Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports says free agent Frank Gore is looking to be paid $4 million per year.
The Niners like what they see from Carlos Hyde but it's going to be hard for them to pass on Gore, a franchise cornerstone and one of the league's most consistent rushers. Even with Hyde breathing down his neck, the 31-year-old still managed 1,106 yards and four touchdowns in 2014. La Canfora believes the 49ers are the only team willing to pay Gore his desired $4 million salary. Feb 20 - 12:55 PM

49ers GM Trent Baalke said the team would like to re-sign free agent Frank Gore.

"We’re still working on it," Baalke said. "It’ll take some time to resolve. It’s our intention to have Frank back." Gore questioned whether the 49ers wanted him back last weekend, so the two sides talked this week. The 49ers may want Gore back, but they're up against the salary cap. Gore could potentially make more money elsewhere with a team like the Colts looking for that final piece.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller reports the Colts are "probably the shoo-in" to sign free agent Frank Gore.

A draft analyst, Miller is not typically a Rotoworld source, so take this with a grain of salt. Either way, Miller reports coach Chuck Pagano and associate head coach Rob Chudzinski both "want" Gore. Miller also mentions the Redskins and Dolphins as possible landing spots. Gore recently called out the 49ers on social media, and appears headed toward an exit from the only team he's ever known.

Free agent Frank Gore called out the 49ers on his Instagram page Sunday night.

"I know the fans love me but I need to know if the management does," Gore wrote. It's the latest sign that the Niners haven't approached their veteran mainstay about sticking around for an 11th season. They won't want to pay very much with Carlos Hyde ready for a second-year breakout and Kendall Hunter under contract.

A source tells the Sacramento Bee that free agent Frank Gore is seeking a team that will position him for another 1,000-yard season and also give him a "chance at a Super Bowl title."

The possibility exists that Gore could return to San Francisco because doing so would theoretically satisfy both of these possibilities. Per the Sac Bee, it's "unknown" whether the new 49ers staff plans to give second-year RB Carlos Hyde more carries. Whether Gore returns will likely come down to his price tag. He can't expect big money from anyone going on age 32.

CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco suggests the Redskins as a potential landing spot for free agent Frank Gore.

New Redskins GM Scot McCloughan drafted Gore in San Francisco and has openly spoken of hiring Gore as a scout after his playing career ends. Gore still has something left in the tank as a running back, however, and could play a complementary role behind Alfred Morris in D.C. Gore is an excellent pass protector.
Jan 9 - 2:38 PM

Frank Gore rushed 25 times for 144 yards and caught two passes for five yards in the 49ers' Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Gore lacks his old burst, but he still runs with amazing vision and toughness and regularly gets more than what's blocked. Entering free agency, this was likely Gore's last game as a 49er. He will turn 32 this offseason and remains one of the game's most reliable all-purpose backs. Gore finished the 2014 season with 1,106 yards and four touchdowns on 255 carries (4.34 YPC), adding 11 receptions. We suspect he'll find playing time in 2015, albeit probably not as a true workhorse.

49ers GM Trent Baalke said he wants impending free agent Frank Gore back in 2015.

Baalke is only going to want the career-long Niner to return under his terms. That likely means on a very cheap contract with an understanding that the team needs to feature Carlos Hyde more. Gore, who will turn 32 in May, takes a 230-962-4 line into Sunday's finale against the Cardinals. "Frank is going to want to discuss his role, and what that role is going to be moving forward," Baalke said. "What is the contract itself going to look like? We can both want each other's company, but to make that happen, there are hurdles that are going to have to be crossed."

Frank Gore rushed 26 times for 158 yards and a touchdown Week 16 against the Chargers.

The highlight of the evening was a first-quarter run in which Gore rumbled through several Chargers on his way to a 52-yard touchdown. Gore racked up 129 yards before halftime and looked unstoppable early in the game. He slowed down in the second half, but Gore still had enough juice to post his highest single-game rushing total since 2009. Gore will likely struggle Week 17 against the Cardinals' stout rush defense, but he showed on Saturday he still has plenty left in the tank.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 12:16:00 AM

Frank Gore (concussion) is active for Week 16 against the Chargers.

Gore was cleared to play after practicing on a limited basis. He'll handle all of the carries with Carlos Hyde sidelined. The 49ers inactives are WR Stevie Johnson, CB Tramaine Brock, OLB Ahmad Brooks, OG Joe Looney, QB Josh Johnson, and OG Andrew Tiller.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 06:59:00 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Frank Gore (concussion) will play in Saturday night's game against the Chargers.

Gore practiced on a limited basis and has cleared his concussion protocols. With Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) ruled out, he should see an increased workload. Gore is a top-25 running back play for Week 16.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 03:51:00 PM

Frank Gore (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

He was limited in Friday's practice. The 49ers host the Chargers on Saturday Night Football. Beat writers are guessing Gore will play, but it's not a guarantee. Carlos Hyde has already been ruled out. If Gore does receive clearance by Saturday, he will be a high-end flex option against San Diego.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 04:42:00 PM

Frank Gore is "moving through the concussion protocol," and expected to start Saturday's game against the Chargers.

Gore practiced on Thursday, getting in a limited session. It's excellent news for the 49ers, as Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) is expected to be sidelined. Struggling mightily in the second half of the season, Gore will be a middling FLEX play for the fantasy finals. He'll be backed up by FB Bruce Miller and Alfonso Smith.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 04:53:00 PM

Frank Gore (concussion) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Gore says he feels normal, but has yet to be cleared by an independent neurologist. With Gore and Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) uncertain for Saturday's game against the Chargers, the 49ers signed RB Phillip Tanner on Wednesday.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 04:46:00 PM

Frank Gore (concussion) and Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) both did not practice Tuesday.

The 49ers weren't required to submit an injury report Tuesday, but they take on the Chargers on Saturday night, so both players are on a short week. Gore visited the doctor on Tuesday as part of the league's concussion protocol, while Hyde hurt his ankle and back in the third quarter last Sunday. Alfonso Smith and FB Bruce Miller are the only other ball-carriers on the 49ers roster.
