49ers' Robbie Gould: Headed for franchise tag
Gould is expected to receive the franchise tag, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The 49ers got their money's worth on Gould's two-year, $4 million contract, with the veteran converting 72 of 75 field-goal attempts (96 percent) and 55 of 59 extra-point tries (93.2 percent). The 36-year-old is now headed for a significant raise, be it through a long-term contract or a franchise tag for approximately $5 million. Given their abundance of cap space and determination to compete for the playoffs in 2019, the Niners presumably won't allow Gould to slip away. His likely draft slotting of top-10 kicker should be justified as long as Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) avoids major rehab setbacks.
