Frank Gore has officially retired from the NFL. The longtime running back is finally hanging up the cleats after an impressive career. According to Cam Inman of The Mercury News, Gore is signing a one-day contract in order to retire as a member of the San Francisco 49ers.
Gore’s carer ends with a long list of accolades. He finishes as the 49ers leading rusher in franchise history and rocks a ton of other accomplishments:
- Third-most rushing yards in NFL history (16,000 total)
- Five Pro Bowl appearances
- Eight 1,000-yard seasons
- 81 career rushing scores
- Pro Football Hall of Fame All-2010s Tea,
- 2006 PFWA MIP
Gore’s Hall of Fame resume should be a no-brainer decision for the voters, and the #21 jersey should be retired in the Bay Area.

The next stop for Frank Gore? It has to be Canton, Ohio, where his Hall of Fame should already be ready to go.
