Bears Agree to 4-Year Extension With Gould
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- The Chicago Bears have agreed to a four-year contract extension with kicker Robbie Gould through the 2017 season.

The Bears announced the deal Friday.

Gould has converted 86 percent of his attempts in his career and ranks as the third most accurate kicker in NFL history behind Mike Vanderjagt (86.5 percent) and Nate Kaeding (86.2 percent).

He has hit 26 of 29 field goals this season, including a franchise record 58-yarder against Cincinnati in the season opener.
