Chargers signed K Roberto Aguayo to a reserve/future contract.
Aguayo will always be remembered for being the Bucs' failed second-round pick in 2016 as a massive reach. He flamed out quickly in Tampa Bay, lasting just one season before being cut at the end of last summer. Aguayo spent time with the Bears and Panthers this past season but didn't attempt a kick. The Chargers have big concerns at kicker and will give Aguayo a shot. Jan 10 - 1:03 PM

Panthers signed K Roberto Aguayo to their practice squad.

Aguayo worked out for the Panthers on Tuesday, along with fellow kickers Andrew Franks, Jason Myers, and Younghoe Koo, so Aguayo's workout must have been the best. He'll be insurance for Graham Gano (knee) in case Gano is unable to kick this week. Aguayo was out of the league the first seven weeks.

Free agent K Roberto Aguayo is working out for the Panthers on Tuesday.

It is the first we have heard from Aguayo since he was waived by the Bears at final cuts. With Graham Gano slowed by a knee injury, the Panthers also worked out Younghoe Koo, Andrew Franks, and Mike Meyer on Tuesday.

Bears waived K Roberto Aguayo.

Chicago claimed Aguayo off waivers three weeks ago. Taking a chance on a former second-round pick made sense, but Aguayo missed his only in-game attempt. He may need some time away from the game to clear his head.

Bears claimed K Roberto Aguayo off waivers from the Buccaneers.

At no charge, the Bears will take a look at Aguayo for the remainder of camp and preseason, where he will compete with Connor Barth. Aguayo was the worst kicker in football as a rookie last year, and the Bucs cut the cord on him after Aguayo missed an extra point and a 47-yard field goal try in their preseason opener. Aguayo was the 59th overall pick in last year's NFL draft.

Bucs waived 2016 second-round K Roberto Aguayo.

Aguayo will go down as one of the worst second-round picks in history, especially since Tampa traded up to get him. At least the Bucs didn't fall into a sunk-cost pit. Not ready for prime-time right from the start, Aguayo struggled last preseason before converting just 71 percent of his attempts and missing two extra points as a rookie. Aguayo's fate was sealed after he claimed to be "unlucky" to miss a PAT and a field goal in Friday's preseason opener. Clearly in need of time to clear his head, Aguayo will likely slip through waivers unclaimed.

Roberto Aguayo converted 1-of-2 field goals and missed an extra point in the Bucs' preseason opener.

Aguayo pinged the extra point attempt off the uprights -- he called the miss "unlucky" after the game -- and missed the field goal attempt wide right. The second-round sophomore has a legitimate chance of losing his job if he doesn't start to perform. Brought in to push him, veteran Nick Folk outperformed Aguayo on Friday, making his only field goal attempt from 45 yards out. Coach Dirk Koetter said it's something that will "definitely be talked about." Aguayo looks to be skating on thin ice.

Buccaneers K Roberto Aguayo has outperformed Nick Folk through the first week of training camp.

Aguayo drilled all seven of his attempts during Friday's session while the veteran Folk missed at least three kicks with all of them going wide right. "[He was] lights out," said coach Dirk Koetter. "Yeah, he was money." Aguayo enjoyed a prolific college career at Florida State but labored through a difficult rookie season, prompting Tampa Bay to bring in competition this offseason. The 2016 second-rounder has a clear leg up on Folk, but remains a risky fantasy endeavor after last year's debacle.

Bucs K Roberto Aguayo connected on just 5-of-9 field goal attempts during two OTA practices open to the media last week.

Competitor Nick Folk went 9-for-9 on kicks all from the same distance. Tampa Bay Times reporter Rick Stroud is skeptical Aguayo will be a part of the Bucs' 2017 roster, just one year after GM Jason Licht traded up to draft him in the second round. Whereas Aguayo managed a league-low 71 percent field goal rate as a rookie, Folk is a lifetime 81.3-percent kicker.

Buccaneers GM Jason Licht said K Roberto Aguayo "needs to have a great camp" to make the team.

"We will do everything we can to bring in the best competition at that position," said Licht. "I think Dirk [Koetter] even said he’s not locked into this roster." A 2016 second-round reach, Aguayo is on notice after making just 71 percent of his kicks as a rookie. Pewter Report's Scott Reynolds suggests the Bucs could bring in free agent Steven Hauschka to compete with Aguayo.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter expects K Roberto Aguayo to face competition in 2017.

That's No. 59 overall pick Roberto Aguayo. It's an easily-mockable situation, but probably ultimately just coachspeak. Aguayo really settled down as the year progressed before shanking two Week 17 kicks. Barring a camp meltdown, Aguayo will keep his job next year.

Robert Aguayo made 3-of-5 field goals in the Bucs' 17-14, Week 5 win over the Panthers, including the game-winning 38-yarder as time expired.

This was truly a horrific football game. Jameis Winston couldn't make any difficult throws, missed easy ones on top of it, and forced balls to Mike Evans in double-coverage. The Panthers turned the ball over four times. Aguayo had another nightmare game before getting what should be a confidence boost by nailing the winning kick. Before that, he banged one off the right upright from 33 yards out in the first quarter and missed wide left on a 46-yarder in the fourth frame. Aguayo is now 4-of-8 on field goals this season and 8-of-9 on extra points. If not for his draft status, he likely would have been cut last month.

Bucs second-round K Roberto Aguayo converted on field goals of 48 yards, 21 yards, and 27 yards Friday night against the Browns.

He was also a perfect 3-for-3 on extra point attempts. Aguayo has had a rough go since the Bucs laughably traded up for him in the second round, so he needed this strong performance to get back on track. It is not Aguayo's fault the Bucs spent so much to get him, but he will likely have to cope with unrealistic expectations for at least the next several seasons.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter believes second-round K Roberto Aguayo's struggles are mental.

"I think [the struggles are mental] and I think he believes that," Koetter said. "We've talked to him. He knows what he has to do." The best kicker in the nation throughout his college career, a mental block is the only reason for Aguayo to be struggling as much as he is. The embattled kicker missed three more kicks in practice Tuesday, but Koetter said the team is not yet looking to bring in competition.

Bucs second-round K Roberto Aguayo admits his confidence is shaken "a little bit" after missing two field goals and an extra point through two preseason games.

Aguayo is seeking outside help, conversing with longtime NFL K Ryan Longwell, ex-Bucs special teams coach Bill Miller, and a "mental coach." Aguayo never missed a field goal attempt under 40 yards in college, but has missed from 32 and 49 this summer. Aguayo should be fine, but the early returns on the trade up into the second round by GM Jason Licht aren't positive.
