Cairo Santos To Re-Sign With Buccaneers

Cairo Santos will re-sign with the Buccaneers, per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times (via Twitter). Greg Auman of The Athletic first reported that the two sides were nearing a deal, and Auman added that it is expected to be a one-year pact. (Twitter link).

The 27-year-old has bounced around the NFL since being waived by the Chiefs in 2017. Over the past year, Santos has had separate stints with the Jets, Rams, and Buccaneers. He joined Tampa in November following the release of Chandler Catanzaro, and the veteran proceeded to be a solid addition for his new squad.

In seven games, Santos connected on nine of his 12 field goal attempts, and he converted all 17 of his extra point tries. Santos completed at least 80-percent of his field goal attempts during his first three seasons in the NFL, and some stability may allow him to return to that level.
