As of right now I think Mason Crosby is probably the only choice for this year.

I mean there is FA Matt Bryant who is 8th in career FG% but there are a lot of teams in much worse shape than the Packers at kicker (including the team that let him go, the Falcons) and not a single one has publicly shown great interest, meaning that he is either refusing to sign during the off-season to spend more time with his family, or more likely he's got a good price tag on him and waiting for teams to start their last second bidding for him right before the season. But he's a decade older than Crosby and who knows what he would cost, apparently the Falcons thought too much as they moved on to a younger guy.

The only real other decent option, is a guy that I believe I read is leader of FG% kicks at Lambeau Field, says it's his favorite place to kick and currently #2 all time in career FG%, former Bears kicker Robbie Gould.

Gould has been franchise tagged by the 49ers. Meaning that his one year contract is gonna be in the $5 million range (higher than Crosby), he's older than Crosby, and he's currently holding out as he's demanding a trade to place closer to home so he can spend more time with family on flights home and because he loves his town (Chicago).

49ers don't want to trade him, but if they can't get him, they might have no other choice, and they might be interested in Crosby in exchange. Maybe... might cost a bit more but Green Bay is much closer to Chicago than San Francisco. Might have to throw another player in like the Packers 7th WR or SS Josh Jones, bit it could be done if both side wanted to (Packers might just prefer sticking where they're at)... though there is always the chance Gould finds.his way back to the very Kicker needy Bears team.


Gould signed a 4 year 19 million dollar deal with the 49ers in July.

Not having a reliable FG kicker or punter can cost you games.
I can’t remember who our punter was years ago, but the Packers let him walk, and I remember the GM at the time said it was a huge mistake that he let him go.
Don’t want that kind of mistake now.

Ron Wolf.
Craig Hentrich.


When Ron retired, he said one of his biggest regrets was not retaining Craig.

Strange that he would sign a new deal, and THEN holdout and make demands... normally it's the other way around.

He didn't. He was making demands while refusing to sign. Now he signed a big contract and has shown up and shut up. I think your timeline is wrong because you must have read an old article and thought it was current.
