Cairo Santos was held out of the Chiefs' preseason opener due to a groin injury.
That's what prompted the Chiefs to sign former Penn State kicker Sam Ficken, who converted a 45-yarder in Friday night's loss to San Francisco. Coach Andy Reid remains confident that Santos will be ready for the start of the regular season. Aug 13 - 9:12 AM

Chiefs re-signed restricted free agent PK Cairo Santos to a one-year, $1.797 million contract.

Santos has been a terrific kicker in K.C. the past three years, nailing 86-of-102 (84.3%) field goal tries including a career-best 31-of-35 (88.6%) clip in 2016. Santos' 56% touchback rate was also a career high. More infamously, Santos is known to be the favorite kicker of controversial DFS personality Davis Mattek.

Chiefs extended an original-pick tender to restricted free agent K Cairo Santos.

Santos won the Chiefs' kicker job as an UDFA in 2014. If he plays on the tender, he'll earn $1.797 million in 2017. Santos made a career-high 88.6 percent of his field goals last season and nailed 36-of-39 extra points.

UDFA rookie Cairo Santos has won the Chiefs' kicking job.

Santos beat out veteran Ryan Succop, the most accurate kicker in Chiefs history at 81.0 percent (119-of-147). At Tulane last year, Santos went 16-of-23 on field goals (69.5 percent). Fantasy owners should be looking for sturdier options off the wire such as Lions K Nate Freese and Eagles K Cody Parkey. Going with Santos over Succop saves the Chiefs more than $1.5M this season.
