CAIRO SANTOS RUMORS & GOSSIP

It might get loud: That noise you hear is Santos pushing Succop at Chiefs camp

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- BOOM! Cairo Santos turns heads. No. Wait. THUD! He wounds ears. It's a brontosaurus in a tutu, dancing through the tulips. No. Hang on. THOOM! It's like Thor taking that giant hammer of his and playing table tennis with your head. Yeah. That's it. THUD! "With no wind, or indoors, (the range is) 60," Santos, the rookie kicker who's been...

Tulane Kicker Cairo Santos A Possible Rookie Target for Saints?

I've been saying long and loud that the Saints need to have a serious kicker competition this camp. If Shayne Graham wins the competition, he was recently re-signed by the way, then fine. But I want him to have to earn it. Currently the Saints have Graham and youngster Derek Dimke from Illinois. Dimke, 23, has had try outs with three other teams but has yet to make a real NFL...

Video: Here Is Cairo Santos’ 48-Yard Field Goal That Sailed Wide Left To Give UL-Lafayette The Win

Tulane’s first bowl appearance since 2002 didn’t go exactly as planned by the Green Wave, but it was one seriously entertaining game. Louisiana-Lafayette got off to an incredible start and blew open a 21-0 early in the second quarterback, but Tulane hadn’t come this far to simply roll over. The Green Wave fought back admirably, tying the game 21-21 in the third quarter after...
