Financial terms weren't immediately available.
Gould has made 84 of 99 field goal attempts and 99 of 100 points-after-touchdown with the Bears. He hit 31 of 36 field goal attempts last season and made the Pro Bowl after the 2006 season, when he scored 143 points.
Gould hit a game-winning 49-yarder in overtime to send the Bears past Seattle in the playoff opener following the 2005 season. Chicago went on to the Super Bowl.
Gould was an undrafted free agent out of Penn State in 2005. He first signed with New England, then spent time with Baltimore before going to the Bears in October of that year.
