The Chicago Bears and place kicker Robbie Gould agreed to terms on a new 5 year extension. The deal keeps Gould in blue and orange until the 2013 season.
The Penn State product is the most accurate field goal kicker in Bears history among those with at least 50 attempts, having connected on 84 of 99 tries (84.8 percent) in three seasons.
“I’m really excited,” said Gould, who was entering the final year of his original contract. “I’m excited to stay in the city of Chicago and to be a Chicago Bear. This is one of those opportunities that’s once-in-a-lifetime and life-changing, and I’m just excited to have it.
“I’m excited that my hard work has paid off, but I’m definitely not done working hard and making field goals and kicking kickoffs. That’s what I get paid to do. Now it’s just a matter of being able to go out there and have fun, relax and enjoy it.”
Our offense is in such a state of confusion it helps to know they are attempting to keep our defense and special teams at a high level. If they can get Tommie Harris and Devin Hester extended and then throw a little dough at Urlacher to keep him happy, it would go a long way to get our minds off of still not having a franchise QB yet.
