Who is Robbie Gould?

Robbie Gould is a professional football player in the National Football League (NFL). He is currently a placekicker for the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers.

He previously played professional football for the Chicago Bears and the New York Giants.

Gould began playing college football for the Penn State Nittany Lions at a very young age. However, before committing fully to football, he participated in a variety of sports.

He spent a decade in the NFL with the Chicago Bears after failing to be drafted in the 2005 NFL draft. During his time there, he set numerous records and accomplished a great deal, including becoming the franchise’s all-time leading scorer.

The veteran player is still active in the NFL. What’s more intriguing is his aggressive football style and constantly troubling of the opponent with his attempts, which haven’t faded.

Gould has accomplished a lot in his football career, but he has never won an NFL championship.

So, even though people are talking about his retirement, he still wants to play football for as long as his team allows him to.

He does, however, have a few plans for his retirement years. Robert once said that he had a thing for doing business and that he might end up running his corporation or working as a radio jockey or co-host for the radio show ESPN100. Nobody knows!

Professional Career, (Professional football player)

College Life

In 2001, Robbie Gould enrolled at Penn State University. He didn’t have a specific plan to pursue a career in sports at first. Robbie majored in Business Management and dedicated a significant amount of time to his studies.

He was, however, interested in soccer and participated in a few games. Gould quickly became disillusioned with soccer and switched to football.

College football coaches initially did not trust him and gave him little playing time.

So he asked his high school principal to write a recommendation letter for Joe Paterno, the then-head football coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions.

Soon after, the head coach invited him to play regularly for the Nittany Lions. However, he did not have a successful college career. He only made 39 of 61 field goals and had a field goal percentage of 63.9.

He graduated from college in 2004, and the following year, he declared for the NFL draft.

Professional Development

He went undrafted in the 2005 NFL draft, as expected because he did not have good stats in college.

However, Gould was signed by the New England Patriots before the 2005 NFL preseason. He signed another contract with the Baltimore Ravens the same year before they released him.

Unfortunately, the club was uninterested and released him three weeks later. Following that, he took a break from football to work for M&R Contracting in Pennsylvania before joining the Chicago Bears in the NFL.

The Chicago Bears

On October 8, 2005, Robbie signed with the Chicago Bears. A week later, he scored his first NFL goal against the Cleveland Browns.

They did, however, lose the match. Many weeks later, in Week 9, he scored his first game-winning goal against the New Orleans Saints. He finished his rookie season with a field goal percentage of 77%.

Robbie improved dramatically and performed admirably in his second NFL season, scoring 26 consecutive field goals. He broke Kevin Butler’s record for most field goals with this.

Furthermore, he received numerous honors, including the NFL fans’ choice for a kicker in the 2007 Pro Bowl. He was named to the Associated Press All-Pro Team in 2006. In addition, he finished the 2007 season with a high goal attempt percentage of 86.11%.

Following that, Robbie appeared in every game for the Chicago Bears in the NFL and consistently delivered until 2011.

His stats improved over time, and the mediocre performer in college became the Bears’ most beloved player.

However, he suffered a calf injury in 2012 and was forced to sit out for nearly a year.

He returned to the game the following year, scoring the Bears’ longest field goal against the Cincinnati Bengals in the season opener. On December 13, he extended his four-year contract with the team.

Furthermore, he became the second player in Chicago history to reach 1000 points during the 2013 season.

Robbie played in 12 games for the Bears in 2014, making 9 of 12 field goal attempts. However, due to a quad injury, he was forced to rest.

In 2015, he returned to the team and became the Bears’ all-time leading scorer with 1118 points.

The New York Giants

On October 20, 2016, he signed with the New York Giants after being released by the Chicago Bulls. On October 23, he made his first field goal against the Los Angeles Rams.

On November 20, he faced his former team, the Chicago Bears, and even managed to score a 46-yard field goal.

Gould had an outstanding season for the Giants, scoring on 10 of 10 field-goal attempts. However, he was released by the club at the end of the 2016 season.

49ers of San Francisco

Robbie Gould has agreed to terms with the San Francisco 49ers on a two-year contract for the 2017 NFL season.

In his debut against the Carolina Panthers, he hit a 44-yard field goal. Unfortunately, they accepted a humiliating defeat. Nonetheless, he had a fantastic first season with his new club.

Gould even scored six field goals against the Tennessee Titans, making him the first 49ers player to do so since 1996.

In 2018, he maintained his strong performance. He wanted to leave the 49ers before the 2019 season, but the team offered him a four-year contract extension worth $19 million, to which he agreed.

In the 2021 season, he suffered a groin injury and missed some time before returning to the field on November 6.

Mitch Wisnowsky, the team’s punter, was injured, so he took over punting duties and did his best. As a result, he was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Net Worth, Salary, Assets

Gould’s net worth is estimated to be $22 million.

He makes the majority of his money from league games. Since beginning his professional career, Gould has earned more than $30 million. In 2021 alone, he earned more than $10 million.
