Roberto Aguayo - the second round pick from 2015 - has been released per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. Immediately after they were ridiculed by everyone because no team ever takes a kicker that high in the draft.

Aguayo, whose 71 percent field goal percentage was the worst in the National Football League as a rookie, likely sealed his fate by missing and extra point and a 47-yard field goal attempt in Friday's preseason loss at Cincinnati.

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.

After quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick hit paydirt from six yards out to give Tampa its first touchdown, Aguayo lined up...and missed the extra point.

The Bucs have released embattled kicker Roberto Aguayo, bringing an end to a stint that began with a rookie season that saw the second-round pick serve largely as either a punchline or a punching bag.

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

"Honestly, the [extra point] felt good, " he said. "When I caught it, I knew I pushed it a little bit and I was like, 'hopefully it will stay in, ' but it hit the upright".

Bucs Dirk Koetter appeared to have lost all faith in Aguayo after Friday's game. Unlucky. And the last one, I was trying to get a good hit on it.

"You know, I keep saying it, I can't say it anymore", Koetter said. I want to change this. I hit it good. 'Well, this guy said I could get 5 more yards.' I said, 'Did any of those guys make 23 of 24 or 25 of 26 or whatever the heck you did and win the Groza?' I said, 'Why are you listening to them? Obviously not up to the standards that I want.

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