Frank Gore will sign a three-year contract with the Eagles according to Adam Schefter. The deal reportedly is worth $7.5 million guaranteed.
It’s ironic the Eagles want Gore in their zone-read running game, considering Gore never could get acclimated to the Niners’ zone-read package with Colin Kaepernick.
This signing works out perfectly for the 49ers. They no longer have to worry about pushing Gore out the door and getting blowback from the fans. The Eagles gave the Niners an easy out.
At the same time, the Niners now have to sign a running back or draft one. Running back just became a sheer necessity.
