Contract Football

Bills Sign Veteran RB Frank Gore, CB Kevin Johnson

By: Caleb J. Duncan

The oldest active running back in the game is on the move.

Frank Gore, 35, has agreed to a one year contract worth $2 million to play the 2019 season with the Buffalo Bills.

Gore is the NFL’s fourth all-time leading rusher (14,748 yards) and spent most of his career with the San Francisco 49ers before playing with the Indianapolis Colts for three seasons. He then spent one season with the Miami Dolphins where he struggled to produce due to the committee approach to running back.

The fact that Gore is willing to accept such a small contract and move to a different city to continue playing football is indicative of how much Gore has enjoyed the game. It could also be indicative of how much he disliked playing in Miami.

Gore will play alongside LeSean McCoy, another veteran, and will most likely be backing McCoy up for the majority of the season.

This means the probability of Chris Ivory remaining with the Bills is now slim.

On the opposite end of the ball, former Houston Texans cornerback Kevin Johnson has agreed to a deal with the Bills as well, pending a contract review. Johnson, a former first-round pick, has been sidelined multiple times the past few seasons with a myriad of injuries. He will probably have to compete to earn a starting role.
