Interesting structure here. I don't know if I've seen a deal like this one.

In before anyone who doesn't understand contracts relative of salary cap and position value complain about our kicker's contract.

I actually would like clarification of how this contract works. Have you seen a deal like this one where there is a two year option basically?

I've seen deals where the last year is non-guaranteed or partially guaranteed, but don't think I've ever seen this before.

So for sure the first two years are guaranteed. Then does Gould have to commit to the last two years or something?

Other than rookie contracts, I don't know that I have seen option years in the NFL, so I don't know how that works. Will need to see one of the Matts discuss it. 

Wild guess- Gould has control over the option. Seems that the guy who went from asking for a trade because he missed Chicago would probably not agree to a contract where the team had two controllable extra years built-in. But that's assuming everything has been reported correctly to date.

I believe I read that it’s a team option and the option for 21-22 that has to be exercised by week 16 the year prior. I’ll see if I can find where I read that again.

Just saw Maiocco post it:

"The option in the contract, which the 49ers must pick up by Week 17 of the 2020 season, helped both sides feel more at ease, according to Schefter."

I remember Russell Okung had a contract with Denver, sort of similar to this. He signed a five year deal but it was really a one year deal with a four year option which Denver would decline.

This is great news! He has been one of the best kickers in the game for a while now, I have no issues paying him like a top kicker. 

Was not expecting this, but it's definitely some great news to wake up to!

Okay that makes sense. I figured it was either the team or Gould having to pick up the option.

Depending on our cap situation next season, that probably determines if we pick up his option or choose to go a cheaper route.

YES! Gould's contract drama is over. Some of the commentators in the News forum made like  this would go toward him sitting out...I didn't think he would do that. Probably wishful negative thinking on their part. Not happening now! B|

The 49ers can be bad at addressing needs(safety) so I'm glad we wont have a new vancant position that they might not address correctly. Looking forward to this year!
