Santos has bounced around between several NFL teams dating back to 2017 when he had a previous, albeit brief, stand with the Bears.

Santos has a career average of just over 80% in field-goals-made and could possibly bring another kicking competition carousel to the Bears this season.


UPDATE – 8/25/20 12:42 PM CT: The Bears made the signing official today.
