Niners may have trouble extending Gore’s contract

Jan 22, 2007 at 4:43 PM--


According to ProFootballWeekly, the 49ers may have a problem getting Gore to sign a new contract.

From ProFootballWeekly:
The Niners realize it would behoove them to give ace RB Frank Gore a healthy raise before his contract expires after the 2007 season. However, the way we hear it, negotiations with Gore’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, will hardly be cut and dried, since, regardless of Gore’s great success, they still consider him a 24-year-old running back in a 30-year-old’s body. Another valued young Niner with the same contract situation as Gore, starting ORG Justin Smiley, is a good bet to be re-signed first.

Once drafted, rookies have an uphill battle to become a starter. Usually, first and second-round picks are a lock to start, but with the San Francisco 49ers, that hasn't necessarily been the case unless your name is Nick Bosa (first-round pick, 2019) or Deebo Samuel (second-round pick, 2019). In 2020, the 49ers selected two first-round picks, defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, and their time was limited as rookies. Aiyuk became a starter due to injuries in the wide receivers room, and in 2021, his role was diminished when he started the season in head coach Kyle Shanahan's dog house, and he could barely crack the starting lineup. Kinlaw was considered the replacement for DeForest Buckner, but he couldn't stay on the field during his rookie and

RELATED: Details emerge on 49ers WR Deebo Samuel's 3-year extension What's the deal with the $1.95 million in incentives? ESPN's Adam Schefter provided some details. Samuel can earn the extra money by hitting a specific mark in rushing yards each season.

The last time Deebo Samuel spoke to the media publicly was in Los Angeles during the week leading to Super Bowl 56. Since then, he removed San Francisco 49ers-related photos from his Instagram account, requested to be traded, and generated a lot of offseason media chatter. On Monday, Samuel officially signed a massive three-year extension that will keep him with the Niners through 2025. His media drought ended a day later. The wide receiver was among the players who spoke with reporters after Tuesday's practice. "Besides the money, I just love the game," Samuel said after being asked what his new deal means to him.
