Frank Gore agrees on 3-year extension with 49ers
SANTA CLARA, CALIF. (AP) - Frank Gore has his new deal from the San Francisco 49ers, 13 days before the season opener. Just as he wished it.
Gore is set to make $21 million, with $13.5 million in guaranteed money.
The team hadn’t made a formal announcement. That likely will come Wednesday ahead of the Niners’ exhibition finale Thursday night at San Diego.
Gore said earlier Tuesday that his primary agent, Drew Rosenhaus, had a productive, all-day meeting with team brass Monday. Gore said he instructed Rosenhaus to contact him when there was what he considered a “fair” offer on the table.
The 28-year-old Gore, third on San Francisco’s career rushing list heading into his seventh NFL season, had repeatedly said he wanted a new long-term deal before the Sept. 11 season opener against Seattle.
“I told Drew, man, just call me when he feels right, when he feels what’s fair for both sides,” Gore said. “Hopefully I can be a Niner. I want to be here for my whole career. Our GM said he wanted me here for my whole career. Hopefully my side, their side can get it done.”
“Frank is a true 49er. I’ve said that from when I first got here,” Harbaugh said. “That’s how I thought I would feel about Frank Gore. Now, I know how I feel about Frank Gore. The guy is awesome. Somebody should do a movie. Somebody should do the Frank Gore story, because it’s an awesome story.”
Gore didn’t play in last Saturday’s 30-7 loss to the Houston Texans, and Harbaugh wouldn’t say whether he would play in Thursday night’s exhibition finale at San Diego. It’s nothing new for him to sit, as Gore has rarely played during the preseason in the past.
Gore, who missed the final five games last season with a broken right hip, held out for the first four days of training camp, but has been his energetic, focused self on the field ever since.
