Kicker Robbie Gould, one of the first free agents signed by the San Francisco 49ers when coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch took over in 2017, will be around for at least one more season after he received the team’s franchise tag on Tuesday, sources told Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The 2019 franchise tag for punters and kickers is projected to be just more than $5 million on the one-year tender offer. That money would be fully guaranteed should Gould elect to sign it, and the two sides can continue working on a long-term deal until the July 15 deadline.
Since 2009, half of the 12 kickers that have received the franchise tag them have gone on to sign new contracts with the team that tagged them.
