Pats signing kicker Roberto Aguayo to practice squad originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
They’ve now added a third kicker to the mix.
The 26-year-old has since turned out to be a major draft bust. Aguayo hasn’t played in an NFL game since that ’16 season, when he converted only 22 of his 31 field goal attempts and 32 of his 34 PATs. He bounced around the league with the Chicago Bears, Carolina Panthers and Los Angeles Chargers but failed to make the active rosters.
It appears Aguayo will look to revive his career in New England, where Folk has been enjoying a stellar season. The 36-year-old will, however, be a free agent in 2021.
The signing of Aguayo puts additional pressure on Rohrwasser, who was taken with a fifth-round pick in the 2020 Draft.
The Patriots — eliminated from playoff contention following last week’s loss to Miami — are preparing for a Monday Night Football matchup vs. the AFC East champion Buffalo Bills.
