Kyle Shanahan says the San Francisco 49ers won\'t grant Robbie Gould\'s request to be traded.
Earlier this week, Gould and his agent told the 49ers that the kicker wants to be traded back closer to his Chicago home.
\"We love having Robbie here,\" Shanahan said. \"We understand that he doesn\'t want to live here long-term and he\'s made that clear to us and we get that. But we do have a franchise tag and he\'s that good of a kicker that he\'s worth franchising. Unfortunately, we know we\'re not going to have him here long-term. I think that\'s been pretty clear. No hard feelings about that. I can understand his reasons but I\'m pretty excited to have a good kicker this year.\"
