    I know so people won’t agree with this,but why not bring Roberto in for a look.
    He has been cut by 2 teams know. I would think he has learned from it.
    I never thought I would say this but he was better than Folk and he would like to redeem himself. The Bucs might get the kicker that they thought he would be.

    1. 2.1


      You must be a true lifetime Bucs fan like myself who has watched multiple QB’s get released and then go to another team and win Super Bowls. It is hard to believe that this guy could go from the most accurate kicker in NCAA history to the worst in the NFL. Although he might just not be able to handle the pressure of the NFL spotlight. So even though I understand your thinking I don’t think it is worth the media attention he would create if they brought him back

    2. 2.2


      Sorry, Buc 1976 – Aguayo has already failed, I cannot imagine Licht and Koetter agreeing to do that, they would lose all credibility.

        Credibility ? Just win BABY!!

    3. 2.3


      too much baggage with aguayo. one miss could start a tailspin for both the kicker, the team, and especially the fans. you need someone that everyone can have a bit of a clean slate with. Murray has no bad history here, santos is an extremely reliable guy capable of being a long term answer and is on the streets mainly due to timing. nugent and Lambo are both available because they didn’t do their jobs well enough, they might be better than going back to folk but not better than some of the other options they are working on

      might be worth burning a roster spot on Santos for a couple weeks while he heals, he might have been KC’s kicker for the next 5 years if they didn’t need to have such a short term focus to maximize their chance at a Superbowl

      1. 2.3.1

        Buc 1976

        I thought he did very well here before. He has a Smooth compact swing.

    1. 3.1


      Sign Cairo now, sign one of the other kickers for a 2-3 week tryout, and if he does great, keep him and if not, then let Cairo. have a shot after he’s healthy. In any case, Folk is done in Tampa.

    2. 3.2


      seems like he did nothing to lose his job besides getting hurt at the wrong time for a team with extreme urgency to win home field advantage. could be the multi-year answer they wanted aguayo to be. after investing so much in aguayo to be rid of this kicker carousel, it could be worth demoting a peyton barber for a few weeks to potentially have your long term kicker afterwards

  2. 4


    Sign 2 or 3, whatever it takes.

  3. 5


    Santos is the longterm solution

  4. 6


    The way I see it is you changed the point after distance, shortened the kickoff field to create fewer runbacks and as a result altered the traditional kicker profile. Aquayo came into the league and couldn’t adjust, not to mention the pressure we put on him taking him in the 2nd round. Folk is an old-timer who can’t adapt to a new system. It seems when you keep 2 they focus on the competition soooooo, I would 1) find a UDFA who doesn’t have to worry about his reputation, 2) get a youngster that is not affected by rule changes, and 3) keep two on the roster to focus on competition. This position produces points and unfortunately we have lost an important game already this year and a bid for the playoffs last year. This is a priority and unlike past years must be addressed like a RB, or WR.

    Bring back Patrick Murray! He’s got the leg, accuracy, and definitely has the proper ‘kicker’s mentality’
