Bears Hosted K Cairo Santos For Visit

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that the Bears brought in veteran K Cairo Santos for a visit on Thursday.

According to Biggs, Santos took a physical for the Bears but it doesn’t appear the team will offer a contract at this point in time.

Teams including the Buccaneers have been monitoring Santos and his recovery from an adductor strain the past few months, as he’s currently the best available kicker.

Santos, 25, wound up signing on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Tulane back in 2014. He returned to the Chiefs this past March on a one-year restricted deal worth $1.797 million.

Kansas City elected to place him on injured reserve with a groin strain at the start of the season and cut him loose with a settlement soon after.

In 2017, Santos has appeared in three games and converted all three of his field goal attempts along with 12 of 12 extra point tries.
