Bears sign kicker Cairo Santos

Chicago quickly filled the roster spot by signing former Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos, who was waived by Kansas City on September 30 with a groin injury.

Santos is inking a one-year deal, per Biggs.

Barth missed a last-second, potential game-tying 46-yard field goal in Chicago's 27-24 loss to Detroit on Sunday. Now that he's healed, and as Barth continued to struggle, it was an easy decision to make the change.

Mogherini, who visited refugee camps in Cox's Bazar over the weekend, emerged from Monday's talks with Suu Kyi in a positive mood. The Japanese government will provide food and everyday goods to about 800,000 refugees through the U.N.

Santos was waived by the Chiefs earlier this season after being placed on injured reserve with a groin injury.

Now, Santos will get a chance to show what he can do before he becomes an unrestricted free agent. Santos has made 89 of his 105 field-goal attempts in his career and 125 of his 130 extra-point tries. The 26-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Tulane, went undrafted in 2014 but was signed by the Chiefs as a free agent several weeks later. He was sidelined during training camp with a groin injury and was re-injured during a Week 3 victory over the Chargers leading the Chiefs to put him on the shelf and sign Harrison Butker. Santos then proceeded to enjoy the best season of his career past year, converting on 31 of his 35 attempts and making both of his tries from 50 yards or greater. Barth, 31, made 18 of 23 field goals last season and is 11 for 16 this season with all five misses from beyond 40 yards.
