One day, Frank Gore will retire. That moment will have to wait a little while longer, as the future Hall of Fame running back has signed with the New York Jets.

New York will be Gore’s fifth team in the NFL, joining the 49ers, Colts, Dolphins, and Bills. He previously played for Jets’ coach Adam Gates while the two were in Miami together.

New York Jets’ Running Back Outlook

Gore joins a backfield that has a clear cut leader in Le’Veon Bell. Behind Bell, it’s a crowded mess, one that Gore should be able to find running lanes through.

The Jets selected Lamical Perine in the fourth round of the draft and the club has several other unproven options on the roster. Former Raven Kenneth Dixon, Trenton Cannon, former Eagle Josh Adams, and Jalin Moore round out the backs under contract.

How much playing time will the 36-year-old receive? It’s hard to imagine Gore getting more than 5-10 carries a game, though as Evan Silva notes, Gore always seems to end up with more playing time than expected.

Still, don’t expect Gore to be rosterable unless Le’Veon Bell goes down with an injury (or gets traded).
