The Bucs are done with Nick Folk.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are done with kicker Nick Folk after he missed three kicks in two consecutive games, with the Bucs losing the latter game not in small part due to those misses.

They haven’t cut Folk yet, though: they want to find a replacement first. Which is why they’re holding tryouts on Monday with “at least four kickers”, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

It’s not clear who the Bucs would bring in. Josh Lambo, who kicked for the San Diego Chargers the past two years, and former Bucs kicker Patrick Murray are likely candidates, though.

Here’s an interesting option: one of those kickers could be Roberto Aguayo, who’s a free agent, and tried out for the Chicago Bears this week. Maybe he’s calmed down and fixed his issues?
