The Bears waived Barth on Monday, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio 720 AM Chicago reports.
The move was fully expected after the Bears came to terms with Cairo Santos on a contract earlier Monday, one day after Barth missed what would have been a game-tying kick from 46 yards out with seconds remaining in a 27-24 loss to the Lions. Accuracy was an issue for Barth while he served as the Bears' kicker in 2016, and he took a step back in that regard this season, converting only 11 of 16 field-goal tries, including four misses from the 40-to-49-yard range. The Bears are banking on Santos, who has a career 84.8 percent success rate on field goals, being a more reliable source of scoring than Barth. Nov 20 2:21 pm (EST)

- Barth made all three of his field-goal attempts while converting an extra point in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Packers. All Connor Barth News
