Schefter said Pineiro did not miss a kick this preseason and could draw interest on waivers with some teams struggling at kicker right now. The knock on Blankenship is his range, but he wins the job and is ranked 8th among our kickers this year.
Santos competed with Pineiro this summer and signed to the Bears practice squad after getting released last weekend. He can be added to the active roster or called up to kick before being returned to the practice squad after the game. The Bears could make that move twice before Santos would have to be released and re-signed in order to remain with the team.
