Free-agent running back Frank Gore has told people he will sign this week with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to league sources.
Barring a breakdown in talks, Gore is expected to sign a three-year deal in which $7.5 million in the first two years is guaranteed.
Update: Gore signed a three-year, $12 million contract.
Gore's stock is suddenly back on the rise as he joins a potent offense that boasted the 7th-most rushing attempts in 2014 (4th in 2013). He has averaged 4.21 YPC over the past two seasons, but has 2,442 career carries and will turn 32 years old in May. His ADP is likely to settle in the 3rd or 4th round depending on what else the Eagles do at running back.
