Maiocco: Gore’s agent seeks richest contract in NFL

Mar 21, 2007 at 6:04 PM--


Matt Maiocco of the Press Democrat says that Frank Gore's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, is seeking the richest contract in the NFL for his client.

From Matt Maiocco's blog:
As I reported a couple days ago, Gore is scheduled to earn $435,000 in base pay this season. If backup running back Maurice Hicks signs his one-year tender as a restricted free agent, the 49ers will pay him $850,000. So unless Gore and the 49ers reach a deal for the coming season, Hicks could be making nearly twice as much as Gore.

I've been told that Gore's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has informed the 49ers that he's not signing a deal for anything less than the richest contract in the league. (Rosenhaus has not returned repeated phone calls seeking comment.)

The 49ers need to pay Gore a nice sum of money, but they also can't put themselves in a position where a big contract would come back to haunt them. As much as everyone likes Frank Gore, you also have to consider that last season was the first time since his senior year of high school that he played an entire season without being limited by injuries.

As Maiocco has previously stated, even without a new contract, the 49ers can secure Gore for the next three seasons. Gore is under contract for the upcoming season, Gore will be a restricted free agent in 2008 and the 49ers can hold on to him with a high tender and in 2009, the team can franchise Gore. In 2008 and 2009, the team would receive draft picks as compensation should they lose Gore to another team.

John Lynch says Frank Gore loves 49ers' Deebo Samuel as a running back

On Wednesday morning, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR. A former NFL running back and 49ers fan favorite, Frank Gore, was with Lynch in team CEO Jed York's suite this past Sunday during the team's 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He remains close with the York family and continues to be a big fan of his former organization. Gore was treated to watching a 79-yard, one-touchdown rushing performance from Deebo Samuel — a wide receiver. That came on just eight attempts, meaning the receiver averaged nearly 10 yards per carry. Gore believes Samuel is so impressive that the third-year wideout is good enough to be a great running back. "He loves Deebo as a running back," Lynch said. "He probably feels that if we

Watch out NFL: Kyle Shanahan says 49ers' Nick Bosa is 'getting better each week'

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa racked up nine sacks during his NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign in 2019. He has already surpassed that mark through 10 games this season. Bosa's 10 sacks are tied for the fifth-most in the NFL. Imagine the number he could have amassed if he wasn't being held so often by blockers doing whatever they can to prevent the dominating defender from getting to their quarterbacks. On Sunday, you saw it with Jacksonville's Jawaan Taylor holding onto Bosa, who still managed to reach rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence. "The reason why [he's being held so often] is he's so good and so fast at taking that inside move,"
