Report: Bears Claim Former Bucs Kicker Roberto Aguayo Off Waivers

Roberto Aguayo was released by the Buccaneers on Saturday, and according to ESPN, he was picked up by the Bears on Sunday.

Kicker Roberto Aguayo was claimed off waivers by the Chicago Bears, according to Field Yates of ESPN.

The 2016 second-round pick was released by the Buccaneers on Saturday after missing an extra point and a 47-yard field goal in their preseason opener Friday.

In Aguayo's rookie season he went 22-of-31 on field goal attempts and 32-of-34 on extra points. On kicks from 40 to 49 yards, he went just four-of-10.

Last year Bears kicker Connor Barth went 18-of-23 on field goals and 31-of-32 on extra points.
