The Chicago Bears have claimed kicker Roberto Aguayo off of waivers, the group introduced Sunday, a day after the previous second-spherical decide was launched by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Bucs minimize ties with Aguayo following an underwhelming rookie season and a poor efficiency in Tampa Bay’s first preseason recreation.

Whereas Aguayo’s first shot within the NFL was a powerful failure, he was arguably one of many biggest school kickers of all time, and will have the ability to compete with Connor Barth for the beginning job.

Aguayo hit on simply seventy one % of his makes an attempt in 2016.

In a corresponding transfer, the Bears positioned broad receiver Rueben Randle on injured reserve.
