LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) The Chicago Bears have signed kicker Connor Barth to replace Robbie Gould.

General manager Ryan Pace announced the move on Monday.

Barth played in 12 games for Tampa Bay last season, going 23 of 28 on field goals and making 25 of 26 extra points. He signed with the Saints in May and was released on Saturday.

Barth played for Bears coach John Fox in Denver in 2014. He replaces the most accurate kicker in franchise history after the Bears released Gould on Sunday night.
