Golden Nuggets: 2015 NFL mock drafts, Stevie Johnson and Frank Gore

49ers links for March 2, 2015. Good morning! We still have no resolution on the Stevie Johnson situation. That @Flight1300 Instagram account has actually replied to a couple people indicating that the two sides are attempting to work something out. We still don't know for certain what his status is with the team. If this is his Instagram account, he would seem to be negotiating a pay cut. If it is not his account, who knows what is up. For now, he remains a 49er until we hear otherwise. Ideally he can get something worked out, as he was incredibly efficient in his brief time in the...

Frank Gore: Frankie! Two views on the 49ers re-signing their all-time leading rusher

Could Frank Gore carry the mail for someone else?Turns out the 49ers might need Frank Gore more than Gore needs the 49ers. That’s particularly true for a 49ers team that needs as much good pub as it can possibly get after the fiasco that ensued when Jim Harbaugh left. Gore re-signs After 10 seasons and over 11,000 rushing yards, Gore’s mug might be the most recognizable on the team. No one plays with more class than Gore, whose work ethic and dedication always soaks through the entire team. Gore’s deeds are immense and his words are sparing, so when he tells the media that so-and-so...

49ers Free Agent Watch: Frank Gore

At 31-years old, Frank Gore defied age once again in 2014, and bucked the trend of older running backs struggling to maintain a high level of play. Despite an inconsistent workload, Gore still managed to gain 1,106 yards on the ground which was good for ninth best in the NFL. He saved his best for […]

Time is now to say goodbye to Frank Gore, Justin Smith

As we await final decisions on the respective heart and soul of the 49ers' offense and defense, I take a look at why now is the time to bid adieu. While the San Francisco 49ers-Jim Harbaugh breakup and fallout still loom large, there's almost nothing that hasn't already been said about the entire ordeal. Now, it's time to focus on the offseason and the roster decisions that lie ahead. The team has a lot of considerations going into this offseason. The biggest names being thrown around are Frank Gore and Justin Smith, both of whom have futures that hang in the balance. I never thought the...

Is Frank Gore a Buffalo Bills free agent possibility?

If the 49ers let Frank Gore walk in free agency, would he be a worthwhile addition for Greg Roman and the Buffalo Bills, even at age 32? There are plenty of questions for the Buffalo Bills at running back heading into free agency, starting with whether or not the team will re-sign C.J. Spiller. (Things don't sound promising.) As speculation continues, and contract negotiations intensify (or don't), the Bills would look to add depth at the position should Spiller leave Buffalo. Frank Gore could prove to be a popular option based on his success with Greg Roman in San Francisco over the past...

NFL free agency rumors: 49ers could target Ryan Mathews if Frank Gore walks, per report

Ryan Mathews could be on the 49ers radar according to one report, assuming Frank Gore departs in free agency. We break down what the rumor might mean. The San Francisco 49ers are speaking with Frank Gore this week at the NFL Combine as the franchise's leading rusher prepares to hit free agency. While there is still a chance the two sides work something out, reports now indicate the team might have an alternative in mind if they cannot re-sign Gore. Bleacher Report's Jason Cole is reporting the agent and executive buzz at the Combine is that the team has San Diego Chargers running back Ryan...

Frank Gore could be seeking $4 million per year

The San Francisco 49ers have to figure out what they will do with running back Frank Gore. One report has Gore seeking $4 million per year. The San Francisco 49ers had some preliminary discussions with Frank Gore's agent about a new contract, and it sounds like those might pick up this week. Trent Baalke and Jim Tomsula both expressed interest in re-signing Gore, but the process remains on-going. According to Jason LaCanfora, Gore is seeking $4 million per year with his next contract. LaCanfora also reported people around the league think his best and possibly only chance to get that kind...

49ers General Manager Trent Baalke Intends to Have Frank Gore Back

49ers general manager Trent Baalke said Wednesday morning that he intends to have running back Frank Gore back in 2015. The Colts are reported to have interest in the back. Yesterday, the report from Bleacher Report's Matt Miller that Frank Gore was unlikely to return to the 49ers and that the Colts were interested in him, even being viewed as a "shoo-in" to get him, received quite a bit of attention.  On Wednesday morning at the annual scouting combine, 49ers general manager Trent Baalke pumped the brakes on that story. "It's at the same place it was the last time we talked," Baalke...

49ers free agents 2015: Colts interested in Frank Gore, per report

Frank Gore will hit free agency in March and the Indianapolis Colts could be the first team to get him on the phone. The Indianapolis Colts could be the best place for San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore to land, at least according to Matt Miller of Bleacher Report. When asked about potential landing spots for Gore, Miller cited the Colts, the Miami Dolphins and Washington. The reasoning for the latter two is somewhat nebulous, with Gore's ties to Florida and the team's reluctance to give Lamar Miller the starting job applying to Miami. In Washington, Gore would be a backup, and I...

Report: Colts are Interested in Frank Gore and a "Shoo-In" to Get Him

According to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, both sides are interested in running back Frank Gore joining the Colts this offseason and Miller said that the Colts are considered to be the "shoo-in to get Frank Gore." A month ago, we mentioned a report from the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows that 49ers running back Frank Gore had interest in playing in Indianapolis for the Colts.  Barrows wrote that, while Gore would like to stay in San Francisco, "he's also curious about playing with Andrew Luck and wonders whether a quality tailback is the missing element in Indianapolis' offense." It was...

Frank Gore's agent says they've 'engaged in contract discussions' with 49ers

Drew Rosenhaus says he and the San Francisco 49ers will continue contract discussions at the Scouting Combine. The San Francisco 49ers and running back Frank Gore have "engaged in contract discussions," according to Gore's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, via Ed Werder of ESPN. Coming on the heels of Gore posting a message on his Instagram about how he wasn't sure whether or not the 49ers wanted him -- and the subsequent deleting of said message -- this report says that there is "nothing negative between the 49ers, general manager Trent Baalke and Frank Gore." That comes from Rosenhaus, who is...

San Francisco 49ers 2014 roster review: Running backs

We continue our position-by-position review of the 49ers' 2014 season with the running backs, featuring Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde. We've been talking about Frank Gore a good bit, so I thought hey -- why not keep it going? Thus far, in looking at the San Francisco 49ers roster from last season, we've reviewed the tight end and quarterback positions. Both were miserable times (tears were shed, tables were flipped) but the running back position isn't a beacon of disappointment like the others -- and it hasn't been in a very, very long time. That's because Gore has been with the 49ers since...

Frank Gore unsure where he stands with 49ers with free agency fast approaching

Frank Gore is just a couple weeks away from becoming a free agent for the first time in his career. The San Francisco 49ers have been vocal in the media about wanting running back Frank Gore back next season. Gore has been vocal in the media about wanting to return next season. But Trent Baalke has said that he doesn't know whether a deal will get done. We had our predictions post yesterday, and at the time of writing this, 82 percent of you think Gore will be back. But he's going to hit the open market on March 10, for the first time in his career, if the 49ers can't work out an...
