Colts’ Frank Gore Wants To Play In 2018

Frank Gore turns 35 in May, but he’s not thinking about retirement. The Colts running back says that he wants to continue playing in 2018, though not necessarily in Indianapolis. Frank Gore

I want to finish strong to give myself an opportunity for a team to want me,” he said (via Stephen Holder of the Indy Star). “If there’s a great situation, I’m gonna play.”

This season, Gore surpassed LaDainian Tomlinson for fifth place on the league’s all-time rushing yards list. If he can rack up 238 yards on the ground in the next three games (and if he can play through his hand injury), he’ll have his tenth career season with at least 1,000 yards. That won’t be easy, but 80 yards per game is doable and Gore is certainly motivated to hit that milestone for the second year in a row.

It’s clear that Gore still has some football left in the tank and there could be even more history for him to make if he continues playing next year. He could also give himself an opportunity to win his first ever Super Bowl ring and solidify his place in Canton.

    Would love to have this guy back in SF but I think he wants a chance and winning a ring. Maybe he will go to the Patriots or the Broncos next year. He’s one of the most underrated RB’s ever, never hear people give this guy the credit he deserves and he’s never brought up when talking about top rubbing backs in the league yet he’s been me consistent every year. He’s a beast. Yea he’s not in his prime but the guys at his age and been the league this long and is still pushing for 1,000 rushing yards for the season. Pretty awesome.

      Wish he would have come to Philly when he was deciding between them and Indy.

        Well said I’d love to see him back with Indy but the chances of that are slim and ya contending are slimmer

    He’ll get signed for sure next year. With all of the injuries in football every team needs a good rubbing back.
