The Los Angeles Chargers announced on Wednesday that they’ve signed kicker Roberto Aguayo to a Reserve/Future contract.
A former second round pick (59th overall) by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2016 out of Florida State, Aguayo connected on 22-of-31 field goal attempts his rookie season while going 32-for-34 on extra points. He was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week after converting all four field goal attempts and an extra point in a 19-7 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Aguayo finished the season making 16 of his final 20 field goal attempts.
Aguayo starred at Florida State from 2013-15, earning first-team All-American honors all three seasons. He finished as the most accurate kicker in NCAA history with a 96.7-percent conversation rate. Aguayo also spent parts of the 2017 season with the Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers.
Players who were not on an active roster at the end of the season are eligible to sign a reserve/future contract, and revert to the active roster at the start of the new league year. Aguayo is the 11th player to ink such a deal with the Bolts this offseason, joining TE Braedon Bowman, G Brett Boyko, S A.J. Hendy, LS Anthony Kukwa, OLB James Onwualu, WR Andre Patton, CB Jeff Richards, DE Whitney Richardson, WR Artavis Scott and C Cole Toner.
