15-year veteran Frank Gore is signing with the New York Jets. This will be his fifth team since entering the league in 2004. Jets’ head coach Adam Gase also coached Gore during his time as a Miami Dolphin.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.

Gore, nicknamed “The Inconvenient Truth,” started his NFL career in San Francisco, where he played for 10 seasons. This stretch included their run to the Super Bowl in 2012. He has rushed for over 1,000 yards nine times in his 15-year career and has rushed for 79 touchdowns.
He spent the 2019 season as a Buffalo Bill, before leaving after his one-year contract expired. It appears this deal with the Jets is also temporary, as Drew Rosenhaus reported that it is also a one-year contract.
Gore will be 37 in 2020, and will back up Le’Veon Bell in the Jets’ backfield. He currently holds the third-most rushing yards in NFL history.
