Panthers Cut K Roberto Aguayo

Roberto Aguayo‘s NFL journey will continue elsewhere. The Panthers have released the former second-round kicker from the practice squad, as Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer tweets. In related practice squad moves, the team has also cut running back Jalen Simmons while signing tight end Kent Taylor and wide receiver Rasheed BaileyRoberto Aguayo (vertical)

The Buccaneers gave up on their investment in Aguayo after a dreadful rookie season. When the Bucs cut him in the summer, the Bears (for some reason) claimed him off waivers and assumed his contract. In September, the Bears threw in the towel on the FSU product and put themselves on the hook for upwards of $400K in guaranteed salary.

In 2016, Aguayo, made only 22-of-31 field goal attempts (71%) and missed two extra points. It was a huge disappointment for the Bucs, particularly since they traded up to draft him.

    I still will never understand why the Bucs not only drafted him in the 2nd round but traded up to get him. You’re definitely right, he’s been a huge disappointment. Can’t help but wish the guy the best of luck but he may have to wait a while before he finds a job again.

    For some reason? Yeah, the reason is because they’re the Bears! Depressing.……
