Buccaneers Most Disappointing Players of the 2016 Season
The most disappointing Bucs player for the 2016 season has to be kicker Roberto Aguayo.
Now… where to start. Well first of all, general manager Jason Licht decided to trade back into the second round of the draft to select statistically the best kicker in the history of the NCAA and that sounds great… but he’s still just a kicker. This isn’t the first time a kicker has been drafted high, especially one from Florida State, and that’s beyond me.
The high draft pick had issues from the start of season. The first kick of his professional career, he missed. Chalk that up to nerves or whatever you may like, and that’s fine. It didn’t stop there and his struggles continued to a point where his own teammates were praying for him to make a field goal in a week five matchup versus the Carolina Panthers. Jameis Winston, Gerald McCoy and others were seen huddling praying together on the sidelines.
Really? Week five?
Six misses from beyond 40 yards, a long of 43 yards, and the lowest overall kicking percentage in the league. Bring on the competition.
