  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Signs exclusive rights tender

    Gore officially signed his exclusive rights contract tender Thursday, which will keep him with the Chiefs this season, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Gore should provide depth behind fellow Kansas City running backs Clyde Edwards-Helaire and newly-acquired Ronald Jones. The 27-year-old Gore saw the first regular-season action of his NFL career in 2021, registering 51 carries for 256 yards and two touchdowns along with 21 receptions for 80 yards in 11 contests, with Edwards-Helaire in and out of the lineup throughout last season.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Gets ERFA tender

    The Chiefs tendered Gore as an exclusive rights free agent Wednesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Gore is thus expected to compete for a backup role with the Chiefs this summer, after taking 51 carries for 256 yards (5.0 YPC) and two touchdowns in 11 games last season. He also caught eight of nine targets for 105 yards, and avoided any fumbles, showing well in limited action behind Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams. Even if Williams leaves in free agency, it's difficult to see much fantasy upside in Gore, a 2019 undrafted free agent who turned 27 years old in December.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Inactive Sunday

    Gore is inactive for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bengals.

    With Darrel Williams (toe) active, Gore is the odd man out in Kansas City's backfield Sunday. Also in the mix on that front are Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who shared work in last weekend's divisional-round win over Buffalo.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Role fluctuates in 2021

    Gore finished the 2021 campaign with 51 rushes for 256 yards and a pair of touchdowns while reeling in eight of his nine targets for 105 yards.

    Gore's role changed over the course of the year depending on the health of Kansas City's other backs. He recorded 22 carries for 110 yards and caught four passes for 69 yards over the final three weeks of the regular season. He enters the offseason as an exclusive rights free agent, so he will likely be back with the team next season.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Splits lead role

    Gore recorded seven carries for 30 yards in Saturday's 28-24 win over Denver.

    Gore tied for the team lead with seven carries after Darrel Williams (toe) was forced out of the game early. In Williams' absence, Gore took over as the lead back on the ground, though his longest rush of the day went for only six yards. Meanwhile, Jerick McKinnon served as the change-of-pace back, tallying five carries and three receptions while also working more efficiently than Gore. Should Williams and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) be sidelined for any part of Kansas City's playoff run, Gore would likely continue to get the majority of the work on the ground with McKinnon serving as the pass catcher out of the backfield.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Just four touches in Week 17

    Gore rushed three times for 37 yards and caught his only target for eight yards in Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Bengals.

    Despite Clyde Edwards-Helaire's (shoulder) absence, Gore got just four touches while Darrel Williams racked up over 100 yards and two touchdowns on his 17 touches. Even if Edwards-Helaire remains sidelined against the Broncos in Week 18, Gore may not see many opportunities behind Williams as the Chiefs try to secure the lone first-round bye in the AFC.
