Giants Sign Former Bears K Robbie Gould

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that former Bears K Robbie Gould is flying to London to join the Giants and kick for them in their Week 7 matchup against the Rams.

  • Chris Mortensen reports that Gould receives a one-year contract that’s prorated for the remaining 11 games of the season.

The Giants had Randy Bullock fill in for Brown earlier in the years while Brown served his one-game suspension, but it appears as though they would prefer to give Gould a shot.

This comes after the news that Josh Brown won’t join the team in London after new documents surfaced that show he admitted to physically and mentally abusing his ex-wife.

Despite the domestic abuse issues, New York has said that they plan to support him in the time being while the league looks into the new information.

Gould, 34, originally signed on with the Patriots back in 2005 as an undrafted free agent, but he lasted just a few months in New England before joining the Ravens briefly and later signing on with the Bears.

Gould was in the fourth year of his five-year, $17.925 million contract when he was released by the Bears in a move that freed up $3 million in available cap space.

In 2015, Gould appeared in all 16 games for the Bears and converted 33 of 39 field goal attempts (84.6 percent) to go along with 28 of 29 extra point tries (96.6 percent) and 39 touchbacks.
