Bears re-signed K Connor Barth on a one-year contract.
The deal includes $155,000 guaranteed. Barth was fine for the Bears after joining just before Week 1, but his 78.3 conversion rate is nothing to write home about. Still, he did convert all but one extra point, and the guaranteed money suggests he will have a big leg up if Chicago brings in any competition in camp. Mar 10 - 1:16 PM

Bears signed K Connor Barth.

Barth lost out to Kai Forbath in the Saints' kicker battle, but the Bears have decided he is a better option than long-time stalwart Robbie Gould. Barth converted 23-of-28 attempts (82.1%) and all but one of his extra points in 12 games with the Bucs last season.

No frontrunner has emerged in the Saints' kicking battle between Connor Barth and Kai Forbath.

"These two guys are almost identical all the way back through their college years," said coach Sean Payton. "We feel good about the way both of them are hitting it." Barth was much better for the Bucs last year (23-for-28 on FGs) than Forbath was during his two stops in Washington and New Orleans (10-for-15).

Saints signed K Connor Barth.

He will compete with Kai Forbath. That is, if Forbath keeps his roster spot. Neither player was particularly great in 2015, though Barth was better, converting 23-of-28 field goal attempts for the Bucs.

Bucs released K Connor Barth.

This was expected after Tampa traded up in the second round to take Florida State K Roberto Aguayo. Barth was 23-of-28 on field goal attempts last season and 25-of-26 on extra points. He should find another home before training camp.

Bucs signed K Connor Barth to a two-year contract.

Barth was released in favor of Kyle Brindza at final cuts. The Bucs have reversed the transaction a month later. Barth has converted 85.3 percent of his field goals across seven seasons including an 84.3 rate in five seasons with Tampa Bay. The Bucs also worked out Randy Bullock, Kai Forbath and Billy Cundiff before settling on Barth.

Bucs released K Connor Barth.

Barth was signed a week ago to compete with Patrick Murray for the kicker job, but the Bucs later traded TE Tim Wright to the Lions for K Kyle Brindza. Brindza went 2-for-2 in the preseason finale and will be Tampa's kicker.

Buccaneers signed K Connor Barth, formerly of the Broncos.

Barth was cut by the Broncos earlier in the day. He's resurfacing in Tampa Bay, where Barth will be the favorite over Brandon Bogotay and Patrick Murray. Those who drafted Barth in early best-ball leagues can take solace in the fact that he'll be kicking at all this year. We'd also advise those best-ball leagues to eliminate the kicker position. All fantasy leagues, for that matter.

Broncos released K Connor Barth.

Barth loses his roster spot to new LG Evan Mathis. Signed in November last season after Brandon McManus' early-year struggles, Barth went 15-of-16 on field goals and nailed all 15 extra points. With McManus performing well in camp and preseason, Barth is out of a job. The Broncos will keep him on speed dial should McManus falter again. Owners that drafted Barth can pick up McManus.

Connor Barth connected on a 50-yard field goal in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Bills.

Brandon McManus was brought back to the active roster last week and handled kickoffs. But Barth retained all place-kicking duties, including getting a shot from 50 yards out. He'll obviously keep that job after making it. Barth will be a reasonable fantasy kicking option at San Diego in Week 15.
Mon, Dec 8, 2014 09:45:00 AM

Connor Barth went 5-of-5 on field goals in his Week 13 Broncos debut.

In his first game since replacing Brandon McManus, Barth got five attempts from inside 40 yards as the offense repeatedly sputtered in the red zone. That obviously won't be a trend on a Peyton Manning team, but Barth is still a no-brainer top-10 kicking option going forward. He gets his first taste of the Mile High air in Week 14 against the Bills.

Broncos signed K Connor Barth.

He'll replace second-year undrafted free agent Brandon McManus, who's been waived after missing four of his first 13 field-goal attempts. Barth has been accurate throughout his career with a big leg, but missed all of 2013 with an Achilles' injury. He was released by the Bucs at final cuts. Provided he's healthy, Barth will be a weekly fantasy option for the Broncos' high-scoring offense.

Buccaneers released K Connor Barth.

The move leaves Patrick Murray as the lone placekicker on Tampa Bay's roster. The Bucs may eventually sign a free agent kicker off the street.

Bucs K Connor Barth is completely healed from the Achilles' injury that sidelined him in 2013.

"I'm making 61-yard field goals," he said. Barth was one of the most consistent kickers in the game before suffering the injury in a charity basketball game last July. Barth's fantasy value has been held back by the tepidity of the Tampa Bay offense, but he is as solid an option as any in the fantasy kicking game.

Bucs K Connor Barth (Achilles') hopes to resume kicking six months.

Barth ruptured his right (kicking) tendon during a charity basketball game in his hometown of Wilmington, N.C. on Friday night. He's already had surgery and been placed on the non-football injury list, which acts the same as the PUP list. Still, Barth is almost certainly done for the year. Lawrence Tynes will kick for the Bucs this season.
