Former Pro Bowl kicker announces retirement

One of the most accurate kickers in NFL history is calling it quits.

Robbie Gould, a former kicker for the San Francisco 49ers, announced his retirement on Thursday. 

 The 41-year-old pondered on his career and expressed his desire to spend more time with his family.

"To have the kind of playing-career experi ence that I had in the NFL was nothing short of amazing, and my level of gratitude for the journey —

 the ups, the downs, the in-between — is immeasurable," Gould said in a post on Instagram.

"In short, my NFL story is hard to believe, and it's full of 'pinch-me' moments."

"And now what?" I'm quite fortunate. My favorite team has been waiting for me to join them full-time from home —

with no commitment required. I'm looking forward to spending more time with my family and focusing my energy 

on things that are important to me outside of football.
