Frank Gore planning to retire a 49er after 16-year career
Running back Frank Gore announced on Instagram Live that he plans to sign a one-day contract to officially retire from the NFL as a San Francisco 49er, per The SFNiners.
Gore entered the league as a third round pick out of the University of Miami in the 2005 NFL Draft. Despite suffering two torn ACLs while in college, Gore proceeded to play in 16 seasons in the NFL with 9 seasons of over 1,000 rushing yards. He'll be a contender for the Hall of Fame when he officially becomes eligible.
Gore's long and prolific career earned him 16,000 rushing yards, the third-most in any career in NFL history. He had just 4 seasons with under 1,000 yards from scrimmage throughout his entire career, and even in his least productive season he managed 699. Gore overcame his collegiate injuries to put out an all-timer career.
