Panthers trade kicker Zane Gonzalez to 49ers

The Carolina Panthers have traded kicker Zane Gonzalez to the San Francisco 49ers, his agent announced on Twitter on Friday.

“Excited for @ZGonzalez_5 being traded to the @49ers,” agent Mike McCartney wrote.

The teams later announced that Gonzalez was headed to San Francisco for conditional late-round 2025 compensation. The Panthers had a surplus of kickers after signing Eddy Pineiro on Thursday to a new two-year deal.

Gonzalez did not play in a game last season. He was placed on the injured reserve after suffering a quad injury in the preseason contest.

Gonzalez is entering his sixth season in the NFL after a stellar collegiate career with Arizona State.

The 27-year-old Gonzalez was selected in the seventh round of the NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns in 2017. He has played for the Browns (2017), Arizona Cardinals (2018-20) and Carolina (2021). He had made 91 of 113 career field-goal attempts (80.5 percent) and 127 of 134 extra-point attempts (94.8 percent).
