Frank Gore has been running through NFL defenders for 15 seasons. Now with his Hall of Fame resume established, Gore is reportedly considering hanging up his cleats for good.

According to The Athletic’s Matthew Fairburn, Gore is mulling retirement coming off his 15th season following one last run with the Buffalo Bills in 2019.

The 36-year-old served as a mentor to Bills running back Devin Singletary in 2019, but still managed to put up some nice numbers. He finished the season with 599 rushing yards and became just the fourth player in NFL history to hit the 15,000-yard mark.

Gore spent the first 10 seasons of his career with the San Francisco 49ers. During that stretch from 2005-’14, he racked up 11,073 rushing yards, 2,883 receiving yards and 75 total touchdowns.

A five-time Pro Bowl selection, Gore spent the next three seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. After spending the 2018 season with the Miami Dolphins, he signed with the Bills this past offseason and appeared in the ninth playoff game of his career.

If Gore ultimately decides to walk away from the game, he’ll do it with the third-most rushing yards (15,347) and the 25th most total touchdowns (98) in NFL history.
