Former Buc Aguayo once called kicking in NFL 'easier than high school'

Remember when Roberto Aguayo thought kicking in the NFL was easy?

No? Well, here is a little reminder.

During the 2016 NFL combine, Aguayo was asked a number of questions regarding his future and some of the similarities and differences between college football and the NFL.

In the midst of all that, Aguayo provided this little nugget, that, in hindsight, doesn't look all that great, considering the kicker was released Saturday after just one disappointing preseason performance.

"To me field goals, it's easier," Aguayo said, according to Eric Edholm of Pro Football Weekly. "The hashes are closer. Growing up I always thought, wow, NFL is much easier than high school, let alone college. Kickoffs are out the back. There's not that much placement, not that much hang time putting it on the goal line, trying to cover."

After controversially being picked in the second round by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Aguayo posted a disappointing rookie season that saw him make just 71 percent of his field goals.

Not exactly a number you would associate with something easy to accomplish.
