Ryan Succop beats out Jose Borregales for Bucs’ kicking job

·1 min read

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are sticking with the veteran when it comes to their kicking duties for the 2022 season.

Jose Borregales is being waived (per The Athletic’s Greg Auman), which gives this year’s kicking job to Ryan Succop for the third year in a row.

Succop was solid and consistent for the Bucs throughout their Super Bowl run in 2020, but his numbers dipped a bit last season. Even so, he was strong throughout training camp and the preseason, while Borregales missed a pair of long field goals in the exhibition games.

This is the second year in which Succop has beaten out Borregales for the job. Don’t be surprised if the latter ends up back on Tampa Bay’s practice squad again, assuming he clears waivers.
