Frank Gore will be playing his first season of football since 2005 in a uniform other than one that has San Francisco 49ers colors on it. Gore has played for two teams his entire career, as the Miami Hurricanes and San Francisco 49ers were the only teams to have had the pleasure of using Gore in their lineup.
We can now add the Indianapolis Colts t that list.
According to Adam Schefter from ESPN, the Colts and Frank Gore have agreed to a deal that will pay the former 49ers running back $8.5 million in guaranteed money.
This was expected to happen as soon as Gore backed out of plans to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles. Gore was intrigued by the idea of playing with Andrew Luck and there’s a chance that Andre Johnson will be joining him shortly to form a Miami Hurricanes reunion.
Andrew Luck never played in Coral Gables and he hasn’t played with Johnson or Gore but their arrivals in Indy are great news for his 2015 stats. The Colts have progressively gotten closer to the Super Bowl in each of Luck’s first three years and the addition of Gore is a clear sign that a trip to Super Bowl 50 is in the plans for the Colts.
