Colts newcomers Andre Johnson, Frank Gore fitting in fine
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Colts skill position newcomers Andre Johnson and Frank Gore have already shown a "relatively smooth" transition to their new team, Chuck Pagano told ESPN.
The wide receiver and running back performed so well in OTA work Wednesday that Pagano claimed that it appeared they had been with the organization for years.
"Pretty seamless," Pagano said about their work. "They don't miss a beat as far as the playbook goes, knowing what to do. Every time I see them in the huddle, break a huddle, to me it looks like they're going the right direction. They're lining up right. They're very talented, talented guys. They fit right into the locker room. They're professionals. ... They're not talkers. They're workers, they're doers."
Both veterans, however, have shown signs that their best days are behind them. The 33-year-old Johnson failed to reach 1,000 yards receiving last season for Houston for the first time in his last seven full seasons. The 32-year-old Gore managed another 1,000-yard performance in 2014, but his total was its lowest of any in a full season since 2008.
49ers Carlos Hyde sorry to see Frank Gore leave
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Frank Gore left the 49ers for the Colts, giving Carlos Hyde a chance to replace him as starting running back. Despite the opportunity, Hyde isn't happy about the change.
"I wanted him to come back," Hyde said, per 49ers.com. "When I found out he wasn't coming back, I was like, 'Are you really leaving?' I was shocked."
"I wasn't expecting to come in and take Frank Gore's spot," Hyde added. "It was more of a, 'Come in and learn from Frank Gore.' That's exactly what I did."
The biggest thing he learned from his year with Gore was not to be in a hurry to make plays. "Be patient on runs, let the play develop and not be so quick," he said. "I felt like last year I was being too quick on plays and not letting them develop. I was missing reads."
Frank Gore chose Colts because they offered 'best fit'
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(3/11/15) Frank Gore was really close to joining the Eagles.
But after weighing his options over the weekend, he felt like he had a better chance for success in Indianapolis. A lot of that had to do with the style the Colts run, which is more similar to what he experienced in San Francisco than what he'd encounter in Philadelphia.
"I felt like I wanted to see what the best fit was for me," Gore said, via the Indianapolis Star. "Greg Roman and Pep [Hamilton] coached on the same team in college. Similar styles. ... That's why I came here."
Gore was referring to Roman, his coordinator with the 49ers, and Hamilton, the Colts' offensive coordinator, coaching together at Stanford under Jim Harbaugh.
Gore mentioned that the Eagles recruited him hard to join them but that he had to change his mind when it came time to sign.
"The Eagles came and they really pressed and they really wanted me," Gore said. "When you're a free agent, you want to be wanted. [But] I always wanted to come play for the Colts."
Colts and RB Frank Gore agree to terms
|(3/10/15) Running back Frank Gore and the Colts have agreed to terms on a contract, per the team's official website.
Gore had a deal worked out with the Eagles before backing out at the last minute. The 31-year-old will now join the Colts.
During his time with the 49ers, he rushed 2,442 times for 11,073 yards and 64 touchdowns.
Report: Frank Gore plans to sign three-year, $12 million deal with Colts
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/10/15) Frank Gore is planning on signing a three-year, $12 million deal with the Colts, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The contract is expected to be similar to the one he turned down from Philadelphia, with approximately $7.5 million guaranteed. The signing won't become official until the league year begins at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
Gore backed out because of a deal with the Eagles because was concerned with Chip Kelly's "overbearing approach," and is seeking to play for a contender.
Gore, 31, totaled 11,073 yards and 64 touchdowns on the ground over his 10-year career with the 49ers. He is the 20th player in NFL history to reach 11,000 rushing yards in a career.

|It's not often we'll recommend running backs who are getting up in age and workload, but Frank Gore still might be able to help Fantasy owners this year despite being 32 and 10 years into his career. He leaves San Francisco for the first time for Indianapolis, and the Colts should help him provide enough value as a weekly starter in the majority of leagues. Gore, who has at least 1,100 rushing yards in seven of his past nine years, will play in an explosive offense led by Andrew Luck, so he shouldn't see many defenders at the line of scrimmage. And after averaging just 18 catches a season the past four years, coach Chuck Pagano has said Gore will be involved as a receiver, which is important in this offense since the three main running backs (Ahmad Bradshaw, Dan Herron and Trent Richardson) combined for 86 catches, 702 yards and six touchdowns last year. Gore had at least 45 catches in four of his first six years, so he's capable of playing that role. We like Gore as a No. 2 running back in all formats, and he's worth drafting as early as Round 5.
