What Signing Frank Gore Means for the Colts

San Francisco 49ers vs Seattle Seahawks

After committing to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles, Frank Gore realized it wasn’t what he wanted. The Colts and Eagles both offered him 3 years $12 million; but Indy had one thing Chip Kelly’s Eagles did not. Andrew Luck.

With Jeremy Maclin leaving Philly, and Chip Kelly restructuring the team; the playoffs weren’t a guarantee, and a championship is even further. With the Colts, he has a great opportunity to make a run at a championship, behind a top tier quarterback.

Frank Gore will provide the consistent run game that the Colts need to balance a pass heavy offense; and bring some more veteran leadership to the locker room. Someone who has been deep into the playoffs.

Gore is coming off 4 consecutive 1,000 yard season, and finished last year 1,106 total rushing yards on 255 carries. Something the Colts haven’t had in years.

Recent reports have indicated that Gore and ex-Miami-teammate Andre Johnson got on Owner Jim Irsay’s plane headed to Indy. So Gore not only helps the Colts run game, but could help recruit star wideout Andre Johnson.

This is going to be a big year for the Colts. They fell one game short of the Superbowl because they couldn’t run the ball, or stop the run. Now they have the opportunity to change that. This should be an interesting off-season for Indy.
