Bears | Huston not kicking well enough to take Gould's job

K.C. Johnson, of the Chicago Tribune, reports Chicago Bears rookie PK Josh Huston is expected to challenge incumbent PK Robbie Gould for the team's place kicker job, but Huston feels he hasn't kicked well enough yet to do so. Gould is trying to improve his long-range kicking skills. Gould went just 3-for-8 from that distance last season, missing from 48 yards, 47 twice, 44 and 43. A penalty nullified his only attempt from 50-plus yards, a successful 52-yarder in the season finale against Minnesota. Gould feels the competition can only help him get better. "Robbie came from off the radar and is getting more consistent," special teams coach Dave Toub said. "And Josh is more than a camp leg. It's fun watching everything play out."
