The Buccaneers have their share of characters that only spent one year in town. 

There are plenty of players that only spent one year with the Buccaneers during their careers. Tampa Bay has been a historically bad team at drafting and evaluating free agents, and this has led to many players departing after just a season.

In addition to missing on key additions at a horrific rate, Tampa Bay has struggled to put forth a consistent product, which also leads to free agents leaving after just a season.

Fortunately, the Buccaneers are now in a great position due to great draft classes and a favorable free-agent market, but it is still worth looking back at some of the most memorable players who only stayed for one season.

Player #1

Roberto Aguayo, kicker, 2016

Roberto Aguayo is the worst draft pick in Buccaneer history and could go down as the worst all-time. Fans will point to first-round picks that flamed out early, but none were kickers.

The Buccaneers drafted a kicker long before anyone ever should (kickers should never be drafted for any reason), and the expectations were monstrous for a second-round pick.

As we all know, Aguayo couldn’t kick to save his life for the majority of the season, and the Bucs decided to cut bait after a single year.

While we would all like to remember our “one-hit wonders” as hits rather than misses, Aguayo shows that only playing one season is enough time to leave a lasting legacy, good or bad.
