GIANTS SIGN ROBBIE GOULD; JOSH BROWN PLACED ON COMMISSIONER EXEMPT LIST…
The New York Giants have signed place kicker Robbie Gould to a 1-year contract. Gould will kick for the Giants on Sunday in London against the Los Angeles Rams. Place kicker Josh Brown did not travel with the Giants due to the public outcry surrounding new revelations about his past domestic violence issues. Brown has been placed on the NFL’s Reserve/Commissioner Exempt List. While he will still collect his salary, Brown will not count against the team’s 53-man roster limit.
The 34-year old Gould was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the New England Patriots after the 2005 NFL Draft. After brief stints with the Patriots and Ravens, Gould signed with the Chicago Bears in October 2005. He played 11 seasons with the Bears (2005-2015). In his last season in Chicago, Gould was 33-of-39 (84.6 percent) on field goals. Forty-seven percent of his kickoffs resulted in touchbacks.
