If someone offers a decent deal for Frank Gore, TAKE IT!

Marshall Faulk in his prime was traded for a 2nd and a 5th. Gore is not in his prime.

You need to find "suckers" if you want value for Gore (think Champ Bailey for Clinton Portis or the Hershel Walker trade or the Ricky Williams trade)

This. Give the man a 3 year extension. Elite backs are not a dime a dozen.

Frank is a GREAT running back right NOW. This isn't Taylor Mays we're talking about. This isn't some guy with potential.

Frank Gore is a GREAT football player. Not "average" or "over the hill". He is tough as hell, and will be very good for at least 4 more years. You don't DIE when you hit 30. Just ask Jerry Rice.

1. A 1st for a 28-year old running back?

2. Most Running backs DO turn into a pumpkin at 30 -- especially the ones who run as hard as Gore does.

we need Gore for atleast another year or two. giving the man a 3 year deal wouldnt be the end of the world. hes still probably a top 5 back this year. look at chris johnson last year when people figured him out, stack 8 or 9 men in the box and he disappears, frank gore make a living running through 8 and 9 sometimes freakin 10 man boxes. we have plenty of free money, give him a front loaded 3 year contract and then go from there. no one put more into this franchise than Gore over the last decade.
No. No. No.

Do not trade Frank Gore.

Just imagine what this would do to the team if you trade a guy like Gore just before the season starts.

No. No. No.

i honestly dont see a 1st for gore that far fetched when that team is a team a offensive weapon away from a sb, a team like the colts to take pressure off manning would be a great fit and they know with manning on the field they wont pick in the high 1st rd. frank in NE will be crazy, that offense would be near unstoppable

It did happen again but with slightly smaller scale: in 1999, Mike Ditka then with the Saints, traded the entire set of eight draft picks for the right to draft RB Ricky Williams.

Your dreaming. If Frank was 24 and didn't have an injury history, then maybe a 1st rounder. 28, and injury history going back to college, and coming off a broken hip?

NO TEAM WILL OFFER A #1. Won't happen.

...and how did that work out for the Saints?

Teams now use the Walker and Williams trades as examples of what NOT to do. RBs have been GREATLY de-valued since then and teams seldom even spend first round picks on ROOKIE RBs. Ingram was the only one taken this year and it was at the end of the round.

In addition, Ricky WIlliams wasn't 28 with a history of injuries and coming off a broken hip.

Additionally....as big a trade as the Williams trade was, it wasn't "slightly" smaller than the Hershall Trade. Walker was traded for...

LB Jesse Solomon
LB David Howard
CB Issiac Holt
RB Darrin Nelson (traded to San Diego after he refused to report to Dallas)
DE Alex Stewart
Minnesota's 1st round pick in 1990 (21) (traded this pick along with pick (81) for pick (17) from Pittsburgh to draft Emmitt Smith)
Minnesota's 2nd round pick in 1990 (47) (Alexander Wright)
Minnesota's 6th round pick in 1990 (158) (traded to New Orleans, who drafted James Williams)
Minnesota's 1st round pick in 1991 (conditional) - (12) (Alvin Harper)Minnesota's 2nd round pick in 1991 (conditional) - (38) (Dixon Edwards)
Minnesota's 2nd round pick in 1992 (conditional) - (37) (Darren Woodson)
Minnesota's 3rd round pick in 1992 (conditional) - (71) (traded to New England, who drafted Kevin Turner)
Minnesota's 1st round pick in 1993 (conditional) - (13) (traded to Philadelphia Eagles, and then to the Houston Oilers, who drafted Brad Hopkins)

Thats THREE #1s, TWO #2s, a #3 and a #6 and 5 players.

idiocy, this thread has a whole lot.
Can we add a poll to this thread as to who thinks he will actually be traded?

Cause im guessing that will qualify this thread for deletion.

Trade Frank Gore, you guys got to be kidding me. Ok wait, maybe for a 1st round pick yah, but a 3rd round pick....seriously?? Our running after Gore went down with an injury was soft. Sure Westbrook rushed for a 100 yards, but C'mon look who that was against. We're gonna regret not re-signing Frank Gore if we can't by the time the season is over. Shoot LT is 31 yrs old and still rushed for 900 yards and 6 TD's, Frank isn't even 30 yet hes still got 2-3 GOOD years left.

He's already in a playoff team
Can't believe i am writing this but after watching Hunter, Omon, and even AD, i could actually see frank getting traded. I agree a first or high 2nd would be the minimal, however. Titans may be in a situation where they have to do it.
