Gore's one-year contract with the Dolphins contains a $1.015 million base salary and $90,000 signing bonus, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The terms of the contract support the notion that Gore was merely brought in to alleviate some of Kenyan Drake's workload as opposed to competing for a lead role. Set to turn 35 years old in May, the veteran probably could have gotten a bit more money elsewhere, but he likely preferred to finish his NFL career in his hometown. Gore doesn't have much competition for the No. 2 role at the moment, but that could change once the upcoming draft is complete. It's hard to see him coming anywhere near his customary workload in the 260-carry range barring a scenario in which Drake suffers a season-ending injury.
