Robbie Gould and the San Francisco 49ers Stay in a standoff Concerning the kicker’s future with the franchise.
It does not seem like Gould is prepared to acquiesce quietly into the franchise tag and execute the year just yet.
“It’s a complex scenario,” Gould told NBC Chicago. “The way I have kind of approached it is, I want to spend some time with my family. And I allow my agent handle it, and if anything comes up I must make a decision or take the know, he’ll call me and let me know. But right now there is nothing to actually understand, and I am just enjoying being home and being at Chicago.

“I’m at a point in my career where my family is what’s likely to dictate the decisions that I make.”
Gould spent his first 11 seasons with the Bears and makes his offseason home in Chicago. The 14-year veteran is expected to be a free agent following this season, and presumably — given his desire to play near his loved ones and the Bears’ struggles to pin down a reliable kicker — would be enjoying for the McCaskey family again were it not for the 49ers slapping him with the franchise tag. Gould has requested a trade. The notion was rejected by the 49ers.
The kicker skipped offseason workouts — because he’s not signed the 4.971 million franchise tender, like Le’Veon Bell last season, he cannot be fined for missing mandatory minicamp.
The 36-year-old’s first remarks on his own impasse with the 49ers came through the Robbie Gould Celebrity Golf Invitational at Medinah Country Club to raise funds for Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Gould’s ties to the city run deep.
“This city’s been amazing,” Gould said, via NBC Chicago. “No matter where I’ve gone, no matter where I’ve lived, regardless of where I have playedChicago has always been home.”
Regardless of whether the kicker prefers to play with his home group or not, the 49ers restrain his rights. His choices at this point are to sign the label and perform the season, pull a Le’Veon Bell, or pray the Niners have a change of heart.
Considering that the Bears published Gould in 2016 after two down seasons, the kicker has been among the most precise booters from the NFL, nailing 82 of 85 field objectives. It’s not a surprise the Niners want to keep him the following season.
The 49ers and Gould have until July 15 to hit a long-term remedy, but unless the veteran is playing an impressive negotiating game by pining to return to his home team, that deadline appears to be inclined to pass without movement.
