The Bucs place-kicking battle between Roberto Aguayo and Nick Folk will play out until September.

It took three days, but they finally went head-to-head during a special teams period Sunday.

Folk, the Jets free agent, got the first bite of the apple, although he was quick to say there was no significance in the order and that he will alternate with Aguayo throughout training camp.

In a steady rain, both kickers made their first four field goals Sunday before each missed their last attempt.

"I had them both 4 out of 5,'' Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said. "But I'll be honest. I was watching the alignment up front. We'll get the tape. I thought they both missed their last one.''
