Connor Barth: Officially waived Monday
The Bears waived Barth on Monday, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.
The move was fully expected after the Bears came to terms with Cairo Santos on a contract earlier Monday, one day after Barth missed what would have been a game-tying kick from 46 yards out with seconds remaining in a 27-24 loss to the Lions. Accuracy was an issue for Barth while he served as the Bears' kicker in 2016, and he took a step back in that regard this season, converting only 11 of 16 field-goal tries, including four misses from the 40-to-49-yard range. The Bears are banking on Santos, who has a career 84.8 percent success rate on field goals, being a more reliable source of scoring than Barth.
