Former Bears Kevin Butler Advice on Robbie Gould

in NFL

Robbie Gould of the San Francisco 49ers did not sign his franchise tag tender and wants out preferably Chicago Bears.
Ex-Bears Kevin Butler warned Robbie to be careful of what he is asking — “I’ve always said it to Robbie, be careful what you wish for sometimes, because it’s not easy to kick in Chicago, It’s certainly not easy to kick in San Francisco, but he’s found a situation out there where he’s been as good as there is. Can you duplicate that by coming back to Chicago? I don’t know. … It’s a scary thing to mess with your legacy.”
Robbie has a good thing going on in San Francisco and with the possible return of Jimmy the team could be a serious contender next year which can help Robbie cement his legacy. Today he is messing with that on a return to Chicago who only has good memories of him.
Robbie first-team All-Pro with the Bears in 2006 was with the team for 11 years converting 276 of 323 field goal attempts (85.4 percent), 379 of 383 extra points (98.9 percent).
The Bears released him in 2015 because his performance has dipped and with age catching up on him the Bears fans maybe expecting the same Robbie they had 4 years ago.

Robbie’s motivation is to go back home in Chicago — “The bottom line is, I’m unsure if I want to play there anymore. At this point, I have to do what’s best for me and my family back home.”

The Chicago fans and Bears organization is not going to welcome him with open arms when he starts missing goals and he could quickly go down faster than his decision to leave San Francisco.
