Chargers Signing K Roberto Aguayo To Futures Deal

Adam Schefter is reporting that the Chargers are signing former Buccaneers K Roberto Aguayo to a futures deal on Wednesday for the 2018 season.

As of now, the Chargers have signed eight players to futures deals including:

  1. DB A.J. Hendy
  2. DE Whitney Richardson
  3. C Cole Toner
  4. TE Bradeon Bowman
  5. LB James Onwualu
  6. G Brett Boyko
  7. LS Anthony Kulwa
  8. K Roberto Aguayo

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Aguayo, 23, was selected with the No. 59 overall pick after the Buccaneers traded up to get him in 2016. He was in the second year of his four-year, $4.053 million contract and set to make a base salary of $634,208 for the 2017 season when the Buccaneers elected to cut Aguayo loose back in August.

The Bears later claimed Aguayo off of waivers, but unfortunately, waived him coming out of the preseason. The Panthers signed him to their practice squad a few months ago.

In 2016, Aguayo appeared in all 16 games for the Buccaneers and converted 22 of 31 field goal attempts (71 percent) to go along with 32 of 34 extra point tries and 52 touchbacks.
