COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) -- The Los Angeles Chargers have signed kicker Roberto Aguayo to a reserve/future contract.
The Chargers announced the deal Wednesday.
Aguayo was a second-round pick in 2016 by Tampa Bay, which traded up to draft the Florida State product. He was the highest-drafted kicker since Mike Nugent in 2005.
But Aguayo missed nine of his 31 field goal attempts as a rookie, and he was waived by Tampa Bay last August.
Aguayo spent time with Chicago and Carolina this season, but didn't attempt a kick.
The Chargers (9-7) used four full-time kickers last season: rookie Younghoe Koo, Nick Novak, Travis Coons and Nick Rose.
Los Angeles finished last in the NFL in field goal percentage, making just 20 of its 30 attempts.
