Previously, the two were together with the Miami Dolphins. During the 2018 season, Gore excelled under Gase.

In 2018, Gore led the Dolphins with 156 carries and 722 yards. This upcoming year will be his 16th in the league — and he’ll likely be asked to backup Le’Veon Bell unless he is traded before the start of the 2020 season.

Gore was a third-round pick by the San Francisco 49ers during the 2005 NFL Draft. The Jets will be his fifth team in his career.

This will be his third straight AFC East team, joining the Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills before his upcoming stint with the Jets.

He also spent three seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.

During the 2019 season, Gore appeared in 16 games, including eight starts. He had 166 carries for 599 yards and two touchdowns.

The ageless wonder also had 13 receptions for 100 yards.

The 599 rushing yards in 2019 were the fewest of his career. His previous low was 608 yards during his rookie season in 2005 with the 49ers.

Throughout his career, he has appeared in 226 games, including 204 starts. He has had 3,548 carries for 15,347 yards and 79 touchdowns.

He has also had 468 receptions for 3,896 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Gore is the active leader with the 15,347 yards. He has more rushing yards than Adrian Peterson, who is the second-highest active player with 14,216 yards.

Both Gore and Peterson are in the Top 5 of the all-time career rushing yardage list.
