Cairo Santos Inks Four-Year Extension

Saturday, December 23, 12:39 PM

Chicago Bears kicker Cairo Santos signed a four-year, $16 million extension with the team on Saturday morning, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal includes $9.5 million guaranteed and keeps Santos in Chicago through 2027. The veteran has been quite reliable with the Bears, missing just four field goals over his last 30 games. As the Bears' offense looks to build on flashes of success next season, Santos' accuracy in the kicking department will be key.

Buccaneers Agree To Three-Year Deal With Chase McLaughlin

Monday, March 11, 5:15 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to an undisclosed three-year deal to re-sign kicker Chase McLaughlin on Monday, according to a source. McLaughlin will stay with the Buccaneers after going 29-for-31 on his field-goal attempts and 33-for-33 on his extra points in 17 regular-season games. The 27-year-old's success rate on field goals last year set a new single-season record, so it's no wonder why Tampa wanted the kicker back for another go-round in 2024 as their primary kicker. From a fantasy perspective, McLaughlin finished as the No. 16 kicker in terms of overall fantasy points in 2023. The Bucs offense should remain largely the same this year with quarterback Baker Mayfield and top wideout Mike Evans sticking around, so McLaughlin should enter the year as a matchup-based streamer at the kicking position in fantasy.
