WATCH: HBO's 'Hard Knocks' Captures Sad Firing of Buccaneers Kicker Roberto Aguayo

Last year, Mexican-American kicker, Roberto Aguayo, was a second round NFL draft pick for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was a major score for the 23-year-old as kickers are typically drafted in later rounds, reports wearemitu.com.

Formerly known as the most accurate kicker in college football history, Aguayo has strangely struggled since joining the team, however, missing so many field goals that football fans created video compilations of them, and his teammates regularly ribbed him.

Aguayo's latest fumble was missing two kicks during Friday’s Buccaneers vs. Bengals pre-season game. This was the last straw for team management; he was let go quickly thereafter for being “an inconsistent kicker.”

HBO’s Hard Knocks, which follows the Buccaneers during training camp, captured the painful moment.

As cbssports.com reports, The Bucs’ general manager, Jason Licht, addressed the decision on TheMMQB.com, saying, “You never feel good when you shatter someone's dream… especially, someone, you had such high hopes for. It is a little bit of a sense of, I don't want to say relief, but we've ripped off the band-aid, and we move on. We're moving forward."

Luckily for Aguayo, the story doesn’t end there as the Chicago Bears have since snatched him up.

Of the whole situation, Aguayo told ChicagoBears.com, “I’m defined by how I keep my head up and keep pushing. That’s in the past now. Yeah, at the time it hurt. But there’s new opportunities and I’m here now, so this is my next opportunity and I’m looking forward to making the most of it.”

We’re rooting for you, Roberto!
