As his struggles extend from games to practices, Buccaneers kicker Roberto Aguayo is starting to hear it from his team’s fans.
After some more kicking issues, Aguayo was booed by fans during a joint practice with the Browns on Tuesday. The second-round pick missed three of his six kicks, including one from 35 yards and two from 45.
The Buccaneers traded up to draft Aguayo earlier this off-season, a move that was described as unconventional at best at the time.
A three-time first-team All American at Florida State, Aguayo made 88.5% of his kicks in college, never failing to convert inside 40 yards. During his first NFL preseason, he’s missed two kicks and an extra point.
Aguayo is working hard on correcting his kicking issues, reportedly reaching out to former kicker Ryan Longwell, former Bucs special-teams coordinator Bill Miller and a mental coach for guidance.
