The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released kicker Connor Barth, the team announced Monday.

Barth played in 12 games for the Buccaneers last season, making 23 of his 28 field goal attempts and 25 of 26 extra points. The Buccaneers selected kicker Roberto Aguayo during the second round of the NFL draft, making Barth expendable. 

This is the third straight season Barth has been cut in favor of another kicker. His first stint with Tampa Bay ended in 2014 after the team signed Patrick Murray, and last August he was released when the Broncos opted to keep Brandon McManus.

Tampa Bay surprised many when selecting Aguayo. The Buccaneers traded up 15 spots in the second round to select the kicker, trading away two picks in order to move up.
