The Connor Barth era has come to an end.
Santos, 26, spent three full seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs before getting waived after being placed on injured reserve this September. He finished fifth in the NFL in field goal percentage last season with 88.6 percent. He has an 84.8 career field goal percentage rate, as well as an extra point percentage rate of 96.2.
If Santos is able to play up to the level that he did last season, then he could prove to become a kicker for the Bears in the long run. He is still very young and has played well in cold weather in the past.
No matter what happens with him, it will likely be better than what Barth has done with the team.
