Veteran RB Frank Gore agrees to one-year deal with Dolphins

After a few productive seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, veteran running back Frank Gore was told he wouldn’t be re-signed. Gore has a Hall of Fame resume at this point in his career. He was an intriguing free agent for obvious reasons. Although, he’s not a top-tier option for teams. Therefore, he drew the attention of the Miami Dolphins.

According to Kevin Patra of, Gore has agreed to a deal with the Dolphins, and he will now go back to where he was born and played his college football in Miami.

The veteran running back agreed to a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

He may not be the dominant force out of the backfield that he once was. However, he can still play at a high level in the NFL. He should do some damage for the Dolphins next season. It remains to be seen how many carries Gore will get in Miami as they enter a kind of transition period following an offseason in which they lost some of their best players like Ndamukong Suh and Jarvis Landry.


AFC East


Last season, Gore carried the football 261 times for the Colts racking up 961 yards and three touchdowns. Gore was also a force in the passing game as he caught 29 passes for 245 yards and a touchdown.

With the New England Patriots hoping to bounce back from a Super Bowl loss and the Buffalo Bills trying to take the next step after a playoff appearance last season, Miami could be headed for a last-place finish in the AFC East division. The New York Jets will also likely finish ahead as they’ve upgraded in a few different areas.
