This comes just hours after Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com reported that the Eagles have expressed “serious interest” in Gore. According to Shorr-Parks, a deal with Gore could get done as early as Tuesday.
Earlier in the week, 49ers CEO Jed York said he thinks they’ll be able to get a deal in place with Gore at some point.
“We want him back,” York said. “I think he wants to be here. I know he wants to be here. And I think we’ll figure out a way to do it. We’ll definitely try. I think we’ll figure out a way. That’s my feeling.”
