49ers use franchise tag on kicker Robbie Gould, per report

Robbie Gould, the long-time Bears kicker whose family still lives in Chicago, isn't going home. He'll receive a substantial raise by making north of $5 million guaranteed on the tag.

- None of their other soon-to-be free agents. Still, the Bears brought in a few options before letting Gould go, and that will not be the end of the list. "We'd like to reward him for that".

The 49ers have heaps of cap space and while the franchise tag is top five player money, that comes at the position.

Gould is the first Niners player to be tagged since safety Dashon Goldson in 2012 and the first kicker the team has opted to give the designation since the tag's inception.

Gould converted more than 85 percent of his field goals and missed just four of his 383 extra points as a member of the Bears from 2005-15.

Dr Kaslow, who teaches at Emory University's school of medicine, said that some children who are more vulnerable may be drawn to such grim content.

The Bears can not miss on a kicker as they have gone through five since letting Gould walk. However, if Gould were to sign with another team, that team would have to send two first-round picks to the 49ers and the chances of a team giving up two picks for a kicker is about zero percent. Gould made all but one field-goal attempt in 2019 and is 72 of 75 the last two seasons.

"They've said they wanna bring me back, obviously".

Shanahan's desire to keep Gould can be traced to previous teams he's coached in which kicking has been a serious issue. Additionally, Gould's 96.0 field goal percentage ranks as the second-highest in National Football League history over a two-year span (minimum 32 attempts).

Minnesota just has to make sure they actually take their search for a new kicker seriously this year.

"Obviously I still have an affinity for the city of Chicago", Gould told the Sun-Times in Atlanta, where he was a Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee. "Will it happen? I don't know".
