The Bears announced Friday that the team has signed kicker Robbie Gould to a four-year extension. ProFootballTalk reports the deal is worth $15 million over four years with $9 million guaranteed.

Gould was slated to be a free agent at the end of this season. He has been the Bears’ kicker since 2005 and is currently regarded as the second most accurate placekicker in league history.

The 32-year-old kicker made 26-of-29 field goals in 2013. He has converted at least 83 percent of his field goal attempts in every year since his rookie season in 2005. He has also forced 35 touchbacks on 83 kickoffs.
