Didn't you hear? His contract had a clause that said Norris must be retained!

Gore’s deal pays him well and gives him security, because 28-year-old running backs that have absorbed the NFL wear and tear that Gore has can go down at any time. It is not the best deal he could have received. Gore probably is worth more, based on what he has accomplished by NFL standards and what he means to the 49ers, and big NFL contracts often reward players for what they have done in the past regardless of what they will do in the future.

No, the big winners here are the 49ers, who didn’t have to give in to the type of ridiculous contract numbers that Carolina this year awarded DeAngelo Williams, a good running back, but not one that has reached the elite level of Gore. Niners general manager Trent Baalke, who is in the job stage of trying to establish himself among his NFL peers, can say he stood firm against the demands of a hard-line agent but still got the deal done with San Francisco’s best offensive player.
It's official. Frank Gore just signed a 3-year contract extension through 2014 with the #49ers.

lol, and according to wikipedia he wasn't cut at all, he retired.

He had just returned from a bad knee injury and, I believe, his first game back, he tore it up again on a run along the sideline. He retired after that.

We just dumped $20 million in the lap of Ray McDonald, so I guess in Niner Dollars $21 million for Gore is a bargain.

Gore has been one of the great, classy guys in recent 49ers history. He has stuck with this ridiculous team throughout his career. Gore has never played in a playoff game, but always gave best effort. Although I don't believe this is a move that improves the team (since he was already on it), since we weren't going to spend the cap money on difference-making free agents, we might as well give it to the best players already on our roster.

Good for you, Frank.

We should have waited to agree on the contract a day before the SEA game.

Didn't want to show SEA that we were going to use him.
