Gould kicked for the Chicago Bears from 2005-2015. He was one of their most consistent players, making first-team All Pro in 2006. The Bears released him in September.
The Giants signed him to replace their placekicker, Josh Brown. New information was released on Wednesday about domestic violence charges filed against Brown last year.
His ex-wife gave the King County (Wash.) Sheriff’s Department Brown’s journal entries. In those, he details many years of abusing her and other women. The charges against him were dropped last year.
Giants president and CEO John Mara said on WFAN 660 that Brown admitted to him in person today that he abused his ex-wife.
