Kicker Connor Barth is entering his 10th NFL season and second with the Bears.

In his first season with the Bears last year, Barth made 18-of-23 field-goal attempts (78.2 percent) with a long of 49 yards and 31-of-32 extra-point tries. After missing three of his first seven field-goal attempts, he closed the season by hitting 14-of-16.

Barth originally signed with the Bears one week before the start of the 2016 regular season following the release of Robbie Gould, the franchise's all-time leading scorer.

Prior to joining the Bears, Barth spent his first eight NFL seasons with the Chiefs (2008), Buccaneers (2009-13 and 2015) and Broncos (2014). In Denver, he worked with Bears coach John Fox and special-teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers, who held the same roles with the Broncos.

Barth entered the NFL in 2008 with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent from North Carolina. He has converted 157-of-187 career field-goal attempts (84.0), ranking as the 17th most accurate field-goal kicker in NFL history.
