Robbie Gould reunion with Bears will still have to wait originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Bears fans who still dream of a reunion with Robbie Gould will have to wait a little longer. On Wednesday, the 49ers announced they renegotiated their contract with Gould who will remain in San Francisco for two more seasons.

Gould took to Twitter himself to thank the 49ers.

Adam Schefter reports the two-year deal is worth $7.25 million, fully guaranteed.

Back in 2019, Gould signed a deal that was also set to expire in 2022. But according to NBC Sports Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco, the new deal will save the 49ers over a million dollars in cap space.

Gould currently ranks as the fifth-most accurate kicker in NFL history, as he’s hit 86.58% of his field goal attempts over his 16-year career. He also holds the Bears franchise record for points scored, with 1,207. That’s 91 more points than Kevin Butler who ranks second.

While kicking has been a bugaboo for the Bears ever since the team cut Gould before the 2016 season. However the Bears may have finally found a long-term solution in Cairo Santos. In his second stint in Chicago, Santos has hit 93% of his field goal attempts and 97% of his PATs.
