The release of Aguayo leaves the Patriots with veteran Nick Folk and undrafted rookie Quinn Nordin to compete for the starting kicking job in training camp and the preseason. The 36-year-old Folk was 26-for-28 on field goals and 30-for-33 on PATs with the Patriots last year, kicking a pair of game-winning field goals. Nordin was 42-for-58 on field goals and 119-for-124 during his collegiate career at Michigan.
