Foxborg, Massachusetts – kicker Roberto Aguayo, Who was knocked out of the NFL for nearly three full seasons after entering the league as a draft option for the second round of Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2016, is trying to revive his career as coach of the New England Patriots.
A source told ESPN’s Field Yates that the club plans to sign Aguayo on Saturday.
Aguayo’s career took a dramatic turn after Buccaneers picked him up with the No. 59 overall pick in 2016. He was widely acclaimed for exiting Florida, scoring 198 points after attempts and 69 of 78 field shots. He was the best player picked in the draft since the New York Jets took over Mike Nugent In the second round in 2005 (No. 47 overall).
Aguayo scored 22 out of 31 in field goals as a rookie, struggling significantly late in the season, and then Buccaneers signed on to the veteran Nick Falk Off-season to compete for the top position. People won the job in the 2017 preparatory season; He is currently a Patriots soccer player and in the midst of a year of his career at the age of 36.
The Chicago Bears claimed Aguayo in 2017 but was released less than a month later, and spent six weeks of the 2017 season on the Carolina Panthers coaching team. He spent the offseason 2018 and pre-season with Los Angeles Chargers but was released at the end of the pre-season, and has been out of league since then.
In New England, Folk is a free post-season agent. The Patriots also have a selection for the fifth round of 2020 Justin Rohrwasser In their coaching team, and Aguayo’s addition could be an indication that Rohrwasser’s development has not gone as smoothly as the club had envisioned.
