“Some guys go to different teams and feel like when they get older, they just want to just ride the coattails of other guys,” said Gore, who ran for 961 for Indianapolis last year. “I don’t want to do that.

Gore is coming off a highly productive three-year tenure with the Indianapolis Colts where he recorded at least 960 rushing yards in each campaign, including his ninth 1,000 rushing yard season. Many had written him off as no longer being the same caliber of running back that he was during his days with the San Francisco 49ers, and he has continued to prove that he is an ageless wonder.

He had put on that display this past season where notched 961 rushing yards, including a season-high 130 yards on 36 carries against the Buffalo Bills to nearly lead the Colts to a victory in the snow. What has been equally as impressive is his durability as the 34-year-old hasn’t missed a game since the 2010 season.

Gore has shown that he has plenty left in the tank to be an effective asset in the backfield regardless of the size of his role, and he appears to be more than ready to prove that next season with the Dolphins.
