REPORT: RB Frank Gore intends to sign with the Lions

Per Mike Jones of USA Today, the Detroit Lions and 34-year old running back, Frank Gore are “close” to reaching a deal.

As usual in the free agency frenzy, there are some conflicting reports. Gore has yet to officially meet with the team, but that doesn’t mean that discussions couldn’t have already been taking place.

No matter the case, it looks as if an agreement could be on the horizon.

The 14-year veteran hasn’t missed a game since 2010. Considering how rare longevity is in the NFL for a running back, Gore has amassed a Hall of Fame career and over 14,000 career yards.

Gore is not what he used to be but still has been able to produce behind sub-par offensive lines in recent years. Despite tying a career low in yards per attempt (3.7) last season, he still might be able to help out in short yardage situations and mentoring the inevitable rookie back that the Lions will select in the upcoming draft.
