According to sources, the last two years of the contract can be canceled, resulting in a three-year contract of up to $ 11 million.
Santos took his chance to score 30 out of 32 field goals and 36 out of 37 additional points after Edipineiro injured his groin in August.
He set a series of field goal franchise records and gave the Bears the stability they had been looking for since cutting Robbie Gould before the 2016 season.
Santos made a 36-yard attempt in his only attempt at a wildcard defeat in New Orleans, in addition to the last 27 attempts in the regular season. Gould held the Bears’ past record with consecutive field goals for the season (24 times in 2006) and overall (26 times from 2005-06).
Santos scored 138 out of 166 field goals and 197 out of 204 additional points in Kansas City, Los Angeles Rams, Tampa Bay, Tennessee and Chicago over a seven-season.
