Dolphins RBs coach Eric Studesville said the team isn't ready to name a starting running back.
"We don’t know that yet," he said. "I think that's going to play out over time." Kenyan Drake would seem to be the favorite for lead ball-carrier duties, though Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald suggested veteran Frank Gore could see a bigger workload than expected. Salguero also said the Dolphins "really like" fourth-round power back Kalen Ballage. Miami's backfield roles will likely be determined during training camp. Jun 1 - 2:18 PM

Dolphins signed RB Frank Gore to a one-year contract.

The Dolphins' strange offseason moves and stockpiling of aging veterans are reportedly aimed at "changing the culture" inside their locker room. Gore, who turns 35 in May, played his college ball at the University of Miami and reportedly wanted to finish his career back home. Gore has averaged below 4.0 yards per carry in three straight seasons and is no longer a passing-game threat. If this is the Dolphins' final running back addition, it will be good news for Kenyan Drake's fantasy value. Drake is a much more explosive option and flashed feature back capability by averaging 119 total yards per game in Weeks 13-17 last year.

Frank Gore will visit the Dolphins on Thursday.

Gore was reportedly "nearing a deal" with the Lions last week, but they signed LeGarrette Blount instead. Clearly looking for a veteran sidekick for Kenyan Drake, the Dolphins also met with DeMarco Murray over the weekend. Gore has topped 1,200 yards from scrimmage every season since 2005, his rookie year, but he will turn 35 in May.
Mar 22 - 8:51 AM

USA Today's Mike Jones reports the Lions are nearing a deal with free agent Frank Gore.

Gore is visiting the Lions at present. The deal isn't done yet, but it seems like a formality. Gore has lost his value as an interior runner and doesn't pass block as well as he used to. He would be a curious signing for a perennially inefficient rushing offense. At 35, Gore is a perennially inefficient rusher.
Mar 14 - 9:49 PM

NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports free agent Frank Gore will visit the Lions this week.

The Lions must be seeing how many 30-plus-year-old running backs they can talk to in one week. They've already set up visits with Jonathan Stewart and DeMarco Murray; Stewart signed with the Giants on Tuesday. This will be Gore's first visit. The 35-year-old (in May) doesn't have a whole lot left.
Mar 13 - 11:40 PM

Colts GM Chris Ballard confirmed free agent Frank Gore won't be re-signed.

"Frank knows we’re at a point we need to get younger,’’ Ballard said. "And look, I want to give Frank a chance to go see what’s out there and see if he finishes in a place he wants to finish it. ... He likes it when you’re honest with him and we had a nice discussion.’’ Marlon Mack is left atop a running back depth chart the Colts will surely add to, either in free agency or the draft. Gore has finished below 4.0 yards per carry in three straight years. He turns 35 in May.
Feb 28 - 7:50 PM

CBS Indianapolis' Mike Chappell doesn't expect the Colts to re-sign impending free agent Frank Gore.

Gore turns 35 in May and is unlikely to have much of a market. He's clearly on the 18th hole of his decorated career and is trying to hang on for a chance at a Super Bowl. That's not going to happen in Indianapolis right now. Chappell guesses Gore's hometown Dolphins could be interested in him. The Colts are fully expected to use a high pick -- possibly No. 3 overall -- on a running back.
Feb 21 - 2:32 PM

Owner Jim Irsay indicated Monday he hopes the Colts will use a high draft pick on a running back.

It's also a strong indication the Colts will move on from free agent Frank Gore and target a feature back to pair with change-of-pace runner Marlon Mack. "You put (Andrew Luck) on that field, healed up, and you put an Edgerrin James -- maybe that's bigger, faster, stronger -- ... this is going to be a special place to be and a special place to play." James was the No. 4 overall pick in the 1999 draft. The Colts have the No. 3 overall pick this year.
Jan 1 - 5:18 PM

Frank Gore rushed 24 times for 100 yards in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Texans.

He added three catches for 11 yards. Gore passed O.J. Simpson for the 16th-most 100-yard rushing games with possibly his final game as a member of the Colts. Gore is headed into free agency falling 39 yards short of what would have been his tenth 1,000-yard rushing season. In 2017, you knew what you were going to get with Gore -- 50-60 yards rushing and the potential for a goal-line touchdown behind one of the worst offensive lines while playing without Andrew Luck all year. Gore rushed 261 times for 961 yards and three touchdowns, adding 29 catches for 245 yards and an additional score. Gore turns 35 in May and has said he'd entertain coming back to the Colts if Luck is healthy. The Colts, however, may (likely) decide to move on.

Contract-year RB Frank Gore said he'd be interested in returning to the Colts if Andrew Luck (shoulder) is healthy.

That's a big "if" at this point, as there are whispers Luck could need another surgery. It's also unclear if the Colts would even want to bring back Gore, who will turn 35 in the offseason. Gore again carried a heavy load this year, logging 237 carries to date and likely to cross the 250 barrier for the ninth time in his career. Gore needs 139 yards Sunday for his tenth 1,000-yard season.
Wed, Dec 27, 2017 01:32:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 68 yards in the Colts' Week 16 loss to the Ravens, adding two catches for 18 yards and a touchdown.

34-year-old Gore was the Colts' best player in a soggy game in Baltimore. His 68 yards rushing were the third most of what's been a workmanlike campaign. Although still effective, Gore has long since lost any semblance of dynamism. He'll be an RB3/FLEX for Week 17 against the Texans.
Sat, Dec 23, 2017 07:33:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 31 yards in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Broncos, adding three receptions for 37 additional yards.

Gore missed most of the first half with a mysterious knee ailment, but was back after the break. He couldn't move the chains against the Broncos' stout run defense, and Jacoby Brissett couldn't soften them up with any big plays. Averaging 3.60 yards per carry behind an increasingly injured offensive line, Gore will be more of an RB3 than RB2 for Week 16 against the Ravens.
Thu, Dec 14, 2017 11:40:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 36 times for 130 yards in Week 14 against Buffalo.

It's a huge workload with the Colts playing on Thursday night next week. Gore didn't do much with his touches, averaging just 3.6 YPC with his biggest play a 10-yard run. This is the first time Gore has went over 100 yards all season. With the Colts playing on a short week, Marlon Mack should have an expanded role against the Broncos.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 04:43:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 13 times for 61 yards in the Colts' Week 13 loss to the Jaguars.

Frank Gore continued to look ageless, averaging 4.7 yards per carry and racking up chunks of yards. He ran with power and showed burst against what has been a tough Jacksonville run defense. Gore will be a touchdown or bust flex play against the Bills in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 04:10:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 62 yards and a touchdown and caught 2-of-5 targets for 17 yards in the Colts' Week 12 loss to the Titans.

The Colts insisted on pounding Gore into Tennessee's stout front, and it had mixed results. His best run came on a dart up the middle for a 14-yard score. Gore lost only six touches to rookie Marlon Mack. Gore will remain a low-floor, touchdown-or-bust flex option when the Colts take on the Jaguars next.
