    I read “Aguayo rebounds” and I was half expecting to see him catch a ball that doinked off the goalpost.

  2. 3


    Lol on the rebound remark. Folk is going to be our kicker. I think if it’s close at all they take the vet over the inconsistent Aguayo. Could be wrong but we will see.

    Roberto Aguayo might be the worst draft pick in NFL history, please get rid of this guy. The worst kicker in the league last year, worst kicker in camp this year and with suspect leg strength lol. The only reason this is a competition is because he was foolishly drafted in the 2nd round. The only way we have a legit kicker battle is if we replace Aguayo and give Folk some real competition.

    1. 4.1


      Aguayo is not even the Bucs’ worse draft pick. Picking Bo Jackson when he said he would not sign is the worse. That was a #1 overall pick.

      But Aguayo was a stupid pick even if he turns out to be decent. Folk shows how easy it is to pick up a FA kicker.

    2. 4.2


      We traded up into the 2nd round to get a downgrade at kicker. Bo at least had talent so we took a very dumb risk but at least it would’ve made the team better. the return never outweighed the risk and on a rebuilding team it was stupid then and even worse now.

  4. 5


    Thinking outside the box… what if we sent Mr. Aguayo to the practice squad to let em get his spit together while Folk keeps us in games this season. I didn’t like that we picked him in the 2nd round, but it’s even worse if we gain nothing from that pick!

  5. 6


    How did Aguayo rebound? At this point it seems all but certain that Folk will be our kicker this year. If we cut Aguayo do we get a compensatory pick? Or are we better off leaving him on the practice squad and hoping for a miraculous turn around?

    1. 6.1


      No, no comp pick. Guys teams cut aren’t accounted for in the compensatory pick formula.

  6. 7


    If we were a team building for the future still we wouldn’t have brought in fitzpatrick. This team is ready to win now. Berto’s misses yesterday, and even just his one miss today could’ve resulted in two losses. Folk was perfect, not much else to say.
