49ers place franchise tag on Robbie Gould K

Recommended Posts

Robbie has been outstanding glad we get him for one more season.

So #49ers officially tag Robbie Gould, who's made 72-of-75 FG attempts with SF. Overall, Gould's gone 40-of-41 from under 40 yards, 26-of-28 from 40 yards or more, and 6-of-6 from 50 yards or more.

smh. 
 

Hopefully in the next CBA the Players negotiate the franchise tag away. Absolutely horrible.

I mean they had to. He was jumping ship otherwise. 

*He was jumping ship to Chicago.

But yeah, this has to be done. I know Robbie badly wanted to go back to Chicago, but the Niners couldn't let him go, especially in a year they will be wanting to make a serious playoff push. Will be aggressive in the offseason and draft to get that accomplished. So Robbie will be able to at least play for a potential playoff team that he badly wanted to play for.

As a Patriots fan, I'm jealous of the Niners having Gould. He belongs BACK on the Pats. Screw Gostkowski.

we still have 70 million in cap space and just tagged a kicker who has hit like 95% of his kicks for us.

Not to mention he is arguably the most clutch kicker ever.

He's one of the best kickers in the NFL, not sure I would give him a franchise tag though.

Really the Bears are idiots for ever letting Robbie go.

I don't understand this

"hes a top 5 player but I don't want to pay him like hes a top 5 player"

The tag is 5 million for kickers, and like all FTs, its the average of the top 5 highest salaries at the position.

Yes and the 9ers gave him a decent contract. Now they're willing to double it to keep him in Santa Clara. I don't see anything wrong with that.

Chicago had their chance and they let him go.

Why it's only 5 million. For the best kicker arguably the past two seasons.
