Which kickers should the Bears look at in the bye week?

Because we all know Connor Barth just isn’t going to cut it anymore. On September 4, 2016, the Chicago Bears released kicker Robbie Gould after 11 seasons with the team. One day after his release, they signed journeyman Connor Barth to take the reigns as the starting kicker. Since then, Gould has gone on to make 27 of his 29 field goal attempts, as well as 30 of his 34 extra-point tries.

On the one-year anniversary of his broken leg, the rookie was a driving force in the Chicago Bears’ 17-3 victory over the Carolina Panthers. He finished the game with four tackles, one pass deflected, an interception returned 76 yards for a touchdown and a fumble recovered 75 yards for a touchdown. Had it not been for a 19-yard field goal by Connor Barth, then Jackson would’ve been the only player on the team to score. Jackson’s fumble recovery came from a botched read...
