Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that free agent RB Frank Gore is reconsidering his potential/pending deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • According to Rapoport, the Colts could be a team to keep an eye on.
  • ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirms the report and adds that Indianapolis made strong run at Gore this past weekend, and the veteran running back has “struggled” with his decision in recent days.

Reports had said that Gore was likely to sign a three-year contract with the Eagles that would have paid him $7.5 million in the first two years and included around $7 million guaranteed.

Gore, 31, played out his three-year, $19,212,550 contract with the 49ers, which included $13.5 million guaranteed.

In 2014, he ran for 1,106 yards on 255 carries (4.3 YPC) to go along with 11 receptions for 111 yards receiving and five touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has Gore rated as the No. 26 running back out of 57 qualifying players.
