Buccaneers still have a Roberto Aguayo problem

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers still have a Roberto Aguayo problem.

The rookie place kicker missed a field-goal attempt from 31 yards out in the second quarter of Sunday's win over the Chargers. After hitting two kicks in the second half, he moved to 15-for-22 on field goals this season, the worst success rate of any kicker in the league.

We've seen some bad weather conditions in games in Week 13, but Aguayo can't use that as an excuse. It's 70 degrees and sunny in San Diego today.

FOX cameras captured Aguayo mouth the words, "Oh my God" as the poorly struck ball dovetailed to the right of the upright. The reaction of his teammates -- particularly a sideline shot of Jameis Winston -- told the story. The Bucs are sick and tired of Aguayo's struggles, but his draft standing keeps his roster spot secure.

For at least a couple more months, anyway.
