Kevin Butler Told Robbie Gould to Stay Away from Chicago By Erik Lambert - May 1st, 2019
A lot of people have held out hope that veteran kicker Robbie Gould may yet find his way back home to Chicago. It seems like such a storybook tale. The son cast out after falling from grace returns from a journey to save his home. Books have been written about less. For a moment, it looks like the wishes may come true.
Gould declared he would cease contract negotiations with the San Francisco 49ers and demanded a trade. Something GM John Lynch declined was going to happen. Since then the 37-year old kicker has remained silent, though a loud and clear message was sent when he sold his Illinois home for $1.15 million. It seems he may be resigning himself to his fate.
