Dolphins RB Frank Gore would ‘love’ a second chance with Miami
Frank Gore will undoubtedly go down as one of the best running backs in recent memory. The 36-year-old NFL veteran has been a model of consistency throughout his career and as he hits free agency this offseason, the five-time Pro-Bowler is thinking about a reunion with the Miami Dolphins.
“I would love if he would bring me back,” Gore said Thursday.
The veteran running back has now played for four different teams during his 15 seasons in the league. Gore played with the Dolphins for one season (2018).
Despite being 35 years old that season, the 5-foot-9, 212-pound running back led Miami with 722 rushing yards on 4.6 yards per carry. Gore also caught 12 passes for 124 yards and one touchdown in his lone season with the Dolphins.
Gore spent this past season with the Buffalo Bills where he served as a complimentary back alongside rookie Devin Singletary. Gore recorded a team-high 166 carries for 599 yards and two touchdowns for Buffalo.
At 36, Gore’s lengthy career is likely reaching his final stretch. However, the former University of Miami star is just focused on playing.
If any team needs a solid veteran running back, it’s the Dolphins. Recording just 72.2 rushing yards per game, Miami featured the worst rushing offense in all of the NFL.
The team traded leading rusher Kenyan Drake in October which left a backfield of Mark Walton, Kalen Ballage, and Patrick Laird to try and carry the load. However, it was quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick who would end up leading the team with a paltry 243 rushing yards by season’s end.
