Gould, who was let go by the Bears prior to the 2016 season and is currently with the San Francisco 49’ers, took fan questions on his Twitter account, and he teased fans a bit with talk of a Bears reunion:
That wasn’t the only question Gould received about playing with the Bears again. The team ended up waiving Connor Barth on Monday and signed Cairo Santos as their new kicker, but Gould is still focused on what he’s doing with San Francisco.
“I enjoyed my time as a Bear but I’m pretty excited about what we have going on with the 49’ers,” he tweeted.
Gould did say that he would move back to the Chicago area when his career was over, saying that the city “will be home.”
He also insisted that there are no hard feelings despite his exit from the city, and that he’s still rooting for his former teammates to succeed.
“I have no spite. I had an incredible run in Chicago,” he said. “I want them to do well because my old teammates deserve it.”
Gould has made 19 of 21 field goals with the 49’ers this season, bringing his career field goal percentage back up to 86.2 percent, ranking him among the most accurate kickers in the history of the league. He is the Bears’ all-time leader in a slew of categories, including points scored.
