ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to scoop the story:

The new agreement camejust beforeMonday’s 1pm deadline for franchise-tagged players to ink multi-year deals. Per Schefter, Gould’s agent, Brian Mackler, and 49ers executive Paraag Marathe had been working on the pact for months.

“Over the years, Robbie has established himself as one of the best at his position in the NFL, which is precisely why we were so committed to working out a new contract with him,” General Manager John Lynch said in a statement. “I would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make this deal come to fruition. We are very happy to start off the year on the right foot with this agreement in place so that Robbie can get back with his teammates and focus on making the most out of the upcoming season.”

Back in April, Gould had requested a trade to Chicago, where he makes his home. The 49ers had no interest in acquiescing to the demands of the veteran, who has starred in Santa Clara. In two seasons with the Niners, Gould is 72 of 75 on kicks.
