaneers after bad preseason game

He won the Lou Groza Award in 2013, the same year that Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston led Florida State to the BCS National Championship over Auburn.

The second-year kicker had three chances to impress against Cincinnati, but he missed an extra point early in the game and a 47-yard field goal attempt with one minute left in the fourth quarter. Although it was his only attempt, Folk's kick was two yards further than Aguayo's longest field goal in 2016.

Aguayo sat alone for a few minutes after dressing at his locker following Friday's game.

City approach for Busquets?
It was a good test for us. "We are going to see at the end of the season what happens knowing how hard it is". We will maybe change one important player".

Nick Folk, the veteran brought in by the Bucs to compete with Aguayo this season, made a 45-yard field goal Friday night. He then tried to spin it by saying both kicks felt good off his foot, which doesn't really count for much when you consider that both missed.

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. Not what I wanted. He made 88.5 percent of his field goal tries, going 69-of-78.

He now has the inside track at the starting job as the only kicker on the active roster. I did some good things. But at the end of the day, I know what I'm capable of doing. "You just have to keep your head up move on to the next day".

Miami is now banking heavily on Jay Cutler , who was lured out of retirement with a one-year, $10-million contract. However, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Dolphins' "fear" was Tannehill would require season-ending surgery.

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

Aguayo was on notice after making just 22-of-31 field goal attempts as a rookie and missing two extra points.
