The Chicago Bears made a significant roster move on Saturday morning. According to his agent, kicker Michael Badgley is signing with the team.
This development indicates Cairo Santos likely will not be available for the Bears on Sunday against the Giants. Santos missed practice on Thursday and Friday due to personal reasons, which puts his Week 4 game status in question.
As a result, the Chicago Bears brought in Badgley, Brian Johnson, and Josh Lambo for workouts this week.
The 27-year-old kicker spent three years with the Los Angeles Chargers (2018-2020) and split time with the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans in 2021.
Michael Badgley has been an 80.5% kicker for his career. His best season came in 2018 when he connected on 93.8% of his field goal attempts. It's been rocky for him ever since, however.
