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. Dec 8 - 9:45 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.
Dec 1 - 10:30 AM

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.
Mar 29 - 12:50 PM

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.

Bucs K Connor Barth is out for the season after tearing his Achilles' tendon during a charity basketball game.

Barth has been one of the game's most consistent kickers, topping 100 points in three straight seasons while converting 86.5 percent of his field goals during that span. The Bucs rewarded him last year with a four-year, $13.2 million contract that included $4 million guaranteed. Lawrence Tynes has been signed as the replacement. Barth will end up on the non-football injury list shortly.

Bucs re-signed franchise player K Connor Barth to a four-year, $13.2 million contract.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal includes $4 million in guarantees. He was due $2.6 million under the franchise tag. Barth was arguably the Bucs' most consistent offensive weapon last year, banging home 26-of-28 field goals, including 13-of-14 from 40-49 yards out. Franchise players Matt Prater and Josh Scobee should better Barth's deal, as both also handle kickoffs.

Unsigned franchise player Connor Barth will join the Buccaneers when they kick off organized team activities on Tuesday.

After setting a franchise record by nailing 92.9-percent of his field goals a season ago, Barth is looking for a long-term extension with an annual base salary near $3 million. The two sides have until July 15 to work out a deal, but it appears Barth will work out with his teammates in the meantime.

Unsigned franchise player Connor Barth was not present for the first day of Bucs' voluntary activities on Tuesday.

As long as he's staying in shape, it's hardly a major issue for a kicker to miss offseason practices. Although Barth is in search of a long-term deal, he'll report once practices become mandatory.

Buccaneers assigned the franchise tag to K Connor Barth.

Barth, 26, was Tampa Bay's most consistent offensive player in 2011, banging 26 of his 28 field goal attempts through the uprights. Whereas the Browns are guaranteeing K Phil Dawson north of $3.8 million because he's been tagged two years in a row, the Bucs will only owe Barth in the neighborhood of $2.6 million.

The St. Petersburg Times reports "all indications" are that the Bucs will place the franchise tag on free agent K Connor Barth.

If so, Barth would be the fifth kicker to be tagged this offseason. The Bucs have until 4PM ET Monday to make a decision. Barth converted 26-of-28 field-goal attempts in 2011.

The St. Petersburg Times reports the Bucs will place the franchise tag on free agent K Connor Barth if they are unable to reach a long-term agreement.

The Bucs have made Barth a priority amongst their in-house free agents after he converted 26-of-28 field-goal attempts last season. He would be guaranteed roughly $2.6 million under the franchise tag in 2012.

Coach Raheem Morris said that K Connor Barth should get a chance to be the Bucs kicker next season.

Barth is the third kicker the Bucs have used this season and he's been very solid. He made three field goals of 50 yards or more in November and then calmly nailed a game winning 47-yarder in overtime in Week 16 at New Orleans. The Bucs offense would have to make great strides this offseason for Barth to be on the fantasy radar.
Tue, Dec 29, 2009 10:48:00 AM

Bucs K Connor Barth made three field goals of 50 yards or more in the Week 10 loss to the Dolphins.

No one saw this coming as Barth was just signed earlier this month and struggled with his accuracy in practice. His performance tied an NFL record for converting kicks of 50 yards or more. Despite the big game, we're leaving him on the waiver wire as the Bucs offense still figures to be inconsistent.
