Frank Gore chose Colts because they offered 'best fit'
by Jason Butt |

Frank Gore was really close to joining the Eagles. 

But after weighing his options over the weekend, he felt like he had a better chance for success in Indianapolis. A lot of that had to do with the style the Colts run, which is more similar to what he experienced in San Francisco than what he'd encounter in Philadelphia.

"I felt like I wanted to see what the best fit was for me," Gore said, via the Indianapolis Star. "Greg Roman and Pep [Hamilton] coached on the same team in college. Similar styles. ... That's why I came here."

Gore was referring to Roman, his coordinator with the 49ers, and Hamilton, the Colts' offensive coordinator, coaching together at Stanford under Jim Harbaugh.

Gore mentioned that the Eagles recruited him hard to join them but that he had to change his mind when it came time to sign.

"The Eagles came and they really pressed and they really wanted me," Gore said. "When you're a free agent, you want to be wanted. [But] I always wanted to come play for the Colts."

Report: Frank Gore plans to sign three-year, $12 million deal with Colts
by Igor Mello |

Frank Gore is planning on signing a three-year, $12 million deal with the Colts, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The contract is expected to be similar to the one he turned down from Philadelphia, with approximately $7.5 million guaranteed. The signing won't become official until the league year begins at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

Gore backed out because of a deal with the Eagles because was concerned with Chip Kelly's "overbearing approach," and is seeking to play for a contender.

Gore, 31, totaled 11,073 yards and 64 touchdowns on the ground over his 10-year career with the 49ers. He is the 20th player in NFL history to reach 11,000 rushing yards in a career.

Reports: Colts eyeing UM reunion with Johnson, Gore, Wilfork?
by Igor Mello |

It appears as if the Colts are on the verge of locking up former University of Miami wide receiver Andre Johnson and running back Frank Gore, according to Lance Zierlein of NFL Media on Tuesday.

Both players have ties with coach Chuck Pagano and associate coach Rob Chudzinski on the staff, dating back to their days at Miami. The Colts could also vie for nose tackle Vince Wilfork, who spent his collegiate days at Miami, according to the Tribune-Star.

Gore recently pulled back from a three-year free agent agreement with the Eagles after he was cut by San Francisco. According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, Gore backed out because was concerned with Chip Kelly's "overbearing approach." The 31-year-old rushed 1,106 yards on 255 carries and four touchdowns in 2014, adding 111 yards and one touchdown on 11 receptions.

Johnson, a seven-time Pro Bowler, was released by the Texans on Monday. He was the team's all-time leader in receptions (1,012), receiving yards (13,597) and receiving touchdowns (64). Last season he caught 85 passes for 936 yards and three touchdowns.

The Patriots declined Wilfork's team option on March 5, making him a free agent on Tuesday. Wilfork posted 47 tackles and one interception in 2014. He has registered 516 combined tackles, 16 sacks, four forced fumbles, 12 fumble recoveries and three interceptions through 11 seasons with the Patriots.

Report: Colts are 'team to watch' for RB Frank Gore
by Larry Hartstein |

Free agent running back Frank Gore has "pulled out" of his pending deal with the Eagles, and now the Colts are the "team to watch" in the pursuit of the 31-year-old bruiser, reports NFL Network. Gore seems set on leaving the 49ers after 10 seasons.

According to the report, "Indianapolis has connections to Gore with former Miami assistants Chuck Pagano and Rob Chudzinski on the staff." The Colts are in dire need of a running game to complement Andrew Luck's passing attack.

Free agents can't sign contracts until 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.
