Tampa Activates K Succop…Borregales likely cut


Recommended Posts

Why?

Ammendola has done everything you could ask of him so far.

Made every FG, every XP, and has been great on kickoffs.

Just because a guy was damn good in college doesn’t mean that they’re going to be great in the pros, especially when it comes to kickers. Robert Aguayo was talked up as a sun-soaked Vinatieri and he ended up sucking big, fat brown eye.

i dont know why everyone wants to waste a PS spot on a kicker. we had 2 and Amendola won it weeks ago. and he has played well.

out of the 16 spots we filled 13.

QB-1

RB-1

WR-2

TE-1

OL-2

C-1

DL-2

LB-2

CB-1

with 3 spots left maybe at least 1 safety? definitely another CB. what about another RB. or another TE considering how Yeboah cant block if we get hit with injuries there it could be a problem.

you dont keep kickers and punters on the PS. yes some teams do but its stupid. you could sign a kicker anytime sitting on his couch. and hes ready. but position players who are the ones who get hit and hurt need the depth. 

what happens if we get multiple injuries at a spot with only 1 player like CB? the other CB will have to come from another teams PS and have to learn our playbook on the fly. it might take him a few weeks to really get it down.

we cant waste a spot on a kicker cause you guys like him from college. cause he was the best rated K in the draft. apparently hes not as good as you think.

To be fair, Aguayo only got 1 season. Who knows if he would have improved.

Just out of curiosity I wanted to see if Jose Borregales was released by Tampa or placed on practice squad.  I was surprised to see Tampa going into the season with 2 kickers.  Keeping him on the active roster means they know they have to protect him from getting picked up.

Yup. Borregales wasn't cut when Succup was activated, so it looks like the Bucs will roll with 2 kickers for now.

They have to know that a few kicker hungry teams would put in claims if they try to sneak him through waivers and onto the PS.

Their plan is probably to keep him around as insurance, and then have him as a real challenger for the job next year.

So he's unlikely to be available for the Jets, or anyone else. In any case, our kicker is perfect in his preseason career, has great range on FGs, and is terrific on kickoffs. No need to look to replace him right now.

also possible that there working on trading him. at least they get something for him. i cant see them holding 2 Kickers on there roster.

Ammendola needed competition,  Naggar was not it.  Ammendola kicked well in Green Bay,  but they were not pretty.  It's very late now.  It's Ammendola's job to lose at this point. 

If the Jets feel Borregales is better bring him in and cut Ammendola.  Hoping The Jets finally find their Vinatieri. 

The Jets kicking situation has been shaky for a while now.  Myers was an aberration for his time with the Jets.

One was a little left but still good the rest were down the middle. There is nothing to suggest at this point that Borregales will be better. We were all excited about trading for Kaare Vedvik too. Kicker is not a concern right now.

Joe D may have signed him off this video.

The thud when his foot hits the ball is ridiculous.  The Jets grabbed him out of Kicker camp.

Hope he’s the dude. I can’t remember seeing a kicker built like a football player like this guy either

I'm actually looking forward to blown kickoff coverages so I can see him tackle people

I would scoop Borregales up & place him in the ps sqd... release whoever they feel is the least needed... At this point Amendola is a Complete unk... if he plays well keep him... if he starts having issues @ least you have someone on the team who may prove to be worthy.
