Gould is essentially the most completed participant on the 49ers, and the second-most correct kicker in NFL historical past. His extension is price $10.5 million absolutely assured for the following two seasons. In 2021, the 49ers can decide up an possibility in Gould’s contract which might hold him with the 49ers via 2023. He’s fairly an costly kicker.
This offseason, the 49ers gave a mean of $13.5 million yearly to Gould, Jimmie Ward and Tevin Coleman mixed. In the meantime, the Ravens gave $13.75 million yearly to Earl Thomas. Would you relatively the 49ers have signed Thomas or these three?
I used to be towards the 49ers signing Thomas, as a result of he has damaged his leg twice the previous three seasons. However, I’d have signed him as a substitute of a working again, a 36-year-old kicker and a free security who has been on IR 4 instances in 5 seasons. Name me cooky.
