Niners running back Frank Gore has never been a pending free agent … and his inexperience appears to be showing.
After Gore decided to sign with the Eagles when free agency begins Tuesday, he’s since had a change of heart and is strongly considering signing with the Colts, according to multiple reports. Gore, 31, evidently isn’t mulling a return to the 49ers, with whom he’s spent his entire 10-year career.
Gore could be enticed by the prospect of playing with his first Pro Bowl quarterback - Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck - and reuniting with associate head coach Rob Chudzinski, his offensive coordinator for his first three seasons at the University of Miami. Last year, the Colts finished 11-5 and reached the AFC Championship Game, while Eagles went 10-6 and missed the playoffs.
In addition, the running-back needy Colts are likely offering a competitive contract. Gore reportedly received an offer from the Eagles that included $7.5 million guaranteed in the first two seasons.
Last year, the Colts ranked first in the NFL in passing yards, but finished 22nd in rushing and yards per attempt.
