Free-agent running back Frank Gore is reconsidering signing with the Philadelphia Eagles, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. With a potential Eagles deal in flux, multiple reports have pointed to the Indianapolis Colts as possible suitors for Gore.
Free-agent deals cannot be signed until 4 p.m. Tuesday, but teams were able to begin negotiating contracts this weekend.
[daily_cut.nfl]On Sunday, reports indicated Gore planned on signing a three-year deal with the Eagles in which $7.5 million would be guaranteed over the first two years. The Eagles have an opening at running back after trading LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills last week.
Gore, 32 in May, is due to hit free agency for the first time in his 10-year career. In 148 games with the San Francisco 49ers, Gore has rushed 2,442 times for 11,073 yards and 64 touchdowns.
Last season was Gore's fourth straight 1,000-yard campaign and the eighth of his career. He rushed for 1,106 yards and four touchdowns on 255 carries.
Gore made $3.3 million in each of the past two seasons for a cap hit of $6.45 million. He signed a three-year, $21 million extension with the 49ers in 2011.
