Bears To Sign K Connor Barth

The Bears will sign kicker Connor Barth, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune tweets. The veteran will earn $155K guaranteed during the one-year deal.

Connor BarthThe 30-year-old kicker spent the 2016 season with Chicago, where he replaced long-time player Robbie Gould. The veteran ultimately converted an underwhelming 78.3-percent of his field goals. Fortunately, he was a bit more accurate on extra points, missing only one in 32 attempts.

Over his eight-year NFL career, Barth has connected on 84-percent of his field goals and 99-percent of his extra points. Besides the Bears, Barth has spent time with the Buccaneers, Broncos, Chiefs, Dolphins, and Saints.

We ranked Barth as one of the better kickers available this offseason, though there were seven others ahead of him.

    Between the bears and the bulls in chicago it’s enough to make a fan go crazy. Ownership for both teams along with front office personal: Ted Phillips and gar Forman specifically are two individuals who really hurt there respective teams.
