Jets' Cairo Santos: Faces competition from Rose
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos faces competition for the Jets' kicking job after the team claimed Nick Rose off waivers from the Chargers on Monday, reports.

Santos is now presumably past the offseason procedure he underwent to repair a groin muscle injury, so he'll now focus on fending off the challenge that Rose is in line to present. Whichever kicker claims the job will be working behind an offense that averaged just 18.6 points per game last season. Newcomers like wideout Terrelle Pryor and running back Isaiah Crowell could help spur improvements on that front in 2018, but the team's attack is still slated to be directed by 38-year-old Josh McCown, while the Jets groom their soon-to-be drafted quarterback of the future.

Jets' Cairo Santos: Signs with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos (groin) signed with the Jets on Thursday, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Santos spent time with the Chiefs and Bears last season, but will now head to the Big Apple after Chandler Catanzaro signed with the Buccaneers on Wednesday. The Brazilian native converted four of five field-goal attempts last season and was also 14 of 14 on extra-point attempts while dealing with a lingering groin injury for much of the year. There's a chance the Jets bring in another kicker for training camp to battle with Santos, but his strong history inside 50 yards (34 of 37 kicks from 30-39 yards and 23 of 29 from 40-49 yards) will likely make him the favorite to win the job.

Bears' Cairo Santos: Undergoes offseason surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos (groin) required surgery to repair the groin injury that landed him on injured reserve, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Santos was only signed to a one-year contract with Chicago, so he's set to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year. However, it isn't certain how his recovery from groin surgery will impact his standing in free agency.

Bears' Cairo Santos: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santos (groin) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

Santos was released by the Chiefs earlier this season due to his groin problem, which flared up again in Sunday's defeat to the 49ers. Now done for the season, the Bears have signed veteran Mike Nugent to replace the Brazilian.

Bears' Cairo Santos: May be replaced
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bears head coach John Fox said the team may need to find a replacement for Santos, who injured his groin during Sunday's 15-14 loss to the 49ers, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.

With the Bears unable to venture into scoring range after the first quarter, Santos' injury didn't have much impact on Sunday's game. He dealt with a groin injury earlier this season, prompting the Chiefs to place him on injured reserve and eventually release him. The Bears could turn back to Connor Barth, who was released to make room for Santos a few weeks ago.
