Free agent veteran riunning back Frank Gore has signed a one-year deal with the New York Jets, where he will be re-united with former head coach Adam Gase.
Just days after Gase said that he wants a "1-2 punch" with running back Le'Veon Bell, the Jets signed Gore to a one-year contract. The 36-year-old back out of Miami is currently third on the all-time rushing leader list and can pass up Walter Payton with 1,379 more yards, a goal he assuredly has his sights on. Gore is coming off the lowest rushing total (599 yards) and lowest yards per carry (3.6) of his 15-year career. He is in the twilight of his career and probably won't see over 200 carriers this season, but he will probably see some goal-line work and could end up in fantasy discussion is Bell is unable to play. Right now he's ranked 109th in our expert consensus rankings and should only be drafted as a handcuff for Bell.
