In a turn of events, 49ers’ franchise kicker Robbie Gould has pulled his contract proposals that he sent to San Francisco and told the team he will not negotiate or sign a long-term deal with them, and he would like to be traded, Gould said Tuesday.

I wanted Gould back since the first inkling it might be possible

never understood what happened with him getting the yips, but I reluctantly agreed a change of scenery might be good for him ... in hindsight (which is always 20-20), the Bears should have kept him and let him work through his temporary madness

I think the toxicity at Halas Hall was part of the kicking problem. That place became a complete shit-show for over a decade.

I found and bumped the thread from 2016 when Gould was cut. It is in the Halas Hall forum, and is interesting reading.

Lots of mixed feelings about him going, and even more mixed feelings on who was replacing him.

I’d love him back, and we need a kicker like him, but the pick wouldn’t be a good one. Maybe a 7th next year when we’ve got 10 of them. We certainly don’t have the draft capital this year.

the full story from Schefter :

Kicker Gould ditches talks, wants off 49ers

Quote:
San Francisco 49ers franchise kicker Robbie Gould says he has pulled the contract proposals he sent to the team and told the Niners that he will not negotiate or sign a long-term deal with them and wants to be traded.

Gould said Tuesday that if he reports at all, it will not be before the 49ers' Sept. 8 regular-season opener, making him a summer holdout.

Gould's agent, Brian Mackler, said: "At this time, we are unsure when or if he will report. It will not be prior to Sept 8, at the earliest, if at all."

The 36-year-old Gould indicated that he has gotten tired of 14 months of contract negotiations and wants to be closer to his wife and children in Chicago. After 11 years with the Bears, Gould was released. He spent 2016 with the New York Giants before signing a two-year deal with the Niners. Gould's wife and three boys under age 5 stayed in Chicago.



story points out Gould is miffed the 49ers pursued Gostkowski rather than bargain in good faith with him
