Well, they did it! They signed that missing piece from the soon-to-be dynastic 49ers. They signed their placekicker! Robbie (I’m good as gold, just ask me) Gould signed a 4 year, $19 million deal to remain with the 49ers. Well, it’s actually a guaranteed 2-year deal that the team can bail on.
Crazy thing is, he isn’t the highest paid kicker. That distinction belongs to the Ravens Justin Tucker. He makes a cool $5 mill a year. What seemed like a barely veiled ploy by Gould to get more money, we,, he got it. And, as long as everyone is happy, hey it’s all water under the bridge. As Winder said, it’s now one less thing to worry about. I would have preferred a draft pick or 2, but as noted, everyone’s happy.
In other important news, Jimmy G has been cleared to fully participate in training camp.
