Gould agreed to a two-year deal with the 49ers, CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 49ers decided to get a bit younger at the kicker position, letting 42-year-old Phil Dawson walk in favor of the 35-year-old free agent. Gould was the model of consistency with the Bears prior to being released last season. He latched on with the Giants and proved that he was still a reliable option, hitting all 10 of his field goal attempts (albeit none of the 50-plus variety). The 49ers were one of the lowest-scoring offenses in the NFL last year, but if their new GM and head coach can improve the offensive output, then Gould could be a consistent fantasy contributor in an era where reliable kickers have been few and far between.

Gould will test the market as a free agent, Jordan Raanan of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gould signed with the Giants mid-way through the 2016 season and was 12-for-12 on field goals with the team in the regular season and playoffs, though he did miss three extra points. The veteran is an 85.9 percent kicker for his career and will be entering his age-35 season in 2017.

Gould made both of his short field-goal attempts in Sunday's wild card loss to the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Gould took over early in the year for Josh Brown who was released and hit all 10 of his regular-season field-goal attempts and both of his ones in the postseason. He did miss three PATs, however, and none of his field goals were from beyond 50 yards. It's unclear yet whether the Giants will bring him back for 2017.

Gould was 1-for-1 on field goal attempts and 1-for-1 on extra point attempts in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

In a defensive battle Sunday, Gould helped give the Giants the edge, knocking through 39-yard attempt midway though the third quarter which would eventually make the difference in the game. The veteran kicker has served as a viable replacement for Josh Brown, as he remains perfect on field goal attempts this season.

Gould signed a contract with the Giants on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gould's signing with the Giants comes on the heels of the team announcing that Josh Brown would not travel with the team to London for Week 7. With the reopening of Brown's domestic violence case, Gould could be the team's kicker for more than just one game. Gould made 33 of 39 field goal attempts with Chicago last season, including seven of nine from over 50 yards.

Gould was informed Sunday of his impending release, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old Gould has never played for another team, making 166 regular-season appearances since the beginning of the 2005 campaign, with an 85.4-percent conversion rate on field-goal attempts. His release came as a surprise, even after he missed two extra-point attempts in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns. It's unclear who will replace Gould as the Chicago kicker, but there's no question the switch will save cap room.

Gould went 3-for-3 on field goals, but missed both of his attempts Thursday against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

After missing some big kicks for the Bears in 2015, the coaches couldn't have been pleased with him missing on two extra points. However, his firmly entrenched as the team's kicker and should be a borderline starting option in 12-team leagues.

Gould made both of his field goal attempts Thursday against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

On each occasion, Gould was called upon, and connected, from 36 yards away. However, after the Bears scored their two touchdowns, they went for two-point conversions, holding the kicker to six points on the night. Despite a couple of high-profile field goal misses last year, he's firmly entrenched as the team's kicker, and although not an upper-tier fantasy option, he's a serviceable starter.

Gould finished the 2015 season with a 33-for-39 mark on field-goal attempts and a 28-for-29 mark on extra-point tries.

EDGE Analysis

The 33 made field goals were a club record, breaking Gould's own mark of 32 set in the 2006 season. Despite that achievement, the season still seemed like a disappointment for Gould, who missed critical field-goal attempts in eventual losses to the 49ers and Redskins in Weeks 13 and 14 that effectively quashed the Bears' slim playoff hopes. However, given his strong overall body of work since joining the Bears, Gould should retain plenty of job security heading into 2016.

Gould nailed all three of his extra-point attempts, but failed to connect on a potential game-tying 50-yard field-goal attempt with less than two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of an eventual 24-21 loss to the Redskins on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

For the second consecutive week, Gould failed to convert a clutch kick, as he pushed the 50-yard try wide right. Though it's been a rough two weeks for Gould, who missed a game-winning 36-yarder in an overtime loss to the 49ers on Dec. 6, but the veteran's excellent track record over the course of his lengthy career will continue to give him plenty of job security.
