Frank Gore isn’t quite ready to call it quits. The 37-year-old Jets running back says he hasn’t made a decision on whether or not to retire, as Dennis Waszak Jr. of the Associated Press tweets.
“I still have fun playing football,” Gore said.
Gore capped his 16th year in the league with 16,000 career rushing yards. He finished the season on injured reserve, but he saw time in all 15 of the Jets’ previous games. It wasn’t a banner year for Gang Green, but Gore proved that he can still play. All in all, Gore notched 653 rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground. He also managed six grabs for 89 receiving yards.
Gore has been an NFL ironman, in every sense of the word. The Week 17 absence marked Gore’s third missed game in the past ten years. He’s not as spry as he used to be — he averaged just 3.5 yards per tote in 2020 — but coaches around the league admire his toughness. The Jets and Raiders didn’t balk at his age last year, so it’s possible that they’ll reconnect with him this year.

Hall of Famer? Or Hall of the Very Good who just lasted a long time?

Basically a player/coach Couple carries a game for League minimum why not keep him Jets ?
Come home, Frank! Niner Nation misses you!
Lol good point…with the all injuries at RB that SF had…he wouldn’t be a bad fit and would be a nice story
Frank is the personification of a champion. Passionate for the game, unselfish, and someone who won’t quit no matter how much adversity they face. I’d want him on my team inspiring the younger players.
