49ers Carlos Hyde sorry to see Frank Gore leave


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2015) 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
(3/11/2015) 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

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
(3/10/2015) Frank Gore is planning on signing a three-year, $12 million deal with the Colts, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

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.

Reports: Colts eyeing UM reunion with Johnson, Gore, Wilfork?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) It appears as if the Colts are on the verge of locking up former University of Miami wide receiver Andre Johnson and running back Frank Gore, according to Lance Zierlein of NFL Media on Tuesday.

Both players have ties with coach Chuck Pagano and associate coach Rob Chudzinski on the staff, dating back to their days at Miami. The Colts could also vie for nose tackle Vince Wilfork, who spent his collegiate days at Miami, according to the Tribune-Star.

Gore recently pulled back from a three-year free agent agreement with the Eagles after he was cut by San Francisco. According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, Gore backed out because was concerned with Chip Kelly's "overbearing approach." The 31-year-old rushed 1,106 yards on 255 carries and four touchdowns in 2014, adding 111 yards and one touchdown on 11 receptions.

Johnson, a seven-time Pro Bowler, was released by the Texans on Monday. He was the team's all-time leader in receptions (1,012), receiving yards (13,597) and receiving touchdowns (64). Last season he caught 85 passes for 936 yards and three touchdowns.

The Patriots declined Wilfork's team option on March 5, making him a free agent on Tuesday. Wilfork posted 47 tackles and one interception in 2014. He has registered 516 combined tackles, 16 sacks, four forced fumbles, 12 fumble recoveries and three interceptions through 11 seasons with the Patriots.

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.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

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.

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 | Senior Analyst
(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.
