There's a fascinating (to me, anyway) subplot simmering in Tampa right now and it centers on a position not known for reality-TV level drama.
You probably know the background here, but a quick refresher: The Bucs traded up to pick Aguayo in the second round of the 2016 draft, an audacious move that only makes sense if Aguayo becomes a Pro Bowl-level kicker. He was pretty much the opposite of that as a rookie, prompting the team to swallow its pride and bring in another option ahead of Year 2.
Folk has enjoyed a very solid career, fresh off a seven-year run with the Jets where he became the most accurate kicker in franchise history. In a radio spot this week, Folk made it clear he (wait for it) didn't come here to make friends.
"I can hopefully get (Aguayo) going a little bit in the NFL world," Folk told WDAE-AM, via JoeBucsFan.com. "I had a great guy to learn from in Martin (Gramatica) my rookie year. I kind of picked things off of him just sitting and watching. I mean, hopefully, I can show (Aguayo) a few things, not too many, because I have a family to feed."
YES. GAUNTLET THROWN DOWN. Props to Folk, who isn't hiding his ambition here: He is a place-kicking terminator brought here to end Aguayo's Bucs career before it ever really started.
All we need now is for Robbie to clap back at a charity golf event or something and we ... are ... flying.
