Kicker Robbie Gould signed a four-year contract extension with the 49ers on Monday to put a bow on what Gould called a “weird offseason” a few hours later.Gould got franchise tagged by the 49ers Noah Fant Jersey , saw the team flirt with Stephen Gostkowski before Gostkowski re-signed with the Patriots in April and requested a trade a short time later. That trade request came with a report that Gould was not going to continue negotiations on a long-term deal and the kicker said he was unsure if he’d report to the 49ers at all, but things changed quickly over the last few days.There was a lot of speculation about Gould wanting a move back to the Bears because he spent the first 11 years of his career there, still lives there in the offseason and talked about wanting to stay close to his family, but Gould told Adam Schefter of ESPN that talks sparked back up on Sunday and that the 49ers made an “aggressive push” that reached the finish line.“Who knows what would have happened if something didn’t get done , but the 49ers stepped up big time to get this done,” Gould said. “They stepped outside the box, had an open mind and we were able to get something done today.”Gould said his family will be staying in Chicago during the 2019 season because his son’s been enrolled in kindergarten for the coming school year, but that could change in the coming years because Gould’s set to be spending a lot of time in California. When Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri missed a 23-yard field goal on Saturday in Kansas City Drew Lock Jersey , people were shocked: How could the great Vinatieri miss an easy pick in a big game?Actually, no one should have been surprised. Vinatieri does it a lot.Although Vinatieri is best known for his big kicks in big games, including in the snow in the “Tuck Rule” game and two Super Bowl game-winners, Vinatieri has been wildly inconsistent in the postseason and has actually been a below-average kicker in the playoffs over the whole of his 23-year career.Since Vinatieri entered the NFL in 1996 , he is one of 35 kickers who have attempted at least 10 postseason field goals. Of those 35, Vinatieri ranks just 22nd in field goal percentage.Vinatieri is 56-for-69 in the playoffs in his career, and while it’s nice that he’s lasted long enough and played for good enough teams to attempt 69 postseason field goals, that’s an accuracy rate of just 81 percent. That really isn’t very good by modern kicker standards.Plenty of today’s kickers have been more accurate in the postseason than Vinatieri: The much-maligned Steelers kicker Chris Boswell is 15-for-15 in the playoffs. Denver’s Brandon McManus is 10-for-10 in the playoffs. Stephen Hauschka is 20-for-21 in the playoffs. Matt Bryant is 14-for-15 in the playoffs. Justin Tucker is 9-for-10 in the playoffs. Mason Crosby is 26-for-29 in the playoffs. Vinatieri’s successor in New England T.J. Hockenson Jersey , Stephen Gostkowski, is 34-for-38 in the playoffs.Fortunately for Vinatieri, the kicks we remember are the famous ones. The Tuck Rule and the two Super Bowl game-winners will always be the first kicks that people remember about Vinatieri. And his incredible longevity while playing for good teams make him likely to end up in the Pro Football Hall of Fame some day. But when that day comes, we ought to consider his entire record. That includes some great kicks Justice Hill Jersey , but also some misses that other kickers would have made.
