Robbie Gould has not signed franchise tag, will continue holdout

The San Francisco 49ers will not have their placekicker with them when their mandatory minicamp begins this week.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Niners kicker Robbie Gould still has not signed his franchise tender. There has been no indication of if or when he plans to report to the team.

Gould had been seeking a long-term extension from the 49ers before they used the franchise tag on him, and a report back in April claimed he broke off negotiations and asked the team to trade him. Niners GM John Lynch has expressed confidence that Gould will be a part of the team in 2019.

Gould is one of the best kickers in NFL history and ranks second all-time with a field goal accuracy of 87.745. He doesn’t have much leverage now that the 49ers have used the tag on him, but the situation has the potential to get ugly.
