LAKE FOREST, Ill. – The Bears are still searching for a new quarterback, but it looks like they locked down their kicker for the foreseeable future.
According to Chicago Tribune reporter Brad Biggs, Cairo Santos agreed to a five-year contract worth up to $17.5 million. Biggs is reporting the final two years of the deal are voidable.
Santos broke the Bears franchise record last year, drilling 27 consecutive field goals. The 29-year-old Brazilian bomber replaced Eddy Pineiro to start the season and ran away with the job. He made 30 of his 32 attempts and all but two extra points.
