Andy Reid called the Chiefs new kicker ButtKicker.com, Travis Kelce introduced himself to him

How new was Harrison Butker? The KC Chiefs new kicker, who was signed last week in place of the injured (and now released) Cairo Santos, was so new that Travis Kelce had to introduce himself to him. Really. Kelce mentioned that he walked up to him and said, “Hi, I’m Travis” before the game but I thought he was joking. Another reporter said, wait a minute, did you really introduce yourself and Kelce confirmed that he did. Butker went 3/4 on the night including the game winning field goal. He missed one field goal so I don’t feel completely comfortable with him yet but the game...

KC Chiefs-Washington Redskins game recap 10/2/17 | The Kansas City Star The third hero was receiver Chris Conley, who caught a clutch 10-yard pass over the middle to set up the fourth hero, rookie kicker Harrison Butker.

Kansas City Chiefs waive Cairo Santos

The Kansas City Chiefs have waived/injured Cairo Santos, and according to Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest, he won’t be back. Am told K Cairo Santos won't return to Chiefs if he clears waivers by injury settlement. Free to sign elsewhere once clearing waivers.— Matt Derrick (@mattderrick) September 30, 2017 The news is a little strange given the fact that the Chiefs originally placed Santos on Injured Reserve last week and said there would be a chance he could return. That must have changed when they saw what that had in rookie Harrison Butker, who they signed of the Carolina...

Chiefs say Cairo Santos could return this season

Chiefs say Cairo Santos could return this season

My first reaction to the Kansas City Chiefs putting K Cairo Santos on injured reserve was that it sucks his season is over. But then I remembered the IR-return rule! Teams can bring back up to two players who were put on IR. So is that a possibility for Santos? Apparently, it is, says Chiefs coach Andy Reid. Andy Reid said there's a chance Cairo Santos comes back this year.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) September 28, 2017 The rule is basically that you can practice after six weeks and play after eight weeks once you’re added to the active roster. That could be good news for the...

The Chiefs new kicker might have the best Twitter name in the NFL

The Kansas City Chiefs lost kicker Cairo Santos to injured reserve on Tuesday. The Chiefs haven’t said yet whether he is marked for a potential return after eight weeks or whether he’s done for the year.

Butker is going to wear the hallowed No. 7 jersey in Kansas City but we’re not here to talk about him overtaking Matt Cassel’s legacy. We’re here to talk about his Twitter name. It’s @ButtKicker87. Today I start a new chapter with the @Chiefs. I'm very grateful for the opportunity and...

Arrowheadlines: Who is the better 3-0 team, the Chiefs or Falcons?

Kansas City Chiefs put Cairo Santos on IR, sign rookie Harrison Butker | ESPN Butker was the Panthers' seventh-round draft pick from Georgia Tech. He made both of his field goal attempts in the preseason, each from beyond 40 yards. He was also 4-for-4 on extra points. A rookie kicker may not be best option for a team with Super Bowl dreams | ESPN Santos doesn’t have great range, a point mentioned by special-teams coordinator Dave Toub over the summer. But from inside 50 yards, Santos is as close to money as any kicker the Chiefs have had. His career field goal percentage of 84.8 is the...
