In case you missed the small blurb from yesterday's Sacramento Bee article:

McCloughan said this week that contract negotiations with running back Frank Gore were "going good." Despite reports that the two sides are far apart, McCloughan said he is optimistic Gore would have a long-term deal in place by the start of the season.

"We want to show that we are willing to take care of our guys," he said.

Gore is entering the final year of his contract and is scheduled to make $435,000 in base salary. Calls to Gore's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, were not returned.
