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.
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.
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.
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.
