Robert Aguayo had a pretty bad season there is no doubt in that.
Making only 71% of his field goals placed him in the bottom of the NFL and justified many of our fan’s belief that moving up in the second round to draft him, was a horrible idea. Aguayo was basically handed the starting job with minimal competition, and for his performance in 2016, he will have to earn the starting job in 2017.
Head coach Dirk Koetter stands by the Bucs decision to move up in last year’s draft to select Aguayo, but he also knows that Tampa’s field goal percentage was not good enough in 2016. Aguayo’s job being on the line comes as no to surprise to anyone.
Koetter made it perfectly clear that there will be competition in the kicking position and as well as in every position. Koetter also made it clear that there is no problem moving on from a drafted player and playing an undrafted player who can get the job done. Remember ASJ?
