Former Bears great Gould sells north suburban home

Former Bears kicker Robbie Gould sold his north suburban home, just as Bears fans were hoping the team’s all-time scorer would be coming back to the team. Gould and his wife, Lauren, bought the house for $1.2 million in 2009, in the middle of his 11-season tenure with the Bears. They listed it in 2018 for $1.3 million and cut the asking price to less than $1.2 million in February. It sold last week for $1 million. Dina Lissner of Compass had the listing. Gould, now on the San Francisco 49ers, has been holding out from the team and demanding a trade. [Chicago Tribune]
