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.
Cairo Santos agreed to terms with the team on a three-year contract extension through 2023.
According to Chicago Tribune reporter Brad Briggs, the deal could run an additional two years and be worth up to $17.5 million.
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 one extra point.
