Robbie Gould embraces San Francisco and becomes a tourist

Apr 10, 2017 at 11:13 AM--

New San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould was among the first group of free agents to sign with the team on the first day of the new league year. With the 49ers' offseason program kicking off on Monday, Gould returned to the Bay Area to join his new teammates.

Since moving to the Bay Area, he has taken on the role of a tourist in San Francisco and its surrounding areas. "I've visited Facebook, taken pictures at the Golden Gate Bridge, and walked through the 49ers Museum," Gould wrote in a blog post.

Walking through the 49ers Museum at Levi's Stadium is certainly a good way to familiarize yourself with the team's rich history. The 20,000 square foot facility is a popular destination for fans of the team.

Gould replaces veteran kicker Phil Dawson, who kicked for the 49ers since 2013 and signed with the Arizona Cardinals last month. He was signed by the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2005 and has also spent time with the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens. Over his 13-year 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.

The new 49ers kicker seems excited to be part of the team, saying the following within his blog:

"Playing for one of the most historic franchises in the NFL is surely an honor. My dreams of simply hoping to play in the NFL has developed into one of genuine gratitude for the recurring opportunity. Vince Lombardi Trophy, let's bring you to San Francisco this year!"
