Bills ship Watkins to the Rams?
Not a great way to bolster your young QBs confidence.

Have you been going to any of the Indivisible Edina meetings? I signed up to get their e-mails, with the intention of attending, but I haven't yet.

TAMPA, Fla. - After a disastrous start to the preseason, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have waived kicker Roberto Aguayo.

Aguayo missed an extra point in the second quarter against the Cincinnati Bengals Friday night. He was then brought out late in the fourth quarter on a 47-yard attempt. The ball sailed wide right.

His one made field goal was a 20-yard kick on the Bucs' opening possession.

"Honestly, the extra point felt good. I know I pushed it a little bit, and I felt hopefully it would stay in but it broke right. Unlucky," Aguayo said after the game. "That last one, I was just trying to put a good hit on it. I hit it good. It was starting down the line and it just kept fading. Not what I wanted. Obviously not up to the standards that I want. You just have to keep your head up move on to the next day."

Veteran Nick Folk, who was brought in to push and possibly beat out Aguayo, made his lone attempt from 45 yards.

The Bucs traded into the second round of the 2016 draft to select Aguayo, making him the highest-drafted kicker since mike Nugent in 2005.

Aguayo had made 96.73 percent of his kicks at Florida State - the most accurate of any kicker in college football history.

Aguayo struggled his rookie season though, going 22-of-31 on field goal attempts and 32-of-34 on extra points. His 71 percent on field goals was the lowest of any kicker in the NFL.


That's been painful to watch.

Amazing story. To trade up into the 2nd round for a kicker is shocking enough. Then to cut him after one season....

Watched a couple games of theirs last year, and you could literally FEEL the pressure on him.
It was a doomed story from the start, and very uncomfy to watch.

Comments that Ezekial Elliott "needs to mature" are a perfect example of the problem we have with domestic abuse.

If he is guilty of abusing his girlfriend several times this is not a maturity issue - it is a criminal and mental health issue!

Boys don't beat their girlfriends and then "mature" as men and stop doing it.

My sources informed me that Hoisflamer was the driving force behind that trade/pick. "We have to throw all our resources at PK. Early and late."
