Frank Gore seeking $4 million per year on new deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Impending free-agent Frank Gore is seeking $4 million per year in free agency, CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports.

People around the league believe that Gore's only chance of landing the type of deal he seeks is in a return to San Francisco. 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula said Thursday that the team has already begun contract talks with the running back as well as with wide receiver Michael Crabtree, NFL.com reports.

"I mean, Frank Gore, we talk about all the things that he has -- you mentioned the leadership and the passion and all those things -- but let's not overlook that he is a prolific running back in the National Football League. I'm a big Frank Gore guy. I know those talks are ongoing now, starting this week along with our other free agents."

General manager trent Baalke also expressed a willingness to bring Gore back in 2015 Thursday, per the team's website.

"The last two games of the season, I think you saw what Frank still has left in the tank," Baalke said. "A very good football player. One of the most passionate, if not the most passionate football player I’ve ever been around. So, I still think he’s got it in him. I know that he still believes it. I talked to him the other day on the phone and we’re going to do what we can to get him back as a 49er."

Gore racked up 1,106 yards on 255 carries and grabbed 11 receptions for 111 yards while scoring a total of five touchdowns in 2014. He's crossed the 1,000-yard mark in eight of his last nine seasons.

Instagram post leads to conversation between 49ers, Frank Gore


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) An Instagram post from running back Frank Gore caught the attention of the 49ers front office.

On Sunday, Gore wrote, "I know the fans love me but I need to know if the management does," to those following him on the social media website. That caused the 49ers to call Gore, with the two parties discussing the intent behind the message.

“We reached out. He reached out back," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said, via The Sacramento Bee. "He wasn’t expecting [his post] to take legs like it did. Nor were we. He didn’t have any intentions by it and he made that very clear in our conversations.”

Baalke said the 49ers have continued talks with Gore's representation and that they are hopeful of reaching a new deal with him.

Gore is set to enter free agency for the first time in his career. With the 49ers in 2014, Gore rushed for 1,106 yards and four touchdowns. The 49ers drafted Gore in the third round of the 2005 NFL draft.

49ers GM Baalke: We'll do what we can to keep Frank Gore


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) 49ers general manager Trent Baalke told reporters that he is focused on keeping Frank Gore around with San Francisco, noting that he still thinks he can keep playing at a high level despite his age.

"The last two games of the season, I think you saw what Frank (Gore) still has left in the tank… I think he’s still got it in him," Baalke said. "We’re going to do what we can to get him back as a 49er."

Gore, who will turn 32 in May, is set to become a free agent on March 10. He 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.


Report: 49ers, Frank Gore 'engaged in contract discussions'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Just days after running back Frank Gore posted a message on Instagram about how he wasn't sure whether San Francisco wanted him back for another season, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and the 49ers have "engaged in contract discussions," according to Ed Werder of ESPN.

Drafted in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft, Gore 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. Last year, Gore also cracked the 1,000-yard threshold for the eighth time in his career, registering 1,106 rushing yards and four touchdowns. He is set to become a free agent on March 10.


Report: Frank Gore wants shot at Super Bowl title in 2015


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2015) With running back Frank Gore likely to hit the free-agent market March 10, Gore is believed to be seeking a team which will give him an opportunity to amass another 1,000-yard rushing season, while also competing for a Super Bowl title, a source told The Sacramento Bee.

The 49ers have not decided whether to bring Gore back for his 11th season with the team. The team drafted running back Carlos Hyde last year to eventually replace Gore. During his 10-year career with the 49ers, Gore has rushed for 11,073 yards with 64 rushing touchdowns.


49ers' Frank Gore pulls out a huge game Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) San Francisco running back Frank Gore turned in a huge game Week 17 against the Cardinals.

Gore rushed for 144 yards on 25 carries. He averaged 5.8 yards per attempt. Gore was constantly moving the chains forward, with only two of his carries going for negative yards. He was also able to show some speed, breaking off two runs that went for at least 20 yards. He wasn't much of a threat in the passing game, picking up two receptions for 5 yards.

With the performance, Gore went over 1,000 yards rushing for the eighth time in his career. He also became the 20th player to reach 11,000 rushing yards over his career. Gore finished with 1,106 rushing yards and four touchdowns. 


49ers RB Carlos Hyde still sidelined


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2014) 49ers rookie running back Carlos Hyde missed practice again Wednesday with an ankle injury. He sat out Week 16 and appears likely to miss Sunday's game against Arizona, too.

With Hyde out, veteran Frank Gore went off for 158 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries against San Diego. Gore should see another big workload against the Cardinals.


Frank Gore takes advantage of matchup


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) Going against a defense that was strong against the pass but weak against the run, the 49ers clearly made running back Frank Gore a bigger part of their game plan Week 16 against San Diego, giving him eight carries on the team's first three drives. He finished with 26 for 158 yards, both season highs.

Of course, the increased workload may have had something to do with the absence of backup Carlos Hyde, who had been cutting into Gore's carries in recent weeks, with moderate effectiveness. Hyde is sidelined for an unspecified amount of time with an ankle injury.

Gore's performance may have earned him a bigger workload Week 17 against Arizona regardless. The Cardinals defense is kind of the opposite of the Chargers, though. It's much more effective against the run than the pass.

If nothing else, you at least have some hope for Gore making a relevant contribution in Week 17, but because the matchup isn't as favorable, he's still probably a sit in typical 12-team leagues.


49ers RB Frank Gore rumbles for 158 yards vs. Chargers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore racked up 26 carries for 158 rushing yards with one touchdown in his team's 38-35 overtime loss to the Chargers in Week 16.

Both numbers represent season highs for Gore, who hasn't had a better rushing day since the 2009 season. He set the tone early, shaking off would-be tacklers en route to a 52-yard score less than two minutes into the game. Gore continually proved difficult to tackle, as he would have managed his third 100-yard game of the season even without the long touchdown.

Gore is now up to 962 rushing yards and four rushing scores on 230 carries. He has a reasonable shot at cracking the 1,000-yard mark in his team's Week 17 matchup with the Cardinals.


49ers' Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree active vs. Chargers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore (concussion) and wide receiver Michael Crabtree (knee) are active for Saturday's Week 16 matchup with the Chargers.

Both players were listed as questionable on the team's final injury report, though it was reported early Saturday that Gore would in fact suit up for the game. Crabtree has yet to miss a game this season.

Offensive tackle Anthony Davis (concussion) is also active after being listed as questionable. The team had several players listed as probable and all are active Saturday, including cornerbacks Perrish Cox (ankle) and Chris Culliver (knee), safety Bubba Ventrone (groin), linebacker Michael Wilhoite (hip), tackle Jonathan Martin (illness), center Marcus Martin (knee), tight end Kyle Nelson (back) and defensive linemen Justin Smith (back), Quinton Dial (knee) and Tony Jerod-Eddie (foot).


Report: 49ers RB Frank Gore will play Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) A source told Ian Rapoprt of the NFL Network that 49ers running back Frank Gore will indeed play Saturday night against San Diego. Gore entered Week 16 questionable after suffering a concussion the previous. It appears as if he has been medically cleared and will be in the starting lineup come kickoff.

Gore may be playing his final two games with the 49ers as he is set to become a free agent at the end of the season. Through 14 games, he has rushed for 804 yards and three touchdowns on 204 carries, averaging 3.9 yards per attempt, the lowest during his 10 years in the league.

The 49ers have dropped from a 1 1/2-point to just a 1-point home favorite against the Chargers.


49ers RB Frank Gore ruled questionable for Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore (concussion) was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day on Friday. San Francisco officially designated him as questionable for Saturday's home game against San Diego.

Because Carlos Hyde (ankle) was ruled out, third-stringer Alfonso Smith will shoulder the load in the ground game if Gore can't play. San Francisco is currently a 1 1/2-point home favorite.


Frank Gore: This could be my 'last two games' with 49ers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore told reporters his San Francisco days could be numbered, according to the San Francisco Chronicle on Friday. With two games remaining, the 49ers are virtually out of playoff contention and Gore is nearing the final year of his four-year, $25.9 million contract.

"I've been here 10 years, and it could be last two games here this year," Gore said. "It's weird knowing that I won't be under contract any more. But I've been in the league long enough to understand it's a business."

Drafted in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft, Gore totaled 10,771 yards and 63 touchdowns on the ground over his 10-year career with the 49ers.


49ers' Frank Gore progressing, Carlos Hyde still out


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore returned to practice Thursday wearing a non-contact jersey as he continues to progress through the league's concussion protocol, reports the Sacramento Bee. Rookie running back Carlos Hyde remained sidelined with ankle and back injuries.

The 49ers host the Chargers on Saturday night. If Gore gets cleared by an independent neurologist and Hyde sits out, Gore could see a heavy workload. If neither plays, the 49ers' top two tailbacks would be Alfonso Smith and newly-signed Phillip Tanner.


49ers RB Carlos Hyde does not expect to play Week 16


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) 49ers rookie running back Carlos Hyde said that "barring a miracle," he does not expect to play Saturday against the Chargers, reports CSNBayArea.com. Hyde did say the MRI on his injured ankle came back with good news, though he wasn't specific.

Veteran running back Frank Gore could be in for a big workload if he gets cleared from his concussion. 


49ers RBs Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde sidelined again Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) 49ers running backs Frank Gore (concussion) and Carlos Hyde (ankle) missed practice for the second straight day Wednesday. Gore said he has no symptoms from the head injury he suffered Sunday, but he still must be cleared by an independent neurologist to play Saturday against San Diego, reports the Sacramento Bee.

Alfonso Smith is San Fran's No. 3 running back, and the team added former Cowboys running back Phillip Tanner on Wednesday.

If Gore and Hyde can't play, the 49ers would be at a major disadvantage. Gore has run for 804 yards and three touchdowns, while Hyde has rushed for 333 yards and four scores.


49ers RBs Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde skip practice Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore was unable to practice and visited a specialist on Tuesday, as he continues to go through the league-mandated concussion protocol, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

Gore was unable to play in the second half of San Francisco's 17-7 defeat to Seattle because of the head injury. Backup Carlos Hyde went down with an ankle injury in that game and was unable to practice Tuesday. Alfonso Smith is the team's No. 3 running back on the depth chart.

San Francisco is a 2 1/2-point favorite at home against San Diego on Saturday.


Jim Harbaugh updates status of injured running backs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh on Monday provided brief updates on injured running backs Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde. Harbaugh said Gore, who left Sunday's game with a concussion, said "he's feeling good. Good as can be expected."

Hyde exited with an ankle injury. "We're going to check today and see what the ankle looks like in terms of swelling," Harbaugh said.

San Fran plays the Chargers on Saturday.


49ers' Frank Gore downgraded to out due to concussion


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) San Francisco running back Frank Gore will not return Week 15 due to a concussion.

Gore injured himself making a block late in the second quarter. He went to the locker room early, and was evaluated for a concussion at halftime. At the start of the third quarter, the team ruled him out due to the injury. He gained 29 yards on 11 carries, inlcuding a 10 yard score, before leaving.


49ers' Frank Gore gets limited work Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) San Francisco running back Frank Gore received limited carries Week 14 against the Raiders.

Gore performed fairly well when he got the ball, but only carried the rock 12 times. He gained 63 yards, which was good for a 5.3 yards per carry average. Gore was not targeted in the passing game. Overall, San Francisco had a tough time getting anything going on offense, and that limited Gore's ability to take over the game on the ground.

Gore will take on the Seahawks Week 15. 


Frank Gore worth a shot this week


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2014) In a disappointing loss to the Seahawks last week in which his team spent most of the game trailing by multiple scores, 49ers running back Frank Gore didn't even have a chance to get going, rushing 10 times for 28 yards. But Week 14 is a whole new ballgame. The 49ers visit the 1-11 Raiders, which should be a gimme matchup, which should mean an early lead, which should mean plenty of opportunities to run the ball.

It's meant that for most running backs who've faced the Raiders this season, which is a big reason why they rank 27th against the run. They've allowed the second-most rushing attempts of any team, with only the 2-10 Titans behind them. The Raiders and Titans are tied for allowing the most Fantasy points per game to running backs.

A combined 164 yards and three touchdowns like the Rams' Tre Mason had against the Raiders last week might be too much to ask from Gore, but he had a two-game stretch against the Saints and Giants just a couple weeks ago in which he averaged 88.0 yards. Something similar, perhaps with a touchdown, wouldn't be at all surprising for him in Week 14.

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him 14th at the position for this week, which is a bit more aggressive than I'd like, but he's certainly top 20.


49ers' Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde sputter in loss vs. Seahawks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) The 49ers couldn't find much success on the ground in Thursday's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks, with running back Frank Gore leading the way with 10 carries for just 28 yards and an eight-yard reception in Week 13.

Rookie Carlos Hyde was the more explosive of the two backs Thursday, rushing for 19 yards on five carries while catching all three of his targets for a team-high 38 receiving yards, but the Seahawks defense virtually shut down the entire 49ers offense on Thanksgiving. The pair will look to bounce back in a much better matchup against the Raiders in Week 14.


Frank Gore among 49ers probables active Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Six players listed as probable for Week 13 on the 49ers' final injury report are active Thursday, including running backs Frank Gore (knee) and Bruce Miller (shoulder), safeties Eric Reid (ankle) and Raymond Ventrone (groin), defensive tackle Justin Smith (back) and wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (quad).

Gore struggled in Week 12, managing just 36 yards on 13 carries, but he wasn't thought to be in danger of missing the key NFC West battle.


49ers list Week 13 injury report


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) The 49ers released their Week 13 injury report Wednesday, and they listed tight end Derek Carrier (foot), tackle Anthony Davis (concussion) and defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey  (forearm) as out for Thursday's game against the Seahawks.

Cornerback Tramaine Brock (hamstring), wide receiver Bruce Ellington (ankle) and tight Vance McDonald (back) were all listed as questionable, while running back Frank Gore (knee), wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (quadricep), defensive end Ray McDonald (knee), running back Bruce Miller(shoulder), safety Eric Reid (ankle), defensive end Justin Smith (back) and safety Raymond Ventrone (groin) were all listed as probable.


Redskins hold 49ers' Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde in check


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The 49ers struggled to get any of their running game going during a Week 12 win against Washington.

Running back Frank Gore struggled to produce, rushing for 36 yards on 13 attempts which also included a lost fumble.

Running back Carlos Hyde scored the lone rushing touchdown for the 49ers on a 4-yard run late in the fourth quarter. Sans the touchdown, Hyde was also unproductive with 16 rushing yards on seven carries to go along with the first lost fumble of his career.

The 49ers next play Thursday against Seattle.
