Free agent running back Frank Gore is one of the biggest names left on the market. He is set to meet with the Miami Dolphins on Thursday.
He has not been able to find a new home since the Indianapolis Colts informed him during the NFL Scouting Combine that they did not plan on re-signing him. Gore had a visit planned with the Detroit Lions, but things fell apart.
The Lions ultimately signed LeGarrette Blount to a one-year, $4.5 million deal.
Gore already has ties to the area when it comes to Miami. He was born there — and he attended and played college football at the University of Miami.
Gore, a13-year veteran in the NFL, spent the first decade of his career with the San Francisco 49ers. He spent the last three seasons with the Colts.
He is presently fifth on the NFL’s career rushing list with 14,026 yards. He needs just 75 yards to surpass Curtis Martin on the all-time list for fourth place.
While Gore is almost 35-years-old, he was still productive. He had 961 yards last season for the Colts, who were dreadful without Andrew Luck, as they finished with a 4-12 record.
Gore, who will be 35-years-old in May, made 48 starts in three seasons with the Colts. He also had 784 carries for 2,953 yards and 13 touchdowns.
While a member of the 49ers, he made 148 appearances, including a 134 starts. He had 2,442 carries for 11,073 yards and 64 touchdowns.
