Chicago Bears and Robbie Gould agree to a 4 year contract extension


The Chicago Bears let the media know that they had a special announcement to make, which left some fans on Twitter scratching their heads.

An announcement to make before the final week of the regular season? I figured it would have to do with someone being re-signed and that’s exactly what it was.

According to Adam Oestmann on Twitter, the Chicago Bears and kicker Robbie Gould have agree’d to a four year contract extension which keeps him in Chicago through 2017.

Gould has been a huge part of this Chicago Bears team ever since he arrived in 2005. He’s made some clutch kicks for this team throughout the years and deserved a contract extension after becoming one of the teams all-time scorer’s.

This was an excellent decision made by Phil Emery and the Chicago Bears. Gould spoke to the media, talking about how he someday hopes to retire a Chicago Bear.

Here are some tweets that have been provided by Adam Oestmann.
