Free-agent RB Frank Gore has told people he will sign this week with the Philadelphia Eagles, league sources told me and @caplannfl.

Simple career reference:

Fine with it if we go committee. Not sure how I feel about it if Chip wants to use him as a workhorse

Lotta wear on those treads

Fine as a stop gap and part of a stable. Would like to see a RB drafted too. I feel better about picking up a yard on 3rd and 1 with Gore on the roster.

Don't really get all the complaining over this move. (From the other thread and mostly elsewhere)

Solid vet, can come in and contribute for a couple years for much cheaper than what you'd have to commit to like Murray or Peterson (should he be available)

Alternative is we sign a lower tier player or worse we wait til the draft needing to draft a guy. Which always puts you in a bad spot.

Did that mini stat dump in the FA thread so won't get into it here. But by asking Gore to do less, but still do what he's good at, we can squeeze a few more effective seasons out of him

Can't sign young blue-chippers everywhere.

Not a fan at all. He's BEEN a great player for a long time, why are we signing him to a 3 year deal with almost $8 guaranteed. He's going to be 32 in 2 months, everyone was talking about how McCoy was past his prime at 26 after just six seasons, why not the same talks about Gore who has nearly 2500 carries with 340 catches. Would rather prefer a rookie.

So he's guaranteed 7.5 each year? Or a total of 7.5 over 2 years?

$7.5 IN the first 2 years. That makes it seem total

This is the question I want answered!!!! The first is a head scratcher, the latter makes great sense.

Say whatever you want about signing an aging RB, I get it, but holy moly Frank Gore's career stats per season are incredible in this day in age. His APC in 2014 is remarkably close to his career average. He is as consistent a RB as there is in the NFL, and will be a perfect fit here especially because we will have a RB rotation.

It's total over the span of the deal, not per year.

If it's 7.5 total over 2 years, it's a solid deal that still doesn't make sense to me with all the RB talent in the draft. If it's 7.5 each year for the first 2 years then...yuck.

Not unhappy about this at all, although there's the risk he comes in with a ton of wear on him and just breaks down. Gore is a really good north-south back, and he's a solid pairing with Sproles. This doesn't even mean we won't draft a RB, but it gives us a lot more flexibility in that department come draft day.

Not super pleased. But Gore seems like he never ages and he's a N-S guy to Shady.

If we bring in a guy if that's from the 3rd round or from UDFA we can let him learn.

It's a solid deal for you guys I think - especially if you're going with the committee approach, which I think you'll have to.

For those of you that follow basketball, think of Gore like Tim Duncan. Very high efficiency numbers per 36, but just doesn't play as much. It'll be all about his efficiency when he's on the field more so than how often he's out there. He will have at least one more productive year, though I can't guarantee two; but at the same time, that's why you have the third unguaranteed year in there to cut him after this year if he sucks and lower the overall dead money Laughing
