Frank Gore signing with Jets in Adam Gase reunion
The Jets just gained some major experience in their running backs room.
The team agreed to a one-year deal with veteran running back Frank Gore, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus. Gore has played for 15 seasons with four different teams. He has rushed for 15,347 yards, the third-most in NFL history behind just Emmitt Smith and Walter Payton.
Gore, 36, has long been a favorite of Jets coach Adam Gase. He first coached Gore with the 49ers in 2008 when he was an offensive assistant and then again in 2018 with the Dolphins when Gase was the head coach there.
Gore, who turns 37 on May 14, spent last season with the Bills. He rushed 166 times for 599 yards and two touchdowns with Buffalo.
With the Jets, Gore will be a complementary back with Le’Veon Bell, who struggled in his first season with the Jets. He also can be a mentor for rookie La’Michal Perine, whom the Jets drafted in the fourth round out of Florida.
