2020 NFL Free Agency: Frank Gore signs with New York Jets

New, comments

The tour of the AFC East continues.

Former Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore has a new home and for the third straight year it’s with a new team in the AFC East. After single seasons with the Miami Dolphins and Bills, Gore has signed a one-year deal with the New York Jets according to multiple reports.

Gore rejoins Jets head coach Adam Gase, who held that same position with the Dolphins in 2018. Le’Veon Bell is the lead back for New York, but Gore brings a veteran presence and steady hand to the locker room, as he did in Buffalo.

At the age of 36, Gore played all 16 games for the Bills in 2019 rushing the ball 166 times for 599 yards and a career-low 3.6 yards per carry and 37.4 yards per game. He scored two touchdowns.

The Bills moved on from Gore after the one season amid his declining effectiveness. They drafted Utah RB Zack Moss in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, signaling a reunion with Gore was definitely off the table. Moss will be the thumper while Devin Singletary is likely to be the main back in Buffalo’s offense in 2020.
