49ers sign former Giants K Robbie Gould

Mar 9, 2017 at 3:47 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have signed former New York Giants kicker Robbie Gould to a two-year deal. The deal was first reported by Jordan Raanan of ESPN but then confirmed by the team minutes later.


Gould, who was signed by the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2005, has also spent time with the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens. Over his career, he has completed 85.9-percent of his field goal attempts, making 286 of 333.

Gould was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2006 and was a First-Team All-Pro that same year. He played for the Giants last season after kicker Josh Brown' legal troubles surfaced. Signed on October 20, Gould made all 10 of his field goal attempts with his longest being from 47 yards out.

There is a whole lot of speculation right now that Antonio Brown might rejoin quarterback Tom Brady in Tampa Bay. The veteran wide receiver played one game last year with Brady in New England and even hauled in a touchdown for the Patriots. Of course, that story has already been disputed. Should Brown land with an NFC team like the Buccaneers, though, some believe that it could be enough to shift the balance of power within the conference. One former NFL executive turned analyst, Michael Lombardi, thinks that should Brown land with a team in the NFC West, like the Seattle Seahawks, it would shift the balance of power within the division away from the San Francisco
