The Buccaneers traded into the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft in order to select Aguayo, but his only season with the team didn't go well, with the Florida State product missing nine of his 31 field-goal attempts. After failing to see any NFL action in 2017, he'll look to reboot his NFL career with the Chargers during the upcoming season, though Aguayo will likely face competition on that front. Specifically, the team still has Nick Rose under contract and veteran Nick Novak could also be brought back for what may become an open audition for the team's kicking job.
Aguayo was cut from the Panthers' practice squad Tuesday, Joe Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Aguayo was brought onto Carolina's practice squad in late October when Graham Gano was dealing with a knee issue. Gano never missed a contest because of the injury and hasn't missed a field goal since Week 5, so the Panthers decided to part ways with the former second-round pick. He'll now look to join his fourth different team this season.
The Panthers signed Aguayo to their practice squad Wednesday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.
The Panthers are optimistic that Graham Gano (knee) will be able to handle his usual kicking duties Sunday against the Buccaneers, but just for insurance purposes, the team worked out a number of kickers earlier this week. Of the participants, Aguayo evidently stood out the most, so his appointment to the Panthers' practice squad suggests he would be the team's top choice to kick in Week 8 if Gano is unable to go. A 2016 second-round pick of Tampa Bay, Aguayo was waived by the team in August after failing to show much improvement following an erratic rookie season. He joined the Bears shortly thereafter, but was waived at the conclusion of training camp after losing the job battle to Connor Barth.
Aguayo visited the Bears for a kicker tryout Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
It's been quiet for Aguayo since being cut by the Bears at the close of the preseason, but he had a chance to showcase himself Wednesday. Josh Lambo was also in for a tryout, and it's unclear at this point if Chicago is ready to move on from Connor Barth or are just making a point that he is currently kicking on thin ice.
The Bears waived Aguayo on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
For the second time in less than a month, the 2016 second-round selection was passed over for a veteran place kicker. In the case of Chicago, Connor Barth will serve in the role. Aguayo will thus be subject to waivers, but it remains to be seen if another organization will take a chance due to a lacking leg.
