Buccaneers and Roberto Aguayo come to terms

Last but not least. On Tuesday the Buccaneers came to terms with rookie kicker Roberto Aguyao on a four year deal.

Aguyao was selected 59th overall out of Florida State where he finishes his career as the most accurate kicker in NCAA history, connecting on 267-276 kicks attempted (.9673), surpassing the previous record of .9667, set by former Nebraska kicker Alex Henery. Aguayo earned first team All-American honors all three seasons he played, joining Deion Sanders as the only two players in school history to do so. The Mascotte , Florida native won the Lou Groza Award as a redshirt freshman in 2013, was a finalist in 2014 and a semi finalist in 2015.



Aguayo is primed to be the Buccaneers kicker from day one, providing a unique weapon on kickoffs, as well as a squeaky clean record on extra points and kicks from NFL hashmarks. He is the last Buccaneer draft pick to sign his contract, and rounds out what should be a third straight quality draft class for the team.
