SJ - April 3, 2022

Frank Gore is finally ready to call it a career.  The soon to be 39-year-old running back is returning to the franchise that he started his career playing for.

Gore is expected to sign a one-day contract in the next couple of months to retire as a 49er before joining them in the front office.

From Pro Football Talk:

“We’re still trying to figure out when I’m going to do my one-day contract, to sign, do my retirement. I told Jed York that I always wanted to be a Niner, so we’re working on that right now, and then we’re going to also sit down with me and my agent to talk about me working in the front office. I love looking at talent, and I love evaluating talent, and I love ball. And they know that I know football players, what it’s supposed to take to be a football player.”

They don't make them like Frank Gore anymore.  Dude played at a high level at one of more physically demanding positions in football.  He had calls to play last year but decided to focus on boxing.
