    The Chicago Bears have signed a new kicker as Cairo Santos will join the team. 

    In turn, the team also waived their current kicker Connor Barth, who missed a field goal during the Bears' loss to the Detroit Lions Sunday. 

    Santos, who was the kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs over the last four seasons before being cut loose earlier this year, has made 84.8 percent of the kicks he's taken in his career, including all three he booted through in 2017. 

    Barth, who was brought in to replace Robbie Gould before the 2016 season, made 68.8 percent of his kicks this season, missing five of them total on the year.
