Robbie Gould won’t be at 49ers minicamp.
According to ESPN, the kicker still hasn’t signed the franchise tag the team placed on him and has opted not to attend the madatory camp.
Since Gould isn’t under contract, he can’t be fined for not attending.
Gould has expressed he’s unhappy with San Francisco and has asked to be traded, preferably closer to his hometown of Chicago.
While the Bears are in need of a kicker and still don’t have a starter selected, the 49ers said in April they aren’t trading Gould.
Gould already spent 11 seasons kicking for the Bears before he was released before the 2016 season. He spent one year with the Giants before being signed by the 49ers in 2017 to a two-year deal.
He completed 33-of-34 field goal attempts and 27-of-29 extra points during the 2018 season, his second with the 49ers.
The Niners seem prepared to move on from Gould if they need to — the team signed their other kicker, Jon Brown, to a two-year contract in March.
