The Bears announced on Tuesday morning they have officially re-signed veteran kicker Connor Barth to a one-year deal.

In his first season with the Bears after replacing longtime kicker Robbie Gould, Barth connected on 18-of-23 field goals attempts and made 31 out of a possible 32 extra points. 

In 99 career games with the Kansas City Chiefs (2008), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2009-12, 2015), Denver Broncos (2014) and Bears (2016), Barth has converted 157-of-187 field goal attempts and missed just two extra points.

The Bears now have their punter (Pat O'Donnell), long-snapper (Patrick Scales) and kicker (Barth) under contract for the 2017 season.
