The Chicago Bears seem to have found a diamond in the rough with Cairo Santos

If you’re a Chicago Bears fan then you know the hardships of the kicker position.

Fans in 2020, however, have been fortunate enough to have Cairo Santos. A man of small stature, standing at just 5-foot-8 but making up for it with a cannon for a leg when it comes to converting field goals (18-of-20).

Extra points even, which have been hard to come by for the Bears struggling offense, have been a piece of cake for Santos after converting all 20 of his attempts through 12 weeks.
