Earlier this week, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cut ties with K Roberto Aguayo, who was their second-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
To help replace the former Florida State kicker, the Bucs are now turning to a former Arkansas kicker.
According to Roy Cummings of FanRag Sports, the Bucs have signed Zach Hocker to compete with veteran Nick Folk for the starting job during the preseason:
As expected the #Bucs have signed a new kicker to compete with Nick Folk. He is Zach Hocker, formerly of the Rams, Redskins, Saints, et. al

Since he was selected by the Washington Redskins in the seventh round of the 2014 Draft, Hocker has kicked for the New Orleans Saints and the then-St. Louis Rams.
In eight career games, he has made 10 of his 14 field-goal attempts (with a long of 51 yards) and 13 of his 14 extra-point tries.
