Tampa Bay Buccaneers Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Aguayo finished the 2016 season with a 22-for-31 tally on field goals, as well as a 32-for-34 mark on extra-point attempts.
Impact: Aguayo was one of the more talked-about rookie kickers in recent memory, given his surprise second-round selection last spring. The FSU product endured the requisite ups and downs that seem to affect the majority of first-year players, except that the spotlight shone particularly bright on his mistakes given the individualistic nature of his position. There were definitely times when it looked like Aguayo had this NFL thing figured out -- such as a pair of separate three-game stretches when he was perfect on all his kicks -- but they would inevitably be followed by games with some confounding misses from fairly manageable distances. The 40-to-49-yard range seemed to particularly bedevil Aguayo, as he was only able to connect on four of 10 attempts from that area of the field. That particular statistical nugget might best crystallize what has to be the biggest concern for the soon-to-be second-year player and the Bucs alike; NFL teams eventually have no use for a kicker, regardless of draft position, that can't consistently convert from what is usually the most common range for field-goal attempts throughout the course of a season. A diligent worker by all accounts, Aguayo will undoubtedly focus on honing his accuracy throughout the offseason. However, the Bucs aren't going to let him cruise into the 2017 campaign without competition, already having inked former Liberty University kicker John Lunsford, who booted an NCAA-record 12 field goals of over 50 yards, to a futures contract on Jan. 4.
News: Huff secured three of six targets for 41 yards, rushed once for five yards, and gained 72 yards on six punt returns during the Bucs stint of his 2016 campaign.
Impact: Huff's 2016 season wasn't dull by any stretch, with the third-year receiver opening the season as a starter in Philadelphia, picking up DUI, drug possession and weapons charges, getting subsequently released by the Eagles, and then latching on with the Bucs and eventually making his way onto the active roster. The University of Oregon product had shown more than enough play-making ability in his two-plus seasons with the Eagles, during which he'd notched 48 receptions on 75 targets for 482 yards and four touchdowns in 34 games, while also compiling 1,165 yards and touchdowns of 107 and 98 yards on 42 punt returns. Huff was promoted to the Bucs' active roster on Dec. 6 after a near month-long stay on the practice squad and was also signed to a two-year contract extension on the same day, insuring that he'll have a chance to continue developing his skills in Tampa for the foreseeable future. Blessed with excellent speed and a diverse skill set, Huff is a fantasy prospect with some upside heading into the offseason, given the team's need to find multiple viable options in the passing game alongside Mike Evans. Huff's special teams acumen gives an additional boost to his potential value in formats that take return yards and touchdowns into account.
