According to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle, 49ers general manager Trent Baalke hinted at the NFL Scouting Combine that they won’t need to ask running back Frank Gore to restructure his contract.
San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke hinted Friday at the NFL Combine that the team won’t ask running back Frank Gore to take a pay cut. And the Niners look like they’re in a good spot to finally reduce his workload with backups Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James and Marcus Lattimore.
Gore, who turns 31 in May, is due to make $6.45 million in the last year of his contract. Baalke said that contrary to public opinion, the 49ers are in good enough shape salary-cap wise that they don’t have to do anything with Gore as far as restructuring.
The good news is that the 49ers are currently projected to be $11 million under the cap as free agency approaches.
