49ers K Robbie Gould Holding Out Of Minicamp


49ers K Robbie Gould will not be at minicamp this week as the veteran has still not signed his franchise tag, per Adam Schefter.

Gould has previously indicated his desire for a trade back to the Chicago Bears, where he’s spent most of his 14-year career. Gould’s wife and children still live in Chicago.

Gould told the team he would not negotiate or sign a long-term deal with the 49ers. 

However, the 49ers have said they are not trading Gould. San Francisco placed the franchise tag on Gould after failing to reach a long-term agreement so far this offseason. 

Gould, 36, 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 joining the Bears.

Gould was in the fourth year of his five-year, $17.925 million contract when he was released by the Bears at the start of the 2016 season. He later signed a one-year deal with the Giants.

The 49ers brought Gould in on a two-year, $4 million contract in 2017. He’s in line to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

In 2018, Gould appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and converted 33 of 34 field goal attempts (97.1 percent) to go along with 27 of 29 extra point tries (93.1 percent).

Niners should agree to let Gould walk if he signs a two year deal and gets to training camp. Or tell Chicago to give us their second round pick next year if they want him that bad!
