Bills RB Frank Gore will retire when he feels he ‘can’t do it no more’
Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore has long been in the final stretch of his career. It seems he does not plan on stopping any time soon.
The 36-year-old is entering his 15th season in the NFL. According to David Furones of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, he plans to keep playing for as long as his body can hold out:
“I just go how I feel,” said Gore at his football and cheer camp in his hometown neighborhood of Coconut Grove in south Miami-Dade County on Saturday. “If I feel I can’t do it no more, then I call it.”
This is certainly an encouraging update regarding Gore’s health at this stage of his career. Many felt he had been on the cusp of retirement following his final year with the Indianapolis Colts. However, he was able to show that he had plenty left in the tank in his lone season with the Miami Dolphins.
Gore signed with Miami to seemingly serve as a complementary option to promising running back Kenyan Drake. It was only a matter of time before he proved to be the more efficient back and started to essentially split touches with Drake. The Bills are now hoping he can bring another dynamic to their offense in 2019.
Buffalo already has their No. 1 running back in LeSean McCoy. Regardless, it is clear that they are hoping this young offense can rely on the two veteran backs to help carry the load next season.
Gore could once again establish an integral role for himself moving forward.
