Miami Dolphins sign veteran running back Frank Gore

March 23, 2018

The Miami Dolphins announced they have signed five-time Pro Bowl running back Frank Gore.

Gore, a South Florida native who attended the University of Miami and Coral Gables High School, will be playing for his hometown team.

Gore is entering his 14th NFL season and is one of the most accomplished running backs in league history. His 3,226 carries and 14,026 yards rank fifth in NFL history. The four rushers ahead of him – Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton, Barry Sanders and Curtis Martin – are all in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Gore is just 75 yards shy of Martin for fourth all-time and has been selected to the Pro Bowl five times.

What is uncertain is how much Gore still has left in the tank.  Nevertheless, at the very least, he has proven durability. Gore has played in 112 consecutive games (dating back to the start of the 2011 season) and currently has a streak of 108 consecutive starts. Both are the most by an active NFL running back.

Gore spent 10 seasons with San Francisco (2005-14) and three with Indianapolis (2015-17). He is the 49ers’ all-time leading rusher with 11,073 yards and was part of the team that won the NFC Championship in 2012 and played in Super Bowl XLVII.
