The San Francisco 49ers and kicker Robbie Gould remain at an impasse regarding his 2019 playing status.

Yet to sign the one-year, $4.971-million franchise tag tender, Gould is currently in Chicago with his family and made it clear Tuesday that's what will drive his football decisions going forward.

"It's a complicated situation," Gould told NBC Sports Chicago. "I think the way I've kind of approached it is, I want to spend time with my family. And I let my agent handle it, and if anything comes up that I have to make a decision or be in the know, then he'll call me and let me know.

"I'm at a point in my career where my family is what's going to dictate the decisions that I make," he continued, according to NBC's Matt Maiocco.

Gould requested a trade from San Francisco in April after he was given the franchise tag. The two parties have until July 15 to work out a long-term contract, but the veteran kicker told the team he won't be negotiating a new deal.

The 36-year-old has spent the last two seasons with the 49ers following a one-year stint with the New York Giants in 2016 and an 11-year tenure with the Chicago Bears before that.

Chicago has a major need at kicker, but Gould didn't confirm whether he'd prefer to reunite with the NFC North club.
