49ers K Robbie Gould signs a two-year extension worth $7.25 million


The 49ers had a decision to make on kicker #Robbie #Gould by #December 31. #On #Wednesday morning, the #Niners didn’t just pick #Gould’s option up. They agreed to a new deal. ESPN’s #Adam #Schefter reported that the 49ers signed #Gould to a two-year, $7.25 million contract that’s fully guaranteed. #Gould is now under contract with the 49ers through 2022.

#Gould remains one of the best kickers in NFL history, but he hasn’t played well recently. #He had his worst season in 2019, but once long snapper #Kyle #Nelson returned, if that was the reason, #Gould was once again automatic. #Some felt like the #Niners may not pick #Gould’s option up with him missing two field goals and an extra point in #Week 16, but that felt like recency bias.

The way #Kyle #Shanahan spoke about #Gould on #Saturday made it seem like this move was inevitable. #We don’t have the contract details, but this deal comes out cheaper than the last contract #Gould signed if we’re going by averages. #Gould’s last deal had an average of $4.75 million. #If this contract is straightforward, which is rarely the case for #San #Francisco, #Gould’s average comes to $3.625 million per season.

#Rob #Guerrera said, “kickers are like lawyers. #Everyone hates them until they need one.” The #Niners are betting on #Gould’s reputation and not his recent history. #Did they make the correct decision?
